Sugar Chicken

Ingredients

  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons margarine, divided
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
