Honey Ginger Glazed Chicken

I found some boneless chicken thighs on sale at the grocery store and picked up a few packs.  I stuck them in the freezer, until I could find a recipe to use them in. Then I realized that my friend, and fellow blogger, Ashley (go check out her blog Big Flavors from a Tiny Kitchen) from my Supper Club made this chicken dish for our Asian themed dinner back in March using boneless chicken thighs.  Everyone had enjoyed it so I thought I'd make it for the family.  This dish is really quick and easy to make.  It is also really flavorful!  Even better, the kids loved it too!  I served this with rice and broccoli to complete the meal.  My chicken ended up with more of a sauce than a glaze, as seen in this pic, but it was still really tasty.  We even drizzled it over our rice!
