Pan-roasted Chicken Thighs with Pineapple Chili Glaze
Pan-roasted chicken thighs are juicy and flavorful and have the most amazing crispy skin. The pineapple chili sauce also deeply flavors the chicken with a spicy-sweet taste. Once you try this recipe, you will be craving this dish all the time. This dish is also perfect for dinner parties since the beautiful golden-brown color of the chicken will impress any guests.
Tips For Making This Amazing Chicken Dish
- You can use a whole chicken and cut it into pieces if you want a variety of light and dark meat. I like to use bone-in chicken thighs since they absorb the flavor more than chicken breasts.
- Make the most of your time and start making the glaze as the chicken is cooking in the oven. You can also make the glaze ahead of time so it is ready to be used.
- The pineapple chili glaze is also excellent for pork chops or marinade for pork shoulder.
