The Best Type of Chicken to Use to Make the Honey Garlic Chicken
When you want to make the most flavorful chicken to eat, it’s best to use chicken thighs. The dark meat chicken brings added flavor to the dish.
Of course, if you don’t have chicken thighs, you can use chicken breast to replace them. If you’d like to make enough chicken to serve four to six people, you’ll need to have four chicken thighs or four boneless chicken breasts.
Preparing a Flavorful Sauce to Use on the Chicken
While you may have tasted a honey garlic sauce before, the honey sauce on this chicken has such a unique taste. It consists of chicken broth, soy sauce, honey, and ketchup.
The soy sauce adds a bit of tang, but the honey offers a slight touch of sweetness, both of which taste incredible when combined with the broth and ketchup.
Not only does the sauce taste great, but so does the seasonings you’ll use on chicken to give it even more flavor. If you want you can sprinkle with some chopped green onions once you are done.
The greatest part about this recipe is the delicious honey garlic sauce. Next time you go to the grocery store be sure to pick up all the ingredients needed for these honey-garlic chicken thighs.
Some recipes call for red chili flakes, chili sauce, tomato paste, and sometimes lemon juice. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s awesome for the whole family.
