Rest Day Recipe

HONEY SESAME CHICKEN

Recipe courtesy of purewow.com

1 pound skin-on chicken thighs

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

⅓ cup chicken broth

3 tablespoons soy sauce

3 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, ginger and garlic.

2. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chicken to the skillet, skin side down, and sear until evenly browned, about 5 minutes. Flip the chicken skin side up.

3. Pour the broth mixture into the skillet and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is fully cooked, 15 to 17 minutes.

Serve with roasted or steamed broccoli and cauliflower rice or white or brown rice.
