  Soy sauce 8 Tablespoon
  Sharp orange marmalade 2 Tablespoon
  Pale dry sherry/Rice wine 2 Tablespoon
  Peeled fresh ginger 1 Inch, chopped
  Sesame oil 1 Tablespoon
  Ground ginger 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic cloves 2 Large, minced or finely chopped
  Sesame seeds 2 Tablespoon (use more if needed)
Directions

Take off all the skin from the thighs.
Mix together the soy sauce, marmalade, sherry or rice wine, fresh ginger, oil, ground ginger and the garlic.
Marinate the thighs in this mixture for 2 hours at room temperature, basting and turning from time to time.
Place on a rack, sprinkle generously with sesame seeds and bake at 220oC/425°F/Gas Mark 7.
After 15 minutes, baste the chicken and turn the oven down to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5 for 10 minutes.
Serve from one large platter, or make it elegant by serving on individual plates with a small salad sprinkled with a dressing that contains just a touch of sesame oil.
