Instructions Checklist
  • Season chicken with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

  • Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sear until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centers should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Drain most of the excess grease from the pan, leaving about 2 tablespoons behind.

  • Arrange chicken thighs skin-side down in the pan. Place crushed garlic between the chicken and fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add honey, water, vinegar, and soy sauce. Increase heat to medium-high and cook until sauce reduces down and thickens slightly, 3 to 4 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Both bone-in or boneless chicken thighs work here.

Substitute chicken broth for the water if desired.

Winner winner chicken dinner! I do believe this is it. Did not change a thing except for using 4 bone-in chicken thighs as opposed to 6. Served it over rice with green beans on the side. We loved it and will be making it again. Read More
