Honey Garlic Chicken

This easy dish is the perfect “Chinese take out” dinner without having to actually grab take out. I love making Chinese dishes at home and have been craving my honey garlic chicken for a few weeks!

The flavor from the raw honey and garlic combined with the chicken thighs makes this dish a crowd pleaser. Add some broccoli to the sauce and pair with some rice and your set!
