- 6 Chicken thighs (skin on and bone in)
- 2 Cups Orange juice (Freshly squeezed)
- 1 Teaspoon Orange zest
- 1 Teaspoon Red pepper flake
- 1 Teaspoon Thyme
- 1/4 Cup Honey
- 1 Teaspoon Onion powder
- 1 Teaspoon Garlic powder
- 2 Tablespoons Vegetable oil (your choice)
- Knorr bouillon powder/cube
- Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Clean the chicken and season with knorr, onion powder. garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly to coat the chickens. Set aside.
Place a saucepan/pot over medium heat. Add the orange juice, thyme, honey, orange zest, salt, and pepper. Whisk and bring to a boil then reduce the heat to allow the mixture to simmer until it thickens slightly.
Place a large skillet (oven proof) over medium-high heat, add the oil and when it's slightly hot place the chickens (skin side down), don't overcrowd you can do it in batches.
Brown for about 5 minutes, Flip the chickens and pour/brush the orange glaze over the chicken. If you have more glaze than needed you can pour everything over the chicken or save it and drizzle over salad if you're pairing the chicken with salad.
When you're done with the glazing, transfer the skillet to the oven and roast the chicken for about 35-40 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F or until the juices run clear and fully cooked.
When the chicken is done serve with your favorite side.
The oven temperature might be slightly different, it might take slightly longer or faster.
