Finger Lickin’ Good is a phrase that means a whole lot of deliciousness awaits you. Yes, this chicken is messy. Yes, you will rudely lick your fingers when eating it. Yes, it’s worth all that.
I am a huge fan of chicken thighs. I always go for the dark meat on the platter, because it just is more moist and more flavorful than white meat. And chicken thighs cost about 50 cents each when you can find them on special. So I love, love, LOVE to buy them and stash them in my freezer. They are just so versatile, too.
We have made them with a Honey Balsamic One Pot Chicken and Veggies, a Peach Soy Maple Glaze, and of course my old standby Maple Molasses and Mustard Glazed Chicken. Chicken thighs are a blank canvas to paint with flavors!
You could try these on the grill and just brush with the glaze toward the end of cooking time, if you like, now that grilling season is here.
Either way – oven or grill – I say ditch the napkins and lick your fingers to get all of this glaze; the flavors are astonishingly good! …
