Honey-Garlic-Glazed-Chicken-Leg-Quarter-RecipeThis Honey Garlic Glazed Chicken is so easy to prepare. I use one of my favorite tools in the kitchen a Cast-iron Pan. What I love about a cast iron is the ability you have to go from the stovetop to the oven. They are so versatile that you can cook one or two juicy steaks and even a whole chicken. And the best part, it’s very inexpensive and it holds heat even better than a regular stain steel pan. So I invite you to grab your cast iron and let’s cook!

Next, place the cast iron on the stovetop over medium-high heat let it get really hot for about 2 to 3 minutes. Place the chicken pieces on the cast iron and sear it on both sides. This will ensure a very crispy and juicy chicken. Then, transfer the cast iron into the oven. Let the chicken cook for about 20 minutes.
