  • 2 tablespoon butter unsalted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 9 chicken thighs boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper or to taste
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon parsley chopped for garnish


  • Heat the butter and oil: Add the butter and olive oil to a large skillet and heat until the butter has melted, over medium-high heat.
  • Cook chicken thighs: Add the chicken thighs to the skillet, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes until golden and crispy. Do not try and flip the chicken before, when the chicken is done it will release easily from the pan. Flip the thighs over and season with a bit more salt and pepper. Cook for another 5 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked through. It should be golden and crispy all around. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  • Make honey garlic sauce: Reduce the heat to a medium. Drain about half of the oil from the skillet. There should still be a couple tbsp of fat left. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook for about 30 seconds. Stir in the honey and soy sauce. Turn off the heat.
  • Add chicken back to skillet: Add the chicken back to the skillet smooth side down, move it around a bit so that it gets covered in the sauce then flip it over and repeat. 
  • Garnish and serve: Garnish with chopped parsley or any other fresh herb you like and serve over cooked rice.



Leftovers: Store leftover chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
Freezing: Freeze this stored in airtight containers for up to 3 months!
