Cooking Tools
Large oven proof skillet with lid

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Preheat a large skillet on medium high heat.  Salt and pepper all sides of chicken.  Add in just enough olive oil into the skillet to coat the bottom of the skillet, and sear chicken pieces fat side down.  Sear and brown the chicken for about 5 minutes before attempting to flip over, if the chicken skin sticks to your pan, wait another few minutes to turn them over. Add in the quartered onions and garlic slices around the chicken. Sprinkle the chopped cilantro around the chicken and lay citrus slices on top of the seared chicken.  Pour 1 cup of honey all over the chicken.  Place lid on the skillet and place in the oven to bake for 1 hour, 30 minutes. For the last 30 minutes, remove lid from skillet to brown the chicken. Serve with white rice or potatoes.  Pour honey sauce on top of chicken and garnish with minced chives and the citrus slices.
