Honey Chicken Thighs

I'm a chicken breast eater...which is great...but I realized a little while ago that there are several parts to a chicken that are much more flavorful than the breast like the thighs. So yesterday I picked up some skinless, boneless chicken thighs and got this incredibly tasty and easy recipe from a friend and it was delicious...and, of course, I modified it to be a bit cleaner and dare I say, better? 

I paired the chicken with mixed stir-fry veggies and cauliflower rice. It was sooo good, filling and easy. Oh! And my whole family liked it!

E. H. Fitness Honey Chicken Thighs

What you need: 

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 TBSP Coconut Oil (or oil of your choice)
  • 3 TBSP Coconut Aminos
  • 4 TBSP Honey
  • 1 TBSP minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • Dash of black pepper

What you do;

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425
  2. Line an 8x8 pan with foil OR use a silicone baking dish. The honey-soy sauce is super sticky and takes forever to scrub therefore, line the pan!!
  3. Mix all the ingredients (except chicken) together
  4. Place chicken thighs in a single row in your baking pan
  5. Pour sauce over the chicken
  6. Flip the chicken to get the sauce on the other side
  7. Bake for 40 minutes 
  8. Serve with rice or cauliflower rice and mixed veggies!
