  • 1 pound skinless chicken thighs (with bone or boneless), or thighs and drumsticks
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce

  • ¼ cup chopped scallions (green part), for garnish
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  3. Place chicken in a baking dish that has been thinly coated with cooking spray or olive oil.
  4. Cook for 20- 25 minutes, uncovered, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F when taking with a meat thermometer (or until chicken is cooked through).
  5. Remove the baking dish from the oven and allow the chicken to rest, 10 minutes, covered before serving.
  6. Serve garnished with green scallions. Serve suggestions include serving with steamed rice or quinoa and a vegetable.
