Honey Balsamic Chicken Thighs
This wonderful chicken thighs recipe is flavored with honey and balsamic vinegar, a mixture that simply can't be beat.
The slightly sweet taste of balsamic vinegar is a perfect accompaniment to the chicken and of course a little honey just makes things even better.
Place the chicken thighs, skin side up, in a small roasting pan. Season the thighs with salt and pepper. Bake the thighs at 375°F until the skin is crispy and the juices run clear when the thighs are pierced with a fork, 40 to 45 minutes.
While the chicken roasts, combine the olive oil, honey, vinegar, and garlic. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened slightly, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat, add salt and pepper to taste, and let stand for 5 minutes to allow for the proverbial thickening upon standing.
Once the chicken is done, baste each thigh with the glaze and serve them.
Makes 4 chicken thighs or two servings.
