Honey-Glazed Chicken with Almond Rice

Chicken thighs are maybe the best cut of chicken. They’re flavorful almost any way you cook them. This time, we’ve roasted them in the oven, topped with a delicious honey, garlic, and lemon glaze. As a side, we went for something easy: simple crunchy rice, topped with a few roasted almonds.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
