Honey Garlic Chicken

Want some killer delicious chicken? Here we go.

This is fantastic and makes the house smell like magic. And the onions cooked underneath the bird are like candy. I googled a recipe and tweaked it, of course, by adding flavor. You could double the sauce to give yourself extra to pour over after cooking, and you might want to. It's just that good. (or use just 2 pounds of chicken, which is what the recipe I found used)


  • 4 lbs chicken thighs

  • 1 onion - sliced

Honey Garlic Sauce

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of Bragg's Aminos (or up to 1/4 cup light sodium soy sauce, be careful)

  • 4 cloves garlic - fine mince - who are we kidding, go crazy (or 1tbsp garlic powder)

  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce

  • 2 tablespoons Coconut liquid aminos

  • 1 tablespoons rice wine vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)

  • 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

  • dash red pepper flakes

To thicken - optional

  • 1 tablespoon corn starch

  • 2 tablespoons water

Top With

  • green onions


  • Heat oven to 400°F.

  • Arrange onion slices in a 10x15 inch baking pan.

  • Pat chicken dry with a paper towel.

  • Arrange chicken thighs on top of onions.

  • In a separate bowl, stir together sauce ingredients and pour mixture over chicken, rubbing it in to coat evenly. Go on, it there!

  • Bake for 45 minutes. Enjoy! Get messy. This is the good stuff. Those onions taste like candy. OR (for thicker sauce, by adding the slurry)

  • Bake for 30 minutes

  • Stir together corn starch and water, then pour over chicken. Using tongs, turn chicken to distribute the cornstarch evenly in the sauce.

  • Return to the oven for another 15 minutes, until sauce is thick, bubbly and chicken is cooked through.

Or prepare ahead and freeze

  • Place all ingredients into a gallon size freezer bag.

  • Squeeze out the air, and freeze flat, up to 3 months.

  • Thaw completely before cooking with directions above.
