  • In a medium bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients. Set aside
  • Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
  • Mix Rub Ingredients together in a small bowl and rub all over chicken.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large oven proof skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and sear 2-3 minutes per side or until browned. Remove chicken to plate.

*I prefer thighs because they are oh so tender but you may substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts but make sure they are pounded THIN. Adjust baking time accordingly.
**I use 3 tablespoons then sprinkle a little brown sugar on the top after baking - so good!
