Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a bowl, toss the chicken with garlic, salt, pepper, orange zest, and half the lemon zest. Rub seasoning all over the chicken.
  3. In a 9x13 baking dish, whisk together the soy sauce, honey and lemon juice until the honey dissolves.
  4. Lay the chicken in the marinade then flip over after 5 minutes and allow to sit for another 5 minutes.
  5. Place in the oven and cook for 25 minutes, or until no longer pink.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
