Servings 5


  • 2 lbs (908g) skin-on Alberta chicken thighs
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp minced & peeled ginger
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • freshly cracked pepper


  • Combine the chicken, onion, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, juice and 1 teaspoon pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Seal and shake to coat the chicken with the marinade. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Remove chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Season with salt


  • Preheat a grill to medium high and oil the grate. Grill the chicken skin-side down until marked, 5 to 6 minutes. Flip and continue to grill until cooked through, about 5 more minutes.


  • IN THE OVEN: Pre-heat the oven to 375°F. Arrange the chicken on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 30-40 minutes in the middle of the oven, or until the surface turn golden brown, slightly charred and inside is cooked through.
  • Use a brush to dab the juices on the tray and coat the chicken thighs for extra flavour and shine.



Ensure the internal temperature 170°F.
Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
