Other Recipes You Might Like
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.

Hey Rasa Malaysia Nice recipe, what a great combination of Honey with Barbecue
Tasted wonderful!! I made your baked honey BBQ chicken recipe earlier in the week and had some of that left over. Thank you Rasa
Awesome thanks for trying my baked honey barbecue chicken.
You shared an amazing recipe. I tired it today and got a passionate taste.
I love this recipe very much, it looks delicious. I just brought some Honey from hometown. I think I would like to try this.
Would you please let me know what barbecue sauce you used? There are so many flavors of barbecue sauce. Different brands can change the taste of the recipe. I would like to get a brand similar to what you used. I do not think that most of us feel the same as Ken! I like to know the brand because sometimes a different flavored item can ruin a recipe. It is our choice as to whether we you the same brand you used or not!! By the way THANK YOU for posting your wonderful recipes.
I used Essential Everyday Original BBQ Sauce. :)
