Mince chipotle peppers.

Chop Chipotles


Combine the minced chipotle peppers with honey, lime juice,  garlic,  cooking oil, and salt.

Make Marinade


Place boneless, skinless chicken thighs in a shallow dish, then pour the honey chipotle marinade over top.

Pour Over Chicken


Toss the chicken in the marinade until they’re evenly coated. Marinate the chicken for a minimum of 30 minutes, up to one day. If marinating longer than one hour, make sure to cover and transfer the chicken to the refrigerator.

Let Chicken Marinate


When you’re ready to cook the chicken, heat a large skillet over medium. Once hot, add the remaining cooking oil and swirl to coat the surface. Add the chicken thighs and cook over medium until all of the water they release evaporates, the marinade has reduced to a glaze, and the chicken has browned on the bottom.

Heat Skillet


Flip the chicken thighs and cook until browned on the other side and cooked through. Flip the chicken back and forth as needed to achieve an even level of browning on both sides. Top with sliced green onions, then serve.
