Hey friends– It’s a little crazy here– working ahead on a stack of blog posts to send off to you before we leave on a 2 week trip tomorrow! So I’m typing away, doing last minute laundry and stacking piles of things to drop into the suitcase. So fun!
And for your busy days, here’s an easy dinner, done in about 30 minutes. It’s full of citrusy flavor with just hint of sweetness. A little mixed rice, a bright salad and it’s dinner!
CITRUS HONEY CHICKEN
4 chicken thighs
2 tab. olive oil
freshly ground pepper
2 limes, juiced
1 lemon, juiced
2 tab. honey
1 tab. soy sauce
garnish: more lime & lemon slices, green onion
Salt and pepper the chicken on both sides (I like to take the skin off, but skin on is fine too). Heat the olive oil in a skillet that has a lid. Cook the chicken meatier side down for 5 minutes in the hot oil until they are golden brown.
While they are cooking stir together the lemon juice, lime juice, honey and soy sauce.
When he chicken is browned turn it browned side up in the skillet and pour over the lemon/lime mixture. Cover the chicken and let it simmer on low for 15 to 18 minutes until the chicken is cooked through (about 180 degrees with a meat thermometer). It’s good to spoon the juice over the chicken a couple times while it’s cooking!
When the chicken is ready, put the pieces on a pretty platter and drizzle the pan juices over the top. Garnish with lime and lemon slices and green onion. So inviting!
