Honey Butter Garlic Chicken

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 23 minutes



1-1/2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken thighs

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons butter

4 garlic cloves minced

3-4 tablespoons Honey

1- 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Fresh chopped parsley or green onions for garnish


  1. Cut chicken thighs into small bite-sized pieces.
  2. Heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet (cast iron works best) on high heat.
  3. Add the chicken to the skillet, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let cook until it starts to change from pink to white and get some golden edges about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Add the remaining butter, garlic, vinegar and honey. Stir until chicken is coated.
  5. Simmer sauce and chicken to caramelize the outside about another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Top with fresh chopped parsley or green onions.
  7. Serve chicken over rice or mashed potatoes.


If you use chicken breasts instead of thighs just make sure you adjust the cooking time as chicken breasts will dry out if cooked to long.
