Recently, I had some chicken thighs that I needed to cook for dinner and didn't feel like making it the usual way. So, I searched for some recipes using chicken thighs. The same recipe kept coming up from Cooking Light. It didn't sound like something my family would like, so I kept looking. After the 10th time of coming across it, I gave in and tried it. I was pleasantly surprised. My family ate it all and were asking for more! It is now in our regular rotation of meals. Definitely a winner!

Total Time: 15 minutes total

Yield: 8 chicken thighs

  9. Take out of oven, flip chicken over, and broil another 5 minutes.
  10. Combine honey and cider vinegar. Brush onto chicken. I just spooned it onto the chicken and spread it around with the back of the spoon. Broil 1 minute.

  15. This is even good for leftovers. I sliced some chicken and heated it up. Put it on top of a toasted bun, topped with remoulade sauce I made for burgers yesterday, lettuce and red onion. It was so good!
