Honey BBQ Chicken Thighs

There’s no excuse not to try this recipe …

Finding organic chicken has become much easier to do, with options ranging from breasts, wings, drumsticks, thighs, and whole chickens. Thankfully, there are plenty of healthy recipes available to create delicious, easy meals!

Organic chicken thighs
Raw unfiltered honey
Dried red chili pepper flakes
Your favorite BBQ sauce
Coarse ground black pepper
Baking sheet

Most of the time you can find chicken thighs packaged in quantities of 4-6 pieces, which makes it easy to plan at a few different meals. You can also use the whole package for this recipe and freeze the leftovers (if there are any …)

Remove thighs from packaging, rinse, and store in a glass container in the fridge with a little bit of avocado oil until ready to bake.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and place thighs on a baking sheet. To make the glaze, combine honey, red chili flakes and BBQ sauce in a small bowl. Spoon over top of chicken and sprinkle with pepper.

Cover tightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue heating for another 15 minutes and serve.
