Serves: 4-6 thighs
 
Gluten, dairy, grain free roasted chicken thighs with a glaze. Recipe can be easily doubled.
Ingredients
  • 4-6 skin-on bone-in organic chicken thighs (about 2 lbs)
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 1.5 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1-2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • olive oil
  • sea salt
Instructions
  1. First off, make the glaze (you can double it for 8 thighs to feed a crowd). If you have time, marinate the thighs in the glaze for at least 30 minutes. No worries if not though; it will still be good.
  2. To make the glaze: Whisk together the lime juice, honey, sesame oil, tamari, and garlic powder. Taste and add more of anything that appeals to you.
  3. Coat thighs and either let them marinate or sit for a sec while you heat the pan and oven.
  4. Preheat oven to 375F.
  5. Coat a cast iron skillet with olive or coconut oil over medium-high heat.
  6. Add the thighs skin side down to the pan and let them brown for 5 minutes. Coat bottoms with ½ the glaze and salt them liberally.
  7. Flip thighs, salt them, and coat with other ½ the glaze. After a couple minutes, transfer them to the oven.
  8. Roast for 20 minutes or until juices run clear.
  9. If you want to get super fancy you can spoon the glaze over the thighs to baste while they're roasting.
  10. Remove from oven and let them rest for a bit. Serve and enjoy!
