Grilled Honey Glazed Chicken Recipe

honey glazed chicken recipe

Grilling and searing are my two favorite ways to cook chicken. This Grilled Honey Glazed Chicken Recipe consists of simple ingredients that you can find right out of your pantry.  It’s affordable, easy to make and delicious. This recipe is quite similar to chicken teriyaki, but is less sweet and lighter in its all-around flavor. I prefer to use boneless chicken thighs for this recipe because chicken breasts are susceptible to drying out.  If you do prefer to use chicken breasts, start by pounding chicken breast to a half-inch in thickness. Do not overcook chicken breasts, as the meat can become dry very fast.honey glazed chicken recipe
