Honey Lime Chicken

I'm always searching for dinners that are quick and easy but aren't lacking in the flavor department. Don't let having a food blog fool you, I'm not embarking on hours long prep work every night and getting my Martha Stewart tablescapes on. Most of the time, I want dinner on the table as fast as possible requiring minimal time spent slicing and dicing.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it's become a family favorite. It's quick, it's easy, it's flavorful. And as a bonus, cleanup is a breeze.



-5 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
-3 tablespoons honey
-1 tablespoon soy sauce
-1/2 tsp salt
-bone-in chicken thighs (maximum of 4, more than that double the sauce recipe)
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-chopped scallions
-1 lime for garnishing

1. In a small bowl combine 4 tablespoons of fresh lime juice, 2 tablespoons of honey, and all of the soy sauce.

2. Remove skin from the chicken thighs then salt the chicken. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat then add the chicken top side down (basically the side that used to have the skin on it). Cook for about 5 minutes, you want it to get nice and brown.

3. Flip the chicken over and pour in the sauce. Reduce heat to low, cover it and cook for 16-18 minutes until fully cooked. During this cooking process, drizzle the chicken with the remaining tablespoon of lime juice and honey. For the last 2 minutes of the cook time raise the heat to medium-high again to thicken the glaze.

4. To serve, drizzle chicken with glaze from the pan, chopped scallions, and a lime wedge.
