Ingredients

1 lb chicken thighs deboned, skin-on
2 cloves garlic minced
1 heaping tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Pinch of salt
Chopped parsley
Lime wedges

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400F.
To debone the chicken thighs but keep the skin on, please refer to this video and post for the step-by-step. The skin makes this recipe extremely delicious.

How to debone chicken thighs.
Combine the chicken thighs with garlic, honey, soy sauce, lime juice, cayenne pepper and salt. (You may double the marinade if you want it to be more “saucy”). Stir to combine well. Transfer the chicken and the honey mixture to a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Cover the chicken with aluminum foil to prevent burning.
Bake the chicken for 20 minutes, or until cooked. If the sauce pools at the bottom of the foil, spoon and brush the sauce over the chicken. Broil the chicken for 1 minute or until the chicken skin is charred. Remove from heat, garnish with parsley and serve immediately with some lime wedges.

Recipe Notes

If you use boneless and skinless thighs or chicken breasts, please take note that your chicken will look white as there is no skin and the broil function won’t char the meat and make it dark. Double the quantity of the marinade (honey, lime, cayenne pepper and salt) for stronger flavor if you like. You may also make this recipe on a skillet or cast-iron pan on medium heat. Please make sure that you keep turning the chicken if you cook on the skillet or pan as it might get dark very quickly because the honey. You may also grill the chicken on an outdoor grill.
