  • 4-6 chicken thighs (boneless & skinless)
  • ½ Teaspoon salt
  • ½ Teaspoon pepper
  • ½ Teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1-2 Tablespoon olive oil

Honey Garlic Sauce

  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • sesame seeds (as garnish)
  • parsley (as garnish)


  • Season chicken thighs with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.
  • Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Sear chicken for 6-8 minutes on each side and until cooked through.
  • Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over chicken, cover pan, and cook on low for 3-5 minutes or until sauce thickens.
  • Top chicken with a pinch of sesame seeds and parsley.


  • To plate...serve chicken with rice, pasta and/or a veggie of choice!
  • Chicken thighs are more flavorful and cook faster, but you can also use chicken breasts.
  • When measuring out the honey, coat the measuring cup with a tiny bit of oil before adding the honey. This helps the honey to slide out of the cup more easily when pouring.
  • If your sauce needs thickening, whisk together 1 T cornstarch and 1 T cold water in a small bowl. Then slowly pour it into your sauce, stirring until thickened enough. 
  • Consider serving your chicken over rice. Ben's Original Ready Rice is the best, and only takes 90 seconds in the microwave.
