Honey-Glazed Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by WorkingMom2three

I received this recipe as a shower gift - my co-workers collected recipes and gave me them in a recipe box (that I still have 20 years later). This recipe quickly became a staple in my "30 minutes or less to supper" list. DH loves it - he calls it "candy chicken". The kids like it too.

very good-my boyfriend LOVED this and he wants me to make it again. next time a am going to add a bit of cayenne..I used thin cutlets ( each about 3/4 inch thick. I followed the directions but I needed to cook the cutlets about an addition 5 minutes for ( I use a thermometer-chicken must be 165 degrees+). The sauce carmelized nicely. Thanks working mom!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the honey, soy sauce, lemon, oil, and ginger in a bowl and "melt" in microwave for ~1 minute.
  2. Put flour, garlic powder, and salt & pepper in plastic bag and add chicken. Shake to coat chicken w/flour mixture.
  3. Take a baking dish just big enough for the chicken, coat with cooking spray. Add chicken and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
  4. Add the glaze to the chicken and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Turn chicken in glaze and cook for another 5 minutes. Serve.
  6. Cooking times may need to be longer if you have a really big, thick, breast. I use the Perdue frozen tenders (defrosted) so that they will cook evenly. I have used the equivalent of 2 chicken breasts for the same amount of glaze, but this doubles easily.
