Sesame Broiled Chicken Thighs

If you happen to crave Chinese language takeout as a lot as I do, whip up these fast and scrumptious sesame rooster thighs as a substitute of reaching on your cellphone. The deep, nutty taste of sesame oil tempers the sweetness of the maple syrup on this candy and savory dish. I prefer to serve these with a steamed and buttered vegetable like broccoli and Cauliflower “Rice” for a filling meal. Add non-obligatory sesame seeds for a presentation to rival your native takeout joint.
