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
Dash Pepper
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.
