Citrus Honey Thyme Chicken

Roasted chicken and vegetables garnished with lemon in a sheet pan and served on a plate with a Nate’s honey bottle.
With three flavors that scream “light, fresh & flavorful,” this mouthwatering chicken is as non-boring as lean protein comes. It’s dazzling enough to serve to guests for a dinner gathering, and simple enough to prepare for weeknight family dinners.

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, toss the chicken and olive oil. Then, generously sprinkle with salt and pepper and set aside.

On a large sheet pan, place the potatoes, carrots, onion and garlic. Make the Honey Citrus Sauce (recipe below). Pour half of the Honey Citrus Sauce over the vegetables and place chicken on top. Pour remaining sauce over the chicken. Cover with foil and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

Remove the foil, turn the heat up to 400°F and continue baking for 10 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown and the potatoes are fork tender. Top with fresh chopped parsley and serve hot.

Honey Citrus Sauce

In a microwave-safe measuring cup, add the butter, salt, honey and juice from the lemon and orange, and microwave for 30 seconds or until butter is melted. Stir in the thyme and taste, add salt if needed.
