1 Hr


35 Min


1/4 c
lime juice (or 6 limes)
2 tsp
lime zest
1/2 c
orange juice
1/4 c
soy sauce, low sodium
1/4 c
chicken thighs, skinless, bone-in
1 Tbsp
olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
2/3 c
cup chopped shallots, from 2 shallots
lime wedges, for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
3. Transfer the chicken pieces to a serving platter. Pour the glaze over the chicken and sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon of lime zest. Garnish with lime wedges.
Make the marinade for these chicken thighs ahead of time, and dinner's as easy as tossing them in the oven or on the grill. Serve them with a cool potato salad or pasta salad for a satisfying, no-fuss meal.
