Directions
  1. Season the chicken thighs with garlic powder, cayenne, paprika, ground coriander, and salt and pepper.
  2. Add avocado oil and lime juice and marinate the chicken for 15 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. Sear chicken thighs in a high-heat pan for 3-4 minutes on each side until browned.
  4. Reduce the heat and continue to cook the chicken for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. Transfer cooked chicken to a plate.
  5. To create the maple orange glaze, combine orange juice, maple syrup, brown sugar, white vinegar, soy sauce, garlic powder, arrowroot starch and water in a bowl or measuring cup.
  6. In a pan, cook down minced garlic in a little bit of avocado oil.
  7. Add the orange maple glaze to the heated pan with garlic. Add orange zest and fresh dill. Bring to a boil and simmer on medium heat until thick, for 3-4 minutes.
  8. Add the chicken thighs back to the orange maple glaze and simmer for 1 more minute.
  9. Serve with your sides of choice – we recommend serving it over Jasmine rice with steamed broccoli.
