How to make Glazed Honey Lemon Garlic Chicken?
- In a medium sized skillet add the butter and allow to melt over medium high heat. Add the chicken thighs to the skillet and salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink and 165 degrees.
- In a small bowl whisk olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, honey, soy sauce and Italian seasoning. Pour it on top of the chicken and cook for a few minutes to allow the garlic to cook and for the sauce to reduce and thicken.
Chicken Breast or Chicken Thighs?
You can substitute thighs for chicken breasts. You get a better flavored part of the chicken from the thighs that are a working muscles, which is why they are darker meat. I prefer thighs over breasts for cooking and eating however either is great for this recipe.
How do you know when Chicken Thighs are done?
The safe internal temperature for cooked chicken is 165° Fahrenheit(75° Celsius). A meat or instant-read thermometer is your best bet for determining the temperature of your chicken, and if you’re cooking a whole bird, it should be inserted into the thickest part of the thigh but not touching bone.
