  • 6 bone in chicken thighs with skin
  • 3-4 Tablespoons oil
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 Tablespoons hot sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce


  • In a gallon-sized zip-top bag, add ketchup, honey, garlic, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Add chicken. Mix well, making sure to coat the chicken. Place into the refrigerator for 6-8 hours or overnight. Flip the bag every few hours to ensure all pieces of chicken are coated.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add oil to a large cast-iron skillet or a heavy ovenproof skillet on medium heat. Add enough oil to cover the bottom of the skillet. Let oil heat slightly.
  • Add chicken and sear on all sides. Reserve the marinade. You are not cooking the chicken completely, just searing.
  • Pour the reserved marinade into the skillet and place the skillet into the oven. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes -depending on the size of your chicken pieces you may need to adjust the time.
