This honey lemon garlic chicken is succulent, sweet, and sour, and will become your new weeknight favorite.
Heat an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken on each side, just until browned. Reserve about a tablespoon of fat and juices in the pan and drain the rest.
Pour about half of the honey mixture over the chicken. Place the remaining whole garlic cloves in between the thighs. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes until the chicken registers 160°F with a meat thermometer.
While the chicken is baking, heat the remaining honey mixture in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to simmer. Let simmer until sauce is thickened.
