Your entire family will love this meal! And you will love it because it is easy to make and has the most incredible lemon garlic honey glaze. Simple, minimal ingredients, and big on flavor. That is how we like ’em!

The chicken gets cooked in butter on the skillet infusing delicious flavor and making the chicken tender and juicy. And then the glaze that goes on top is incredible.

A little bit of tang from the lemon, plus the sweet honey, and garlic all come together to add big flavor to this simple meal.

The sauce is the main thing which plays the major role here, without sauce it’s just like a fried chicken recipe or baked chicken breast.

So how to make it? First of all, you need a good quality natural honey which will give you that thickness and consistency. Second of all, you need soy sauce (Low sodium) and fresh garlic (as the recipe says). See the steps below in the recipe card.
