This is a really quick and easy sweet & sticky Paleo baked chicken thighs. It’s much healthier than using a bottle of store bought BBQ sauce. The chicken recipe I have for you today is a Sweet & Sticky Paleo baked chicken thighs. I hope that you enjoy my new recipe.
My all-time, go-to easy chicken dinner used to be something my kids called “sticky chicken”. I used to just take a bottle of bbq sauce and that cheap maple syrup (that’s probably just made of high fructose corn syrup), mix them together, pour over the chicken and bake. It’s really good but is probably made of little more than high fructose corn syrup, so…not too great for you.
I thought that if you were looking for quick baked BBQ Chicken Thighs recipes, this would be a good one to do. So I made it completely healthy with a very quick made-from-scratch bbq sauce and real maple syrup. It’s still super-easy and really just involves taking 5 minutes to make the sauce, pour over the chicken and bake. You will love how the sauce thickens up and gets sticky with a nice, roasted flavor and the chicken gets tender from all the time in the oven.
I love meals like this because I can throw it all in the oven and then do something while dinner is cooking, like clean, help with homework, do the laundry, make breakfast and/or dinner for the next day. You get the idea. Heck, if you’re one of those lucky people with a shorter to-do list than mine, you could relax while dinner cooks. I haven’t tried this in the crock pot, but I bet it would be SO good.
