Cardamom Chicken with Salt and Pepper Crust Recipe
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 teaspoons honey
- ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
- 6 chicken thighs
- ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
- ¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
step 1: Place the garlic, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey and cardamom in a resealable plastic bag. Place chicken thighs in the bag, and squeeze to coat. Press out most of the air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 hours.
step 2: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Remove the chicken from the marinade, and discard the marinade. Place chicken on a broiling pan or baking sheet. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
step 3: Roast in the oven for 40 minutes, or until chicken is browned and crisp, and cooked through.
