  • 3 -4lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (Cut large pieces in half. See recipe note.)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon miso
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Adams natural peanut butter (Use any natural peanut butter w/o added sugar)
  • 1 " ginger (I use frozen grated ginger)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon mirin
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha
  • 3 stalks green onions


  • I use chicken that is partially defrosted and still has some ice on it. This helps to add a bit of water to the marinade. If your chicken is fully defrosted, add 3T. of water. Serve with rice.



Step 1
Place all the ingredients, except for the green onions and chicken, in a mini blender. Pulse until everything is well blended. Add in the green onions. If grilling, reserve 1/4 cup for basting.
Step 2
Place the chicken in a resealable bag and pour the marinade over it. Marinate for at least 1 hour.
Step 3
Bake - Place chicken in a large baking dish or foil lined pan. Discard leftover marinade. Bake at 425°F for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Grill - Place chicken on the grill over medium heat. Cover and grill for about 7-10 minutes per side. Baste with the reserve marinade for the last 5 minutes of grilling.
