When You Don’t Know What To Make, Make This Easy Chicken Recipe

This is one of those rare recipes that the whole family will actually like!

A couple of weeks ago I shared a recipe for one of my family’s favorite and most frequently requested meals, Parmesan chicken. It’s also one of my favorite meals too, and only partly because it tastes so good. 🙂 The other big reason I love it is because it’s actually one of the easiest recipes in my arsenal! (If you missed the recipe for Parmesan chicken, you can check it out at the link below.)

Since that post proved to be quite popular, I’ve decided to make a concerted effort to share more of my favorite quick-and-easy recipes. You can never have too many of them in your recipe collection, in my opinion! The speedy and delicious recipe I’ll be sharing with you today is another favorite of our family: Honey Garlic Chicken. (Mmmm!) These Asian-inspired chicken thighs come together with a sweet and tangy sauce that will have you reaching for seconds (and possibly thirds), and all this deliciousness is achieved in just one pan! Give it a try the next time you’re in need of a quick win at dinnertime. 🙂

Honey Garlic Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water (or chicken broth)
  • 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce

Directions:

Season the chicken thighs well with salt, pepper, and the garlic powder. Set aside.

Heat a little bit of cooking oil in a skillet over medium-high heat on your stovetop. Sear the chicken thighs on both sides, and continue to cook until done (about 5-6 minutes per side).

While the chicken is cooking, mix the honey, water, vinegar, and soy sauce together in a small bowl and set aside.

When the chicken is done, add the crushed garlic to the pan and cook for about 30 seconds, until the garlic is fragrant.

Next, pour the liquid mixture from the bowl into the pan. Cook the liquid and chicken together until the sauce thickens slightly, about 3-4 minutes.

Garnish with green onions if desired, and serve warm. I like to spoon the chicken and sauce on top of rice, but you could put it over veggies, pasta, or even a salad.
