Sometimes, the most rewarding recipes are also the easiest to whip together, and this honey garlic chicken dish is sweet and savory proof. The full recipe by Cafe Delights provides all the measurements and steps for flawlessly flavored chicken.

Ingredients On-Hand

Aside from the mouthwatering aroma and heavenly flavor, the surprising appeal of this recipe is how easy it can be on your grocery budget. Many of the ingredients might already be in your pantry, making this the perfect exercise in shelf cooking. In addition to the chicken, you’ll need honey, vinegar, garlic, soy sauce, plus your preferred seasonings like salt, pepper, and garlic powder. A little water or chicken broth will add body to the sauce as well. This recipe works well with both light meat and dark meat, with unique instructions for breast fillets and bone-in thighs.

Multiple Methods

To begin, season the chicken and let it rest while bringing a pan up to medium heat on the stovetop. When the pan is ready, add the chicken to give it a good sear on both sides. From this point, you have several ways to finish the chicken based on the cuts you chose as well as your preferences. If you’re using chicken breasts, you can continue cooking them on the stovetop until they’re done. If you’re cooking bone-in cuts like thighs, you can lower the heat, then cover the pan, checking every five minutes to turn the chicken over. If you’d rather finish the bone-in chicken in the oven, preheat it to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, then cook them until tender and fully done.

The Sauce

Whenever the chicken has been fully cooked, set the pan on the stovetop and add around six cloves of garlic. Let them cook for about half a minute, then pour in your water (or stock) along with the vinegar, soy sauce, and honey. Raise the heat to medium-high and let the mixture reduce and thicken for up to four minutes. When the sauce is ready, plate the chicken and garnish it with fresh parsley.
