Sticky Lemon Chicken

Sticky Lemon Chicken

Although the title is “Sticky Lemon Chicken” it is really not very sweet, it is however, sticky. The skin has a really nice glaze on it which hardens while cooking. The ever so slight tartness of the lemon adds a nice contrast to the rich dark meat chicken.

Sticky Lemon Chicken

Although the title is "Sticky Lemon Chicken" it is really not very sweet, it is however, sticky. The skin has a really nice glaze on it which hardens while cooking. The ever so slight tartness of the lemon adds a nice contrast to the rich dark meat chicken.

Ingredients:

  • 8 chicken thighs
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic halved
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/4 cup white grape juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1 lemon sliced thin

Directions:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a deep sauté pan.
  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Brown the chicken pieces over a high heat with the garlic, thyme and rosemary for 2–3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  4. Add the white grape juice and bubble until reduced by half.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, blend the honey and soy sauce together.
  6. Drizzle the soy sauce and honey over the chicken and shake the pan to mix.
  7. Pour in the hot water and add the lemon slices.
  8. Let the liquid bubble and reduce down until syrupy, which will take about 10 minutes or so.
