honey balsamic chicken

If you love honey, then you’re going to love this delicious, easy honey balsamic chicken. It’s sweet, delicious and goes absolutely fabulous with a side of roasted vegetables.

This dish is best to serve with some vegetables that can be either cooked with the chicken or separately. Depending on the size of your pan it’s usually best to cook them separately. I usually do a roast vegetable mix that typically consists of potatoes, onion, bell pepper and sometimes green beans. Even just some sweet potato fries will work pretty well with this dish.

I mention in the cooking tips below how you can do this in the oven rather than in the frypan. The results will differ, but it will make it a bit easier to throw together and get cooking quickly. You can still thicken the sauce at the end just like in the frypan.

You can keep any leftovers for later, simply keep them covered in the fridge. The chicken is excellent sliced for sandwich meat the next day, or you can just reheat it as is. One thing for sure is that you shouldn’t throw out the leftovers as they’re still delicious the next day.

Cooking Tips:

  • If you have the time, then marinating the chicken in the sauce will help increase the amount of flavor in the chicken. Personally, I would marinate it overnight if you have the time but a few hours should be more than enough.
  • You can thicken the sauce up with some cornstarch if you prefer a thicker sauce. Just mix the cornstarch with some water before adding it to the sauce. One tablespoon of cornstarch should be more than enough.
  • If you prefer to use the oven, then this can be done by placing all the ingredients in a casserole dish and baking for 30-45 minutes.
  • This dish can also be cooked in the slow cooker if you want to get it cooking early in the morning.
