Cast-Iron Sriracha Chicken Thighs with Vegetables

Cast-Iron Sriracha Chicken Thighs with Vegetables

This is a one-skillet Sriracha chicken dish. I like the concept of one-skillet dishes because it cuts down on time and the flavors seem to meld together well.

  1. Step 1

    Whisk honey, soy sauce, Sriracha, lime juice, garlic, and pepper for marinade together in a bowl and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add chicken thighs, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator, turning halfway through, for 2 hours.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. Step 3

    Remove chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.
  4. Step 4

    Melt butter in a large, cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes; this will melt out most of the fat underneath and leave a nice, crispy skin. Flip over and grill for 2 more minutes. Remove chicken to a plate.
  5. Step 5

    Drain extra fat and oil from the skillet. Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter and let melt. Add onion and garlic to the melted butter and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Mix in green beans, potatoes, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Cook, mixing carefully, for 5 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Meanwhile, mix Sriracha, brown sugar, honey, and jalapeno in a small bowl until smooth.
  7. Step 7

    Remove skillet from the heat. Return chicken to the skillet, skin-side up. Pour Sriracha mixture primarily onto the chicken, and a bit onto the vegetables.
  8. Step 8

    Place the skillet in the preheated oven and roast until potatoes are tender and chicken is completely cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  9. Step 9

    Garnish with green onion and serve.
