Spicy Honey Chicken Thighs

Friday, November 14, 2014

This is a go- to recipe for those really busy weeknights.Super simple to put together and the end result is a super tasty chicken dish. I use local honey from a local apiary and it is soooo good. I read somewhere that when cooking with honey, try using local honey produced by bees indigenous to your region. The honey tasted wonderful, but I am not sure if it was because of the local bees or if it was all in my head. Who knows. But I will add this meal to my weeknight rotation. And if I do have leftovers, they are great the next day as pulled chicken sandwiches . * And as always, I double the recipe to feed my family of 5.
