Description

This baked honey lemon chicken is incredibly juicy with crispy skins you won’t want to share. Flavored with a delicious honey lemon sauce.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 3 lb.)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

LEMON SAUCE

  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Instructions

  1. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
  2. In an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, sear the thighs on both sides until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side. Drain any excess oil and arrange the chicken thighs in the skillet, skin side up.
  3. Mix garlic, lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, brown sugar, thyme and oregano to make the lemon sauce.
  4. Spoon the lemon sauce evenly onto the thighs and pour any excess sauce into the pan.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes or until the juices run clear. A meat thermometer should read 165°F when inserted into the center.
  6. Dish and serve hot.
  7. Enjoy!
