Sweet & Spicy Honey Glazed Chicken

I can’t actually remember where I stumbled across this recipe, but it sounded really good and easy, so I gave it a shot soon after I first found it. The original recipe is made in a crock pot, but the person who posted it online suggested that it could easily be baked in the oven as well. During the week, I’m gone too long to use my crockpot, and I wanted to make this on a week night. So I just poured the sauce over a whole chicken breast and baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes just like I do with BBQ chicken. the sauce is really good and I’m willing to bet you already have all or nearly all of the ingredients in your kitchen. Just a word of warning, this sauce has a definite kick to it. I had no idea how strong 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes would be! It wasn’t too bad, but I think I might decrease the amount of red pepper flakes a bit next time. Keep in mind though, my mouth is super sensitive so I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to spicy foods :p

Sweet & Spicy honey Glazed Chicken

you’ll Need:

3/4 lb chicken of your choice (I only made one breast and just had extra sauce. If you’re making it in the crock pot, see the original recipe)

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/8 cup chopped onion or 1/16 cup onion flakes (I skipped the onion entirely because I didn’t have onion flakes and I was feeling lazy)

1/8 cup ketchup

1 Tbs vegetable oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Brown or white rice (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper and place in an oven safe dish

3. In a bowl, whisk together all ingredients and pour over chicken (I didn’t use all of the sauce, just made sure the chicken was thoroughly covered)

4. Bake chicken for 20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and serve over rice if desired

Note: Sorry for the lack of pictures in my recent posts, I’m totally out of practice!
