Preheat oven to 425°F.
In a medium bowl, whisk together ketchup, honey, garlic, soy sauce, pepper, butter and salt to taste. Place chicken thighs in the sauce and toss to coat. While chicken sits in sauce, remove stems and seeds from peppers and slice thinly.
Place chicken on a parchment lined or oiled baking pan. Toss peppers quickly in remaining sauce and spread them evenly around the chicken. If you have anymore sauce, spread it on chicken.
Bake for about 25 - 30 minutes or until chicken meets an internal temperature of 165°F.
When removing from oven, there will be some excess liquid. Carefully drain that into the sink if desired.
Serve on top of rice and enjoy! Top with sesame seeds if desired.
You can use reduced sodium and /or reduced sugar ketchup if desired.
