Indulge in the delightful flavors of this Honey Garlic Chicken recipe, striking the perfect harmony between sweet and savory. Versatile enough for both casual weeknight dinners and elegant gatherings, it showcases tender chicken, seared to perfection and bathed in a delectable honey garlic sauce.


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup flour for dusting
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or unsalted butter
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce low sodium preferred
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Optional for garnish: sesame seeds and chopped green onions


Begin by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then lightly coat them with flour.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil or butter. Add the chicken to the skillet and sear until golden brown on both sides, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the minced garlic to the skillet, cooking until fragrant, which should take about 1 minute.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, and apple cider vinegar. Pour this flavorful mixture over the chicken in the skillet.

Allow the sauce to simmer until it thickens slightly and the chicken is fully cooked, which should take around 5 minutes.

Serve the chicken, optionally garnished with sesame seeds and chopped green onions, for an added touch of flavor and visual appeal.


To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute cornstarch for flour and tamari for soy sauce.
For enhanced flavor, marinate the chicken in the honey garlic sauce for 30 minutes to overnight.
Adjust the sauce’s thickness by adding a cornstarch slurry to thicken or water to thin it out.
This versatile recipe can be adapted to include other proteins such as beef, pork, or tofu.
