Tender and juicy Chicken Thighs smothered with a flavorful sweet, spicy and smoky sauce, These Honey Chipotle Chicken Thighs are wonderfully easy and delicious!


  • 1 lb boneless and skinless chicken thighs
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • olive oil


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup chipotle peppers( canned)


  1. In a shallow dish, combine salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and flour. Add the chicken and toss everything around to fully coat with the seasonings. Let this stand for 10 minutes.
  2. In a wide pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Cook the chicken in batches as needed, until it is nicely golden and a bit caramelized, and a thermometer inserted at the thickest part reads 165 F. Set aside and keep warm.
  3. Using a food processor or chopper, puree the chipotle peppers until a thick paste is formed. If you do not have a food processor, simply minced the peppers.
  4. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add garlic and cook until soft and aromatic but not browned. Lower the heat and stir in the honey well. Immediately add the chipotle peppers and stir everything to combine.
  5. Add the cooked chicken to the saucepan and cook for a few minutes, until the chicken is well coated with the sauce. Turn off the heat and serve.
