1. In a small bowl, whisk the lime juice and 1 teaspoon of the lime zest together with the orange juice, soy sauce and honey. Transfer mixture to a Ziploc® Brand Storage Bag with the Smart Zip™ Seal and add the chicken thighs. Let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for one hour.

2.Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat the oil in a large, oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving marinade. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken pieces in the skillet and cook for about 6 minutes, turning once. Remove the thighs and set aside. Add the shallots to the pan and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, until softened. Add the reserved marinade and bring to a boil. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the liquid begins to get a bit syrupy. Add the chicken pieces and transfer the pan to the oven. Cook for 20 minutes, turning the pieces once.
