Honey Garlic Chicken

Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs marinated and baked until golden brown and juicy on the inside. They are topped with an amazing Honey Garlic sauce!


I’m a big fan of chicken thighs. They always turn out incredibly juicy and always have a nice crispy skin on the outside. I decided to bake my chicken thighs and serve them with this amazing Honey Garlic Soy Sauce.

The chicken thighs get marinated and glazed in the Honey Garlic Sauce. Its sweet, tangy and thick.


This dish comes together in about 45 minutes not including marinating time. You can always marinate the chicken in the morning to save on some prep.


To make this chicken simply add all of the sauce ingredients to a resealable ziplock bag, add in the chicken and toss to coat. Marinate for an hour or two and bake the chicken. Make sure to reserve the marinade. It gets heated and brushed ontop of the chicken as a glaze after it comes out of the oven.

Serve this chicken with a side of veggies and rice.
