  • Yield:

    4 Servings

  • Course:



For the Rice:

1 teaspoon butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup basmati rice
1 3/4 cups low sodium chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Zest of 1 lime
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped

For the Chicken Thighs:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup fresh lime juice, (1-2 limes depending on the size)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Scallions, for garnish


  1. For the Rice: Melt butter over medium heat in Farberware Easy Clean Pro 2-Qt Saucepan. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add rice, chicken stock and salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes, covered. Remove from heat and leave rice covered for 5 minutes. *Please read instructions on the basmati rice. Different varieties require different cooking times.
  2. Add 2-3 tablespoons of lime juice, zest and cilantro, and fluff the rice with a fork. Taste rice and adjust seasoning to taste.
  3. For the Chicken Thighs: Heat olive oil in a Farberware Easy Clean Pro 11-Inch Skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper, and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  4. Add butter and garlic to the pan and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add honey, lime juice and soy sauce, whisking to combine. Allow sauce to simmer for 4-5 minutes, until it starts to thicken. Add chicken back to the pan and cook an additional 1-2 minutes, turning the chicken a few times so it has a chance to soak up the sauce. Serve chicken over rice and garnish with scallions.
