These healthy honey garlic chicken thighs are paleo, gluten free, dairy free and nut free.  Great for an easy weeknight dinner!




  1. Set a frying pan on the stove top and pour avocado oil in the pan.  Preheat on medium heat.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the chicken thighs and tapioca starch. Mix until they're well coated.
  3. Place the chicken thighs on the preheated, oiled frying pan. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 10 minutes on medium heat.
  4. After 10 minutes, remove the lid and flip all of the thighs. Cook the chicken thighs (uncovered) for 10 more minutes, or until cooked through.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, pressed garlic, honey, sriracha, salt and chili flakes.
  6. Once the chicken thighs are cooked through, pour the sauce over the thighs. Continue cooking on medium heat, flipping the thighs every so often, until the sauce thickens.
