Honey Butter Chicken Thighs

This is one of my favorite chicken recipes. I’ve been making it for years. You can do it with any kind of chicken you want to use. Chicken breasts work really well with this recipe.

I’ve made this before to serve a crowd. It is a great make ahead dish that can be popped into the oven about 30 minutes before serving if you are taking it out of the refrigerator. What I do is earlier in the day I grill the chicken pieces I am using. Put the chicken pieces in the baking dish you want to use. Make the sauce and pour it over the chicken. Refrigerate it until baking time. Easy, easy, right?
