"The combination of a sweet glaze, tangy shallots and pan-roasted chicken makes this a quick but decadent one-pan meal. Great served alongside a crisp salad."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Pat the chicken dry and season all over with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium. Add the shallots and cook, turning frequently, until lightly caramelized on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer the shallots to a medium bowl and set aside.

Step 2

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet, and raise the heat to medium-high. Place the chicken skin side down and sear without moving until the skin is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Turn and cook the other side until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Reduce heat to medium-low, and add 1/4 cup water to the skillet. Use a spatula or tongs to loosen any stuck bits. Stir the honey, lime juice, garlic and chile into the liquid around the chicken pieces. Cover with a lid or foil, and cook until the meat is cooked through, about 8 - 15 minutes. Uncover, raise the heat to high and cook until the sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes more.

Step 4

Toss the shallots with the sherry vinegar and parsley, and season with salt. Serve the chicken with the dressed shallots and spoon the pan sauce over everything.

I did a half recipe for 2 serves and we both enjoyed with DH requesting next time I do it could I use chicken breast in place if the thighs as he finds them too fatty for his taste though we both thoroughly enjoyed the sauce and the chicken was moist and delicious. Made for For Your Consideration tag game at FF&F.
