Juicy and delicious chicken thighs in a honey garlic lime marinade! Make it for your next family dinner- everybody will love it!
In my family everybody has its favorite chicken part. For my husband its chicken breast, wings and drumsticks for kids and usually thighs for me.
Most of the chicken we eat we buy at the local farm. Pasture raised, grass fed and happy chickens- that what makes anychicken dishes taste even better.
Of course we eat Costco chicken too, just not on regular basis.
This recipe needs just a few ingredients, but that fantastic combo creates an outstanding flavor! You can marinade your chicken overnight if you want, but even 1 hour will do the job.
