Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 4 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 lb total)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 8 baby Yukon Gold potatoes, halved (about 3/4 lb)
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices (1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F.

    In small bowl, mix 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, the garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper and the ground red pepper. Season chicken with salt mixture.
  • 3
    In 12-inch ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and cook 7 to 8 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Remove skillet from heat, and remove chicken from skillet; drain fat. Add potatoes, carrots, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to skillet; stir to coat.

    In small bowl, mix honey and Sriracha. Set aside 2 tablespoons mixture. Add garlic to remaining honey mixture. Place chicken on top of vegetables, and brush tops with honey-garlic mixture.
  • 5
    Place skillet in oven; roast 20 to 25 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (at least 165°F). Remove chicken; cover and keep warm. Stir vegetables. Place skillet back in oven 10 to 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender and potatoes are lightly browned. Brush reserved 2 tablespoons honey-Sriracha mixture on chicken, and serve.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    When measuring honey, spraying a little cooking spray in the measuring cup or spoon will help the honey slide out easily.
  • tip 2
    Baby red potatoes can be substituted for the Yukon Gold potatoes in this recipe.
