Asian Roasted Chicken Thigh
"Tired of the old and usual barbecue chicken recipe? You must try this Asian-style roasted chicken thigh recipe for a perfect lunch or a family dinner idea. Chicken thighs are a full-flavored piece of meat. The best thing about this piece of the chicken is that it has a slim chance of getting tasteless and dry. This delicious piece of meat has a slightly higher fat content than the other chicken parts. Bone-in and skin-on are great for roasting and braising."
NotesYou can marinate the chicken for up to 2 days to allow the flavor to develop even more. Just make sure that it is in the refrigerator the whole time.
Adding rosemary during the roasting process would add lovely aromas to the roasted piece of meat. You can use garlic powder instead of minced garlic cloves. You can also ditch the chili powder if you don’t want heat. Lemons, grapefruits are an excellent substitute for orange.
