Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450ºF (230ºC).

Step 2

In a saucepan, heat sesame oil over medium low heat. Add garlic, ginger, orange zest and green onions; sauté for one minute. Stir in rice vinegar and soy sauce.

Step 3

Whisk together water and cornstarch; stir into pan. Stir in honey, chili paste and peanut butter. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally until sauce thickens; set aside.

Step 4

In a skillet, heat canola oil over medium high heat. Brown chicken thighs on both sides until golden brown. Drizzle about ¾ of the sauce over chicken and place in oven for about 20 minutes or until no longer pink inside.

Step 5

Remove from oven and drizzle with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds, if using to serve.
