Honey-Lemon Chicken

I’ve had a lot of people ask for this recipe! Here it is, its always a HIT!

This recipe comes from a book that I bought when I was in middle school. The first recipe book I ever bought, in fact I sold them for a club I was in to earn money. Its from a book called 5 Ingredients or Less. Right up my alley, not too much work and really EASY! I remember being newly married and trying this recipe and I felt like I was making a homemade gourmet meal, I was new into cooking and it was so yummy for how little effort it took. Needless to say I wow’d the crowd!

Sign me up for all the ‘5 ingredients or less’ or ’30 minutes or less’ type of meals. Some days you just need the quick and easy dinner and this one checks off ll the boxes oof being easy. There are times where I’m just not up for a big meal but don’t necessarily want to order takeout. give this recipe a try and let us know if you like it.

  • I was really excited about making this honey-lemon chicken because it seemed to be something my kids might actually eat (they are 6, 4 and 2 so you know how that goes). Anyways, I baked the chicken the first 30 then poured the mixture over for the last 30 and it just burned onto my baking sheet 🙁 I must have missed the vlog when you made this – did you use a casserole dish or what did I do to mess this up?!?! Please help 🙂 I need a new recipe for chicken to feed my kiddos 🙂 haha

  • Hey Mindy! Thank you for the recipes to refer to as always! I had a question about this one! It didn’t turn out as I wanted it to.. the sauce was very thin so it ended up burning the chicken and the pan. Would you suggest adding corn starch to the sauce to thicken it up for it to be kore of a glaze next time? I just wanted to follow the recipe directly that’s why I sides not to, but it ended up being dry and burnt. Anyways! Would love your feedback! Cheers!

    • Hi! I’m so sorry! you could double the sauce recipe, sometimes I like to do that to make it more saucey!
