Little G is an all-American kid.
He loves classic American food.
One of his favorite American food is barbecue…smokey ribs, chicken, pulled pork, etc.
His favorite barbecue joint is Phil’s BBQ in San Diego, where he would finish up everything on his plate, which is unusual.
Even though summer is over, I wanted to make sure that he continues to enjoy his favorite barbecue, so I decided to bake these honey barbecue chicken thighs for him.
This is one of the easiest recipes ever, but the end result is amazing.
Imagine juicy, moist, perfectly baked chicken thighs with a tint of heat and smokiness, in honey barbecue goodness, so good!
Make sure you save the dripping from the chicken and serve with it.
The dripping is absolutely delicious and goes well with rice.
Little G gave me two thumbs up for these chicken thighs. Try my recipe today, it takes only 10 minutes active time.
