Total Time 40 mins
Course Main Course
Servings 4 - 6


  • 1/4 cup tamari or coconut aminos
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth, preferably organic
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil, plus more for the skillet, if necessary*
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey, preferably local
  • 4-5 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 large green onion, sliced, green part only
  • 1 tbsp white sesame seeds


  • Prepare the sauce by whisking together the tamari, chicken broth, sesame oil, Sriracha sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, and lime juice in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Add the chicken thighs to a large well-seasoned castiron skillet set over medium heat and season generously with salt and black pepper.
    *Tip: If the pan is new or not well-seasoned, add 2 tablespoons of sesame oil to the skillet before adding the chicken.
  • Cook until the chicken releases easily from the skillet, approximately 4-5 minutes. Turn the chicken and pour the sauce into the skillet. Continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes, spooning the pan sauce over the chicken as it cooks.
  • Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, approximately 15-20 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer reads 160°F when inserted into the thickest part of the chicken.
  • Remove from heat and brush the pan sauce over the chicken until nicely coated. Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes before topping with the sliced green onion and sesame seeds. Serve immediately with a drizzle of pan sauce on top and your choice of sides. Enjoy!
