  • 8 medium skinless chicken thighs or drumsticks or combo
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine or chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • zest & juice of 1/2 large lemon
  • salt & pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place sliced onion in the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baker--spread the onions out evenly. Add wine or stock.
  • Place chicken parts on top of onions in pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Mix honey, lemon zest and lemon juice. Brush the chicken parts with some of the honey/lemon mixture.

  • If you desire a bit of crispness, pop chicken under broiler for about 3-5 minutes (I did this).
