Delicious Honey Glazed Baked Chicken

by Alli

Chicken is a staple at my house. During the summer, we usually grill it. I also have several slow cooker recipes that I make often. Once it cools down, Honey Glazed Baked Chicken is a huge favorite.

Honey Glazed Baked Chicken Recipe

When the kids were growing up, I made this chicken often, especially during the fall and winter. It’s a great dish to prepare on a weeknight. It’s also perfect if you have company coming over.

My Honey Glazed Baked Chicken cooks for a while in the oven, so I rarely make it during the summer. It’s just too hot here in South Carolina to have the oven on for that long on a summer day. This is definitely a fall and winter dish.

Honey Glazed Baked Chicken is perfect on a cold winter day. And I can’t begin to describe the amazing aroma.  The smell coming from the oven while this chicken is baking will make you so hungry!

My family also thinks this chicken is amazing. It’s tender, flavorful and crispy. I hope you like it too!

Spiced Carrots

I like to serve spiced carrots alongside this chicken. You’ll need:

  • 5 large carrots, julienned
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Julienne five large carrots. Place carrots in a saucepan, cover with water and cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Drain. Combine butter, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Pour over carrots and toss to coat.

If you’re looking for a new chicken recipe, this one is a winner. Try it and let me know what you think.
