These Chicken Thighs are cooked in a skillet with an incredibly delicious honey-garlic sauce. Everything comes together quick and easy! The sauce is so good, you’ll find yourself using it on everything.

One of our New Year Resolutions as a family this year was to get better with our meal planning and try new things. For most of my family, those new things are mainly vegetables. For me, though, it means new cooking methods and new types of food.
We are big chicken eaters in this house. I would say 4 out of the 6 meals we cook each week involve chicken. From chicken tenders to cutlets to chicken breasts, I can do a lot of things with chicken. But one cut of chicken I haven’t really tackled is chicken thighs. Until now.
My great-grandmother was known for her chicken thighs. She would literally let them sit in a cast iron skillet on low all day until they were golden brown with a sticky glaze. They were amazing. My father, himself, has tried to recreate that recipe and has been successful only a handful of times.
So I wasn’t even going to attempt to recreate her chicken thighs. Instead, I was going to take a favorite family flavor and make my own chicken thighs that perhaps my kids and grandchildren will talk about for years to come.
It all starts with the chicken thighs. Open Nature® recently added a NEW product to the line: Open Nature® Air Chilled Chicken, available exclusively in the Philadelphia area at ACME Market stores. Open Nature Air Chilled Chicken is genuinely different chicken! How? The chickens are individually processed with purified air for 100% mouth-watering flavor.
The other key component? The glaze! I have used this glaze on chicken wings before so I knew it would work well with other types of chicken. And boy was I right! These chicken wings are both juicy and sticky and packed with flavor!
Tips for making Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs:
- You can substitute chicken breasts for thighs! This sticky glaze works on just about anything…even wings!
- I used a cast iron skillet to cook my chicken thighs. The pan get hots quickly which helps to sear the thighs.
- Feel free to add more garlic! I tend to go easy on the garlic (I’m allergic!) so you could definitely add more if you are a garlic fan.

Ready to make Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs?
Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs
- chicken thighs bone in or out, with or without skin
- salt and pepper to season
- 1/4 tsp minced garlic
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
Season chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder; set aside.
Heat a pan or skillet over medium high heat; sear chicken thigh fillets or breast fillets on both sides until golden and cooked through.
While chicken is cooking, combine honey, chicken broth, and soy sauce in small bowl.
When chicken is done and cooked through, arrange chicken skin-side up in the pan (if cooking with skin); add the garlic between the chicken and fry until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add the honey, water, and soy sauce. Increase heat to medium-high and continue to cook until the sauce reduces down and thicken slightly (about 3-4 minutes).
