Finally! Here’s the recipe for this sweet and spicy crispy goodness. The chicken has the perfect balance of sweet and savory flavors and crispy edges to mimic the texture of fried chicken.


I used deboned and skinned chicken thighs which made it easier to eat, but you can also use regular chicken thighs, especially if you want the extra crunch by leaving the skin on. I actually made these for a family dinner and the reviews were amazing! So I had to share.

Recipe: modified from Damn Delicious

6 deboned and skinned chicken thighs
2 tbsp grass fed butter
1 tbsp Flavor God garlic lovers seasoning (or 3 gloves of garlic, minced)
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
3.5 tbsp coconut palm sugar or sucanat + 1 tbsp organic honey
¼ tsp dried basil
2 tbsp fresh parsley leaves, chopped

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Season chicken thighs with salt, pepper, and garlic seasoning.

Melt the butter in an oven proof skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side, then remove from heat and transfer the chicken into a bowl.

Stir in sugar, honey, and basil until well combined, and then return the chicken into the skillet.

Place skillet in the oven and roast until completely cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.

When ready, serve with chopped parsley and lime.
