Honey Glazed Chicken

Summer has arrived.  Did you say we had four warm days? Nevertheless, it's officially summer now and by now the barbecue season should be in full force. I'm going to share with you one of our family's favorite chicken recipes. I always find it interesting how my own kids say, "Mom, why don't you post that honey garlic chicken recipe?" And I'm thinking, 'that recipe is so old...' but we all know that some of those recipes simply take priority on a hot sizzling summer day.

  • One whole roasting fresh chicken or
  • 4 fresh chicken breasts with skin and bone-in, or back attached.
Honey Garlic Sauce
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soya sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  1. Heat butter on low heat, till melted, adding sugar, honey, soya sauce, and garlic.
  2. Bring to a slow boil. Don't overcook because it will caramelize.
  3. Lay the chicken on the grill on low heat.
  4. Baste chicken with sauce frequently, until the crust is a light charcoal color.
  5. Cooking time: (45 minutes for bone-in breasts/ 11/2 hour for rotisserie whole chicken)
  6. Serve with your favorite salad.

I'm sure by now your mouths are watering. Even if it's not a hot sizzling summer day, you can just pretend that it's hot and hold your umbrella in the rain while you enjoy your favorite chicken dish.


  1. Oh yum! That looks amazing. I love when recipes have ingredients that are in everyone's cupboards already. This will be on the menu tonight. And the salad looks great too. Thank you.


  2. Oh my. I have my chickens defrosting right now and I was just going to oven roast them. This looks soooo good. Thank you and I'm sure my family will thank you tonight after supper.

  3. I'm drooling over my keyboard.... yum!

  4. This looks so good, I'll definitely give it a try.
    (Do you have trouble with the sauce burning while it's on the BBQ?)

  5. It will burn abit...but that's why you need to keep the heat on the BBQ low...If you are in a hurry, choose a different sauce or marinade...
    But by keeping the skin on, it helps to keep the meat moist while it cooks.
    It's truly delicious.

  6. This sounds great. Wondering if you could roast this like a beer butt chicken? Maybe I will have to give it a try.

  7. That looks wonderful!
    I thought you'd smile to hear that when I was looking for a cookie recipe this afternoon and googled it, up came MGCC, and Judy's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies - some are in the oven and some are cooling now. :)

  8. OH! This looks so good! Thank You for sharing....

  9. Looks absolutely scrumptious!!! Will have to try it.
    Would have been great today, we had a beautiful balmy day here in MB :) Love it after so much cloud and rain.

  10. ok, this is right up my alley, sounds so good!
