Juicy honey garlic chicken thighs and crispy roast potatoes are seared and baked in the most FLAVORFUL honey garlic sauce in this no-fuss one skillet dinner!
I’m a one skillet dinner’s biggest.freaking.fan, guys. But you probably already knew that because of dinner wins like this caramelized onion chicken wild rice. Or this peanut satay chicken stir-fry.
P.S. Today’s winner winner one-pot-chicken-dinner takes the current crushing prize. These chicken thighs win the whole kit and kaboodle.
Oh, and a quick word about my brand spankin’ new cast iron. First thing I made with it was this chicken and it’s definitely one of my favorite birthday presents from my smart little sister.
Also, my whole family/boyfriend are apparently smart? 95% of the birthday presents I received were kitchen goodies.
The best kinda birthday haul, no question about it.
But this chicken! And all those glorious little roast potatoes! You’re never going to want to eat anything else for dinner ever again.
Prep for this honey garlic chicken is as follows >>>
- Pan-sear the chicken thighs until a luscious golden-brown and throw some onions and a mess of little potato cubes into the skillet to get all roasty-toasty.
- Sauce. Honey garlic sauce gets made right in the same pan and it is to.die.for. Throw your chicken and potatoes back in the pan and nestle em in ALL THE SAUCE. Ensure that every inch is covered.
Into the oven with everything for a little while and your job is basically done.
Note: Boneless thighs will also work with this recipe! Decrease the baking time by 5-8 minutes and bake until chicken registers 165.
Besides demolishing said skillet which we all know is the most crucial job.
The chicken seriously bakes up SO ridiculously moist and tender in the honey garlic sauce and meanwhile the potatoes get crispy and golden to the MAX.
I could eat this for dinner every day tbh, guys.
With extra-extra-EXTRA drenchings of sauce please and thank you. >

Skillet Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs with Roast Potatoes
- 4 medium chicken thighs, patted dry (about 1 lb)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons butter, divided
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 lb russet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-in cubes (about 4 medium potatoes)
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- Preheat oven to 400F. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper to taste. Heat 1 tablespoon butter and olive oil in a 9-inch skillet over medium-high heat until melted and hot. Place chicken thighs skin-side down and sear 2-3 minutes on both sides until golden brown. Remove from skillet and set aside.
- Add onion and potatoes to same skillet and saute several minutes until golden-brown. Season with salt and pepper to taste then remove from skillet and set aside.
- Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter over medium-heat in same skillet, then add garlic to pan and saute 1 minute until garlic is fragrant. Add honey, soy sauce, and vinegar to pan and bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer 5 minutes until slightly thickened.
- Nestle chicken thighs and potato mixture into pan and use a spoon to drizzle some of the sauce over top. Bake chicken at 400F 25-30 minutes or until chicken registers 165F and potatoes are tender. Sprinkle parsley on top. Serve warm and enjoy!
Winner winner chicken dinner! Absolutely delicious! Quick and easy to make, everyone loved it, and the clean-up is simple too! I was multitasking and accidentally added 1/4 cup of vinegar instead of 1 tablespoon so I doubled the honey and soy sauce and it balanced out very nicely. We had plenty of that yummy sauce. It was delicious with roasted asparagus. Highly recommend this one and as for me I will definitely be saving it and making it again. Thank you!
I’m so happy to hear this chicken was a hit, Laura! Sounds amazing pairing it with roasted asparagus. 🙂

I loved this dish, this is an alchemy of flavors everything that is done in an iron skillet is very tasty and the presentation of the dish is beautiful.
Wonderful to hear! Enjoy. 🙂
Oh this looks so yummy! Do you think it’ll be ok if I just use a regular stainless steel pan? I need to get cast iron one of these days but hoping it’ll work in the meantime.
Hi Rory! Stainless steel would work just fine 🙂
