These Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs are all about the sauce! Chicken thighs are seared in a pan until crisp and then tossed in the most delicious sticky, sweet and garlicky sauce. This Paleo Honey Garlic Chicken takes just 30 minutes to make so it's perfect for weeknight dinner.
Heat the oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Pat the skin of the chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Place the chicken skin side down in the skillet and leave to cook for approximately 7-8 minutes until the skin is golden and crisp and then flip them over and cook for another 8 minutes on the other side. Remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside on a plate.
Add the minced garlic to the pan and let cook for approximately 30 seconds until its fragrant and then add in the honey, chicken stock, apple cider vinegar and coconut aminos. Reduce the heat to medium and bring the sauce to a gentle simmer.
Once the sauce is simmering, return the chicken thighs to the pan, spoon the sauce overtop of each piece and then leave to cook for 5 minutes. Keep an eye on the sauce to ensure that it doesn't thicken too much. After 5 minutes the sauce will have slightly thickened and the chicken should be completely cooked through. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken, when it reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit it is done. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
