Charred Honey Lemon Chicken with Crispy Chickpeas

Here’s a super easy chicken recipe with ridiculous flavor for meal prep or midweek dinner with the family. Moist and tender, this Charred Honey Lemon Chicken with Crispy Chickpeas is incredibly delicious. The easy rub and basting sauce adds its fabulous flavor!

I enjoyed this chicken with some broccoli and brown rice. A very simple but extremely satisfying meal. It’s easy to prep ahead, comes together quickly, is decently healthy and bursts with bright, fresh, delicious flavor!

Because this recipe calls for boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts, there are no worries of the meat drying out. If you’re a chicken breast fan, I would encourage you to give this recipe a try. It’s pretty crazy how delicious those crispy charred bits are! This is a great meal for entertaining as most it can be prepped ahead. Both the rub and the sauce can be made early in the day (or even a few days ahead), leaving simply the grilling and a quick sauté for the chickpeas.

In addition to the flavorful rub, there’s another layer of deliciousness that’s added with an easy grilling sauce. As the chicken cooks, the honey lemon sauce is brushed on helping create the delicious char. It’s beyond easy to make: simply combine everything in a glass jar and shake, shake, shake!
