1.5lbsbone-in skin-on chicken thighs(I had 4)
freshly ground black pepper
zest of 1 lime
juice of 1 lime
Sprinkle the chicken all over with salt and pepper. Place them in a nonstick pan skin side down over medium to medium high heat, and cook for 15 minutes. The idea here it to render the fat a little bit and crisp up the skin to a golden brown color. You don’t want the heat to be so high that the chicken skin burns, so keep an eye on it.
In the meantime, whisk together the sriracha, honey, lime zest, and lime juice. Set aside.
Once the chicken skin is golden brown, flip the chicken over and cook for another 10 minutes, until the chicken is almost cooked through (170 degrees F).
Pour the honey mixture into the pan and cook for another few minutes, basting the chicken until the liquid thickens into a glaze, until the chicken reaches 180 degrees F. Serve and enjoy!
