More About This Recipe
  • Sweet and sour flavors mix and match in this honey-glazed grilled chicken thigh recipe. The blend of sweet honey and tangy soy sauce adds to the rich, juicy flavor of the darker meat. Pop these thighs on the grill and your dinner is ready in 20 minutes flat! While chicken thighs are not as lean as chicken breasts, they are still a great source of essential vitamins and nutrients. In fact, each chicken thigh contains roughly 28 grams of protein! This contributes a significant amount toward your daily protein intake requirements —46 grams for women and 56 grams for men. If you’d like to make chicken thighs a bit leaner, you can remove the skin and fat from the chicken before cooking to minimize your saturated fat intake. Looking to feed a crowd?
