EASY HONEY GARLIC CHICKEN THIGHS WITH GREEN ONIONS the marinade for these chicken thighs is super simple and quick to prep, and you'll end up with the most delicious, sticky honey-garlic thighs.

It’s been awhile since I shared recipes on the savoury side of life, but recently I’ve cooked up a few for the various different meat rotations we tend to keep in our kitchen. One of them, of course, is the chicken thigh. I love chicken thighs, whether they’re skinless and boneless or skin-on and bone-in, they’re just so easy to roast, they’re always delicious, and they are also the perfect salad accompaniment, and I go through my salad phases (currently in a salad phase, if it wasn’t already clear).

However, even if you are NOT in the salad phase of your life, trust me, you will still find many a side that will pair well with these sticky, sweet, and so delicious chicken thighs. I can suggest a few: try pan-fried or boiled broccoli with salt and pepper (simply), or sheet roasted cauliflower sprinkled with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano. I’ve also been dreaming (ha) about a green bean and bacon dish, that would be so good with these. Or, you can always stick with the basics: cauliflower rice.

Back to the chicken though: these thighs come together quickly, and the longer you marinade, the better the flavour will be– but I, too, live a real life where you don’t always have the time to let something sit in the fridge for 24 hours before you eat it– so if you don’t have time for the marinade, just go ‘head and make these without it. 

Either way, you’ll end up with perfectly cooked and sweetly delicious chicken thighs that adults and children alike will be devouring. It’s simply a recipe that’s hard not too like. And I can imagine using this marinade on other types of chicken as well, it would be delicious on chicken breasts too.
