Easy Chicken Thighs Recipe for dinner

Honey Roasted Chicken Thighs Recipe

Through my AIP Diet journey I enjoyed this Honey Roasted Chicken Thighs Recipe at least once a week. 

It’s an easy dinner that the whole family adores and it’s one of those great recipes that’s better if you prep ahead and leave it to marinate in the fridge overnight. 

How To Make Honey Baked Chicken Thighs

Ingredients for honey chicken thigh roast

To start with, use skin on, bone in chicken thighs for ultimate flavour and nutrition profile. 

Fill an oven dish with the chicken thighs and then mix together the marinade ingredients. You can marinate the chicken in a giant ziploc bag if you like, but I prefer to just pop it straight into the dish I’ll be roasting it in. 

Then, mix the marinade through the chicken thighs until every corner is covered in the flavourful sauce.

It’s up to you whether you want to prep the chicken and leave it in the fridge for a few hours or overnight until roasting. The longer you leave it, the more the marinade will penetrate the chicken, resulting in a super tender and flavourful dish. 

Once you’re ready to roast, simply preheat the oven and roast the chicken for 20 to 25 minutes a side until golden and crisp to your liking. 

Depending on your dietary requirements, you can serve the chicken with a side of salad, cauliflower or potato mash, rice or your carby side of choice.
