Oven Baked Sriracha Chicken

oven baked Sriracha chickenOne of my most favorite blogs, Alida's Kitchen, featured an amazing looking recipe for Oven Baked Sriracha Chicken.  I love anything with Sriracha and lately I have been putting it on and in nearly everything I make (my favorite is Sriracha Chicken Stir Fry.)  I even mix it with ketchup to boost the flavor.  The original recipe calls for two teaspoons of Sriracha, I upped it to a tablespoon, but next time I am going to double that because I love the spice!  Spooning the sauce in underneath the skin really boosts ths flavor of the meat.  Miss F couldn't get enough of the meat, she kept saying "more chicken."  That little girl loves her spice. 
Oven Baked Sriracha Chicken

1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced greens and minced whites
¼ cup Hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
4 chicken thighs
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the minced whites of the green onions, Hoisin sauce, ginger, garlic, lime juice, and the Sriracha. Toss each thigh in the sauce, coating thoroughly.  Spoon the remaining sauce underneath the chicken skin.   Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, turning halfway through baking. Serve topped with green onions and sesame seeds.
