Honey-garlic chicken from family circle
This was WONDERFUL and easy to make and quick clean up. The recipe from Family Circle just had the chicken and I added small new potatoes, summer squash and zuccini squash.
Makes 4. Prep 10 minutes. Bake at 400F for 40-45 minutes
1/3 cup honey
3 garlic cloves, minced (I forgot and it was fine without)
1 tablespoon rosemary, finely chopped
1 tablespoon thyme, finely chopped
2 1/4 pounds of bone-in chicken thighs, trimmed of fat (about 6) We used 2lbs boneless , skinless.
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Vegetables If you want them--I added new potatoes, summer squash and zuccini with some extra rosemary and thyme and a little spritz of olive oil
1. Heat oven to 400 F . Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil; set aside.
2. In a small bowl, stir together honey, garlic, thyme and rosemary.
3. Place chicken thighs on prepared baking sheet with aluminum foil.Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brush with honey mixture. If using veggies, place new potatoes along sides (cutting larger ones in half), place chunks of squash along sides too and spritz a little olive oil on the veggies and sprinkle with some rosemary and thyme.
4. Bake at 400F for 40-45 minutes (you can brush chicken with extra honey mixture every 10 minutes, but I just put it all on and it was good--whichever). Cook until internal temperature reaches at least 160 degrees and potatoes are done.
