Step 1

Make the marinade by combining honey, hoisin, soy sauce, rice vinegar, Sriracha, garlic, sesame seeds, and grated ginger:

Marinate the chicken in this mixture for at least 3 hours, tossing it every hour or so to make sure all sides get coated.

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Set a wire rack over a baking sheet.

Place the chicken on the wire rack, and bake for 20 minutes.

Cook the chicken 15 minutes more, taking the chicken out and basting with the marinade every 5 minutes. Make sure to cook the chicken for a few minutes after the last round of basting, to cook off the bacteria in the marinade.

Serve and enjoy!
