Honey Glazed Chicken

Honey is glorious.

Whether you eat it by the spoonful, drizzle it over cornbread, or pour it in your tea, it’s the perfect amount of sweet to satisfy any craving.  Last summer I discovered that this multi-talented condiment makes a great dressing–especially for chicken.

The best thing about this recipe is its simplicity.  Most, if not all, of the ingredients tend to be common pantry items and are pretty easy to find.

  • ¼ c Honey
  • 1 tbls soy sauce
  • 1 tbls white vinegar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice (or ¼ tsp each of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves)

Pour everything into a bowl and mix well.

Honey Chicken in the Pan

Put this glaze over your favorite type of chicken (I prefer thighs and breasts), pop

’em in the fridge for a few hours, and let the meat soak up the flavor.  The amount of chicken doesn’t matter–this recipe makes enough sauce for four breasts or eight legs.  It all depends on how much sauce you want left over.

Cook the chicken in a pan on medium-high heat until the glaze thickens and the chicken starts to crisp on the outside.  It shouldn’t take long.

Don’t let the sweet ingredients fool you.  You’ll enjoy this savory dish more each time you make it.
