Last night was one of those nights, know what I mean? I had minimal time and even more minimal ingredients to work with, and thus a new favorite recipe was born.
My kids LOVED this recipe and I loved that it used things I almost always have on hand, so you probably do too.
This is a quick & easy one pot recipe that can be on the table in about 30 minutes.
Serve it over rice or noodles and with some raw veggie sticks and you’re gold.
I am the world’s worst blogger. Worst ever. Why? Because I commit to improving the photography on my posts and bam, I immediately forget to take a photograph. Sorry about that.
Honey Garlic Chicken & Onions
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized chunks
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 cup butter, divided
2 medium onions, diced
2 Tbsp garlic powder
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup soy sauce
a few dashes hot sauce (I used Sriracha but any will do)
Sprinkle salt & pepper over chicken pieces. Melt half of the butter in a skillet over medium heat, add the chicken and brown, remove to plate.
Drain the fat out of the skillet and return to heat. Add remaining butter and saute onions until they are soft and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic powder and cook another minute or two.
Put the chicken back into the skillet. Add the honey, soy sauce, and hot sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Toss the chicken around the sauce to cover before serving.
