Ingredients
1½ tablespoons olive oil
8 3-ounce skinless, boneless chicken thighs
¾ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup thinly sliced shallots
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon local honey
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
Preparation
  1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil, swirling to coat the bottom. Add the chicken to the skilled and cook 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the meat is browned and cooked through. Transfer cooked chicken to a platter and cover to keep warm.
  3. Add shallots to the same skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Stir and cook shallots for 2 minutes, until they just begin to brown and soften. Add water, lemon juice, and honey to the pan and bring gently to a boil. Cook for 1 minute, scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen up any browned chicken or shallots that may have stuck.
  4. Return warm chicken to the skillet and turn it to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle with oregano and serve.
