Honey Garlic Chicken
When you bake this chicken, within a few minutes your kitchen will have a wonderful aroma of roasted garlic. The amount of garlic listed is correct at 12-24 cloves. That sounds like a lot, but the garlic truly makes this recipe. The butter and honey carmelizes the garlic, and it turns into candied garlic. A favorite dish of Tim & Michelle.
6-8 chicken thighs
12-24 cloves of garlic, unhusked
¼ cup butter, melted
¼ cup honey
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken thighs and garlic in a baking dish. Drizzle the melted butter over the chicken and garlic. Bake at 400 degrees for 40 min. Drizzle honey over the chicken and bake for another 20 minutes, checking the chicken every 5 min. during this last 20 minute period. Baste with additional honey, and keep turning the chicken over as the honey and butter caramelizes. Watch it carefully at this point as it will burn easily.
