You can use chicken breasts, chicken thighs, drumsticks, or even wings. Any and all work perfectly and taste amazing. You can choose to use boneless, skinless chicken or go with bone-in, skin-on pieces. Whatever suits you works great.

Ready in 30 minutes, this is one recipe that I turn to time and again that never disappoints. Flavorful and delicious, I can depend on it being one that my whole family enjoys.

As quick and easy as it is to mix up and make, I also love to mix up the honey soy mixture and pour half of it over my chicken to let it marinate throughout the day before cooking. Then, as it cooks, I use the remainder of the honey soy mixture on my chicken. While this is delicious, it isn’t absolutely necessary. The honey soy mixture imparts so much flavor while the chicken cooks!

  1. Made this for Super Bowl. Did not turn out like your picture. Needed less soy sauce to be thicker marinade on chicken, or something 🙁

  2. I made these tonight. I already sucked down two thighs and am about to serve them to my husband. Usually I care what he thinks, but not tonight. If he doesn’t LOVE these he is nuts! WOW, awesome!

  3. And…drum roll please! His feedback, “the chicken is good!” Trust me, that’s HUGE! Yippee, thanks so much for the recipe!

  4. I repeat VERY FEW recipes. Just because well, there are so many out there, why?!! I can only think of maybe 6 main dishes I ever repeat….and this is now one of them. I crave it!!! SO GOOD!

  5. I had planned to do pork chops when this came in so decided to go ahead anyway with pork instead of chicken. Worked fine but as another commented, pity sauce is so thin?

    1. Hi Valerie –
      I’ve found that the leaner the meat, the thicker the sauce. The fattier the meat, the more it thins down the sauce. Not sure if that is the case with your pork chops, but could be. Thanks!

  6. I made this tonite. Realized I did not have a skillet that could go in the oven (rubber handles) so I just left it on the stove to cook for about 30 min. After about 20 min the sauce thickened and it was delicious.
