Chicken thighs, a dinnertime staple, have a natural depth of flavor and richness that is perfect for all sorts of new preparations. Honey Orange Glazed Chicken Thighs are a perfect and delectable example, which uses a sweet and citrusy honey orange glaze. The majority of the time in this recipe is spent simmering the glaze on the stove, reducing it to a nice, thick texture that clings to every tender morsel of chicken. Serve Honey Orange Glazed Chicken Thighs alongside steamed green beans for a wholesome dinner. You can even chop up the leftover chicken to top a salad the next day.


1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander

Step 1

In a small saucepan, combine the cider vinegar, orange juice, honey, brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, and coriander.

Bring the mixture to a boil over the stove-top, then reduce heat and let simmer until the sauce has been reduced to about 1 cup, about 35-45 minutes.

Step 4

Salt and pepper the chicken thighs and cook until 165 degrees F in the center, or until no longer pink.
