Ingredients

  • 1-1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  • In a large resealable plastic bag or bowl, combine the chicken thighs with the rest of the ingredients. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Heat one tablespoon of olive oil or avocado oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken thighs to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes. Do not throw away the marinade.
  • Flip the chicken and cook for another 6-7 minutes. Make some room in the pan and add the remaining marinade to the pan.
  • Increase the heat slightly and boil the sauce for about 5 minutes until the sauce reduces and thickens.* Turn the chicken to coat in the sauce, turn off the heat and place on a plate, topped with the remaining sauce.
  • Serve and enjoy!
