Honey Glazed Chicken

Honey Glazed Chicken
(adapted from

  • 2 lbs of diced uncooked chicken breast (I used 2 breasts; next time I'll use 3)
  • 1/3 cup flour (or as much needed to coat chicken pieces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 T butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 T lemon juice
  • 3 T soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  1. Heat oven to 350. In a big ziploc bag combine the flour and seasonings. Throw the chicken pieces in the flour mixture and shake to coat.
  2. Melt 2 T. butter and pour on cookie sheet or baking dish and place chicken pieces in a single layer. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes (or until cooked through) at 350 degrees.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt remaining butter and add honey, lemon juice, soy sauce and ginger. If you need more sauce, increase the honey, soy sauce, and butter.
  4. Add cooked chicken pieces gently into the pan with the sauce. Heat through and serve with rice and your choice of steamed veggies.
We liked this! The kids did, too. It was sweet and not spicy at all, which the kids were happy about. I like the idea of more sauce, but I understand why that doesn't work so well with this recipe. It's because the honey makes the chicken sweet enough on its own that it would be overkill to have excess honey-sauce.
