  1. Step 1

    Whisk vinegar, soy sauce, honey, toasted sesame oil, chili garlic sauce, minced garlic, and salt together in a bowl. Pour 1/2 of the marinade into a resealable plastic bag; retain the other 1/2 of the marinade for the sauce. Place chicken thighs into the bag, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour, turning the bag once or twice.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Meanwhile, pour reserved marinade into a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and simmer, stirring often, until thick, 3 to 5 minutes; set sauce aside.
  3. Step 3

    Remove chicken thighs from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard used marinade. Place chicken thighs into a 9x13-inch baking dish; brush with 1/3 of the thickened marinade from the saucepan.
  4. Step 4

    Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, basting one more time after 10 minutes; an instant-read thermometer inserted into a chicken thigh should read 165 degrees F (75 degrees C). Let stand for 5 or 10 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Bring sauce back to a boil for 1 minute; serve over chicken and sprinkle with green onions.
