Tips for Perfect Chicken Thighs (Golden & Juicy Every Time)

I use a teflon brush for basting the sauce for this chicken. I like to initially brush one side and then turn it over after twenty minutes to baste the other side. Any leftover basting sauce is used after another twenty minutes to coat the first side again.

One thing I do want to warn you is making sure that you use garlic powder and not garlic salt. Garlic powder is free of salt whereas garlic salt has a lot of sodium in it.

I hope that you make my recipe for this golden baked chicken with basting sauce because it is moist, juicy, tender, and full of more incredible flavor than you can imagine. Furthermore, it also smells so delicious as it bakes and comes out of the oven with a beautiful appearance.
