Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken thighs boneless, skinless
  • 1 ounce soy sauce
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce honey
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 pinch ground ginger
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat skillet to medium high and coat with olive oil. Once skillet is hot, add chicken thighs to sear. Do not crowd them (they won't stay dry enough to get a dry sear). Don't move them until you get the sear. Cook on both sides, about 3-4 minutes each.
  • Once almost cooked through, pour into your skillet a mixture of soy sauce, pineapple juice, honey, garlic and a pinch of ground ginger.
  • Let chicken cook in sauce until sauce reduces by half, 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and serve with pineapple and broccoli.
