  • 1 lb chicken thighs, deboned, skin-on
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1.5 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 dashes cayenne pepper
  • 1 big pinch salt
  • chopped parsley
  • lime wedges


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.

  2. To debone the chicken thighs but keep the skin on, please refer to this video and post for the step-by-step. The skin makes this recipe extremely delicious.

  3. Rub the minced garlic on the chicken thighs with your hands. Add honey, soy sauce, lime juice, cayenne pepper and salt to the chicken. (Double the marinade if you want it to be more "saucy"). Stir to combine well. Transfer the chicken and the honey mixture to a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Cover the chicken with aluminum foil to prevent burning.

  4. Bake the chicken for 20 minutes, or until cooked. If the sauce pools at the bottom of the foil, spoon and brush the sauce over the chicken. Broil the chicken for 1 minute or until the chicken skin is charred. Remove from heat, garnish with parsley. Squeeze the lime wedges over the chicken before serving.

You may also grill the chicken on an outdoor grill.
