One-Pan Honey Garlic Chicken

Servings: 4-6

INGREDIENTS

6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

Salt, to taste

Pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

3 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tablespoon brown sugar

¼ cup honey

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 pound green beans

PREPARATION

2. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper.

5. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, honey, thyme, and oregano, and stir. Reduce heat to low.

6. Return chicken to the skillet. Coat the chicken in the sauce.

7. Add green beans to skillet.
