Honey-Glazed Chicken

Jump to Recipe

Honey glazed chicken on the grill for dinner tonight featuring honey bbq sauce.

This Honey Glazed Chicken pairs well with roasted potatoes and grilled brussels sprouts. This recipe was developed by my good friend Karlen Poma. When I visited Karlen in Monterey California we had the most fun in the kitchen. I’m not sure she ever leaves the kitchen, she enjoys cooking so much. This recipe is not difficult to make, it will take about an hour of prep time to prepare this dish. Total prep and cooking time will take an hour and fifteen minutes. If you like the glaze you can substitute your favorite fish with the chicken.

If you want to thicken the glaze, after the chicken marinates, mix 1/4 Cup of the broth from the chicken with 1 tablespoon of corn starch or arrow root until dissolved. Slowly mix the broth in with the glaze as you are heating it up.
