I work from home, but that doesn’t mean I always ( or ever) have time to throw together a three course meal. I am always looking for meals that are healthy, feature a ton of fresh veggies, and can be either made ahead of time, or that comes together in an hour or less start to finish.
This recipe for Honey Teriyaki Chicken ticks all of my boxes, it pairs well with any veggies, comes together quickly with pantry staples, and is pretty effortless overall, and of course most importantly, my family loves it.
This sweet and savory recipe is a great week night dish, because it comes together very quickly, and can even be made the night before and left to marinate for a ton of flavor come dinner time. I like to serve this with oven roasted potatoes and veggies, but it’s equally good over rice. This recipe makes enough for my family of 5, 2 adults and 3 children.
If your family prefers white meat chicken, you can substitute the chicken thighs for chicken breast.

You Will Need
1.5 – 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
