Baked Honey Soy Chicken Thighs

Updated: Feb 15, 2021

Super easy one sheet pan dinner is right here and ready to roll out for the week! Cold days and nights like these in the winter, grilling may not be the best idea. I'm keeping the meal prep cooking to indoors with this recipe.

The reason why this recipe is so easy is because the chicken gets placed on the sheet pan and the marinade is mixed together in small bowl or a measuring cup and poured over the chicken. The oven is doing all the work for me, so I can get other side dishes prepared in the meantime (i.e steamed rice, veggies, etc)

The chicken comes out super flavorful with the sweetness from the honey, and salty umami flavor from the soy sauce, it comes out tender and caramelized. Serve over steamed rice and vegetables, topped with scallions and sriracha, it comes out nice tender! It meets all the tastebuds.

Who says healthy weeknight meal prep meals have to be bland and boring?!
