Preheat oven to 375℉ (190℃).
In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, honey, mustard, vinegar, hot pepper flakes and a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, just about to the smoking and shimmering state. (Well pre-heated).
Add the chicken thighs, cook turning until well browned. About 7 minutes per side. Remove and set aside on a plate.
Add the orange juice mixture to the skillet and cook, stirring until thickened.
Dip chicken into glace heavily coating and transfer to a baking dish.
Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until the thickest part of the chicken thigh reaches 175 degrees F and it is cooked through.
Heat the remaining glaze until very thick, thin with 1 tablespoon of orange juice and spoon over each chicken thigh to serve.
