Total Time 35 minutes
- 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- Kosher or Sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Zest of 1/2 orange
- Zest and juice of 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 2 large heads broccoli
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- more sea salt or Kosher salt to taste
Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a bowl, toss the chicken with garlic, salt, pepper, orange zest, and half the lemon zest. Rub seasoning all over the chicken.
In a 9x13 baking dish, whisk together the soy sauce, honey and lemon juice until the honey dissolves.
Lay the chicken in the marinade then flip over after 5 minutes and allow to sit for another 5 minutes.
Place in the oven and cook for 25 minutes, or until no longer pink.
Meanwhile, toss broccoli with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place in a microwave safe bowl and cover tightly with two layers of plastic wrap.
Microwave on high until broccoli is tender but still has some crunch (approximately 3 minutes). Transfer broccoli to a serving platter and top with remaining lemon zest. Top with cooked chicken and serve.
