Baked Chicken Thigh with Kecap Manis

Another of my super easy recipe when I am super lazy to cook and just want to throw together enough ingredients to call it a recipe :D But, I hope this counts since it definitely tastes good even with just 5 ingredients! Chicken thighs, kecap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce), tomato ketchup, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. So, do you think you have those in your pantry? For me, even when I am too lazy to do grocery, I probably will still have those in my pantry and probably a packet or two of chicken thighs/breasts sitting in the freezer. Let’s get cooking!
