These honey lemon garlic chicken thighs are delicious and super easy to make! The sauce is what takes this recipe the next level and it only takes about 10 minutes to make. I love dessert but I am not a huge fan of sweet when it comes to regular foods. However, the honey is balanced out with lemon and the garlic in the sauce and I actually love the little bit of sweetness it gives.
