Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1 lb.)
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce and garlic; blend well with wire whisk. Set aside. Brush chicken thighs with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 2
    When grill is heated, place chicken on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook covered 8 to 12 minutes or until juice is clear when center of thickest part is cut (165°F), turning once and brushing with honey mixture during last 2 minutes of cooking time. Discard any remaining honey mixture.

  • Removing the skin and fat from the chicken before cooking makes the chicken thighs a bit leaner.
  • Use long-handled tongs to protect your hands from the heat of the grill.
  • Serve your honey-grilled chicken with hot cooked white rice and steamed edamame. Want to save time and avoid heating up the kitchen? Purchase frozen pre-cooked rice and frozen edamame in the pod. Both can be prepared quickly in the microwave. Drain the edamame pods and sprinkle with flaky salt before serving.
  • Resist the urge to brush the chicken with the honey mixture before the last couple of minutes of grilling. As a general rule, when grilling, sweet sauces will burn if applied too early.
