Chicken Thighs with Honey and Hot Pepper


Difficulty: Medium
Feeds: 2 people
Time: 40 minutes


  • 2 12 Ounces Chicken Thighs
  • 1 Cup Chicken Broth
  • ¼ Cup of Honey
  • 2 Green Onions (Sliced)
  • 1 Garlic Clove (Minced)
  • 1 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes (Crushed)
  • 1 Tsp Ground Ginger
  • 2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
  • Salt and Pepper


Before getting started, turn on your oven to 375F so it is ready to cook the chicken when we get to that step!

Get a relatively large pan and heat the oil. Then add the ginger, onions, garlic and pepper flakes. Cook all the ingredients for about 1 minute and then add the chicken thighs.

Cook the chicken on both sides until it becomes brown and then put it on a baking sheet (only the chicken). Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake the chicken for about 25-35 minutes, until it is completely cooked.

While you wait for the chicken to cook, add the broth and honey on the sauce that’s left on the pan and start boiling/simmering it until the amount of sauce/glaze is reduced to ½.

When the chicken is done and you are ready to serve it, put some of the sauce/glaze from the pan onto the chicken and you’re ready to go! Now you’re ready to enjoy baked chicken with your own homemade glaze!
