Honey BBQ Skillet Chicken Thighs

Honey BBQ Skillet Chicken

It’s January and I have some big goals to save money this year for some very special projects and of course, our future. Obviously with a large family we eat quite a bit. And the cost of food can add up. I am determined this year to develop new recipes with that are not only delicious, but easy, and FRUGAL! Hence this recipe…Honey BBQ Skillet Chicken Thighs.

Honey BBQ Skillet Chicken-1


Chicken thighs are a favorite in our house. I often find them for $.88 in our grocery store and stock up. Buying chicken thighs with the bone and skin on is much cheaper than boneless, skinless. It really doesn’t take much to pull the skin off. And there are quite a few tutorials on Pinterest on de-boning chicken thighs that are quick and easy to follow. 

Honey BBQ Skillet Chicken-2

This is the perfect opportunity to break out your Cast Iron Skillet! If you don’t have one… You NEED one! I love mine. And I am actually considering a second as we usually have a full house of people to feed and one is just not cutting it anymore. There is something about a cast iron skillet that gives you the perfectly browned meat that you were aiming for.

Honey BBQ Skillet Chicken-4

Of course, since it is January, it’s cold here in Michigan. And I am not going to ask my hubby to go outside and turn on the grill when I get the craving for BBQ. (although we have done a crazy amount of grilling even in the bitter cold) This skillet chicken is moist and flavorful. The sauce is thick and hearty (perfect for winter). Serve it up with a nice helping of mashed-taters and a slice of cornbread! The perfect solution to your BBQ craving!

    Hmm, I don’t have a skillet that I can put in the oven. Will it change the flavour of the recipe if I put the chicken in a roasting pan or a casserole dish?

      You could totally transfer the chicken to a roasting pan or casserole dish after browning the chicken. The key is to caramelize the sauce in the oven while cooking!

    I got distracted and had to go pin this and make sure we had the ingredients! We have most of them! Yum. I love skillet meals, and the flavors here seem out of this world.

    I am craving these now. It is very cold here finally after a strange winter thus far and this recipe sounds like it would hit the spot tonight. I am sharing it with my spouse.

    Your chicken looks sooo good! I can’t wait to try your recipe! Just hope the honey doesn’t burn on mine, every time I use honey on recipes, it burns….

      Since the honey is combined in the sauce it shouldn’t burn. It really made the chicken caramelize nicely.

    We LOVE chicken thighs, and if I didn’t already have ground beef thawing, we would be having this for supper! Even though we can grill any time of the year, this looks different than the average bbq chicken! Can’t wait to try, thanks for sharing! =)
