Luscious Honey Lemon Chicken
Directions
10 STEPS
1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2
Zest the 2 lemons, then juice them to obtain 1/2 cup lemon juice.
3
In a cast iron skillet or oven-safe pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken thighs, skin-side down and cook for 3-4 minutes until browned.
4
Flip the chicken thighs and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
5
Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
6
While the chicken is cooking, prepare the sauce by whisking together the lemon zest, lemon juice, honey, garlic, sea salt, and fresh oregano.
7
Once the chicken is cooked, remove the skillet from the oven and set the chicken aside on a plate.
8
Pour the sauce into the skillet, scraping up any browned bits, and simmer for 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.
9
Pour the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with fresh parsley before serving.
10
Serve the Luscious Honey Lemon Chicken with a green salad and crusty bread for dipping into the delicious sauce.
