It’s been a while since I posted a dinner recipe. I’ve been lucky and hubby has been doing most of the cooking. Track season is starting soon (hubby coaches middle school track) so I’ll be back trying out new recipes. I gotta keep adding to my stash!
I found this recipe in Taste of Home’s The Busy Family Cookbook. It’s really tasty. Even G, my picky eater, ate all of his chicken without a fuss. Citrus, honey and garlic – what’s not to like? I love how quickly this dish is ready for the table.
Honey Garlic Chicken
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 oz each)
2 Tbsp Honey
2 Tbsp Orange Juice or Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 to 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place chicken in a greased 13x9x2 baking pan. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour over chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Broil 4-6 inches from the heat for 5-7 minutes or until juices run clear, brushing occasionally with sauce.
I needed 5 pieces of chicken, so I increased the honey and orange juice to 3 tbsp and the vegetable oil to 1 1/2 tbsp. I also used 4 cloves of garlic – I love garlic! I like to season the chicken before anything else goes on it, so I sprinkled a little salt and pepper on each side before pouring the sauce on top.
