So this year my husband and I found out that we both prefer chicken thighs over chicken breasts. Chicken thighs are the moistest, most flavorful cut of the chicken you can get! I always buy skinless and boneless because that’s how we prefer it, but to each its own.
This recipe was one of those “throw everything together and intohope it tastes good” kind of dinners that I often make at home! And now it is literally both my husband and I’s favorite dinner that I make! So I thought I would share it with you!
This cast iron honey garlic chicken is the perfect mix of sweet, savory, and delicious! I always serve mine with either mashed potatoes or oven roasted potatoes and broccoli! You could also serve it over some white or brown rice if you wanted! Either way I believe this honey garlic chicken recipe will make it on your dinner rotations! Let’s get started!
Cast Iron Honey Garlic Chicke. Thighs
What you will need:
- 1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1.5 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp paprika
Preheat oven to 425°F.
In cast iron skillet, place chicken thighs with top side facing up. Sprinkle dry seasonings over top of chicken.
In a small bowl, mix together honey, garlic, soy sauce, olive oil, and mustard. Pour mixture over chicken and make sure to spoon sauce on any missed areas.
Bake in oven for 20 minutes. When 20 minutes is up, carefully spoon sauce from the bottom of the skillet over top the chicken thighs and place back in the oven on broil for 3-5 more minutes (be sure to check for color since ovens vary).
Then you are finished! That’s how easy it is! I hope you will love this recipe as much as I do! Happy homemaking!
