Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). This ensures that it's ready when your chicken is prepared.

4. Marinate Chicken 

Place the chicken thighs in a large zip-top bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure each piece is well coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish with plastic wrap and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator. For best results, you can marinate it for up to 4 hours.

5. Arrange Chicken in a Baking Dish 

After marinating, remove the chicken from the refrigerator and arrange the thighs in a single layer in a baking dish, skin side up. This allows the skin to crisp up nicely in the oven.

6. Bake Chicken 

Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the skin is golden brown. You can baste the chicken with the marinade halfway through cooking for extra flavor and moisture.

7. Check Doneness 

To ensure the chicken is fully cooked, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. It should reach 165°F (75°C) at the thickest part of the thigh without touching bone.

8. Serve and Enjoy 

Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired, and serve hot alongside your favorite side dishes like roasted vegetables, rice, or mashed potatoes.
