Honey and Soy Baked Chicken Thighs

Many of you know that I am a recent convert to the dark side. That is what you use in this recipe for honey and soy baked chicken thighs.  I gave chicken thighs a try and now I love them.  The recipe I have shared before have involved boneless skinless chicken thighs, which are great.  I can usually get them for $1.99 a pound on sale which is pretty close to the same price of ground beef.

However, you can usually get the bone in/skin on chicken thighs on sale for 99 cents.  So I wanted to try a recipe that I could take advantage of the skin on version.  Now for those skinless, recipes you can always buy the bone in/skin on version and de-bone and skin yourself, but this busy mom just doesn’t have time for that.

This was another yummy recipe.  I must say with this one the skin is the best part.  It is crispy and full of flavor.  I definitely think, the longer you can marinate this chicken the better!  You could also throw this chicken on the grill instead of baking it.
