How to Prepare Honey Garlic Chicken 

By Eniolá Abdulroqeeb Arówólò

Honey garlic chicken is a delightful and flavourful dish that combines the natural sweetness of honey with the savoury richness of garlic to create a harmonious taste experience. 

The tender chicken breasts are cooked to perfection, then coated in a luscious sauce made from a blend of honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, and minced ginger.  With its simple yet sophisticated flavour profile, honey garlic chicken is sure to become a favourite in your kitchen repertoire.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make honey garlic chicken:

Ingredients you’ll need:

– boneless, skinless chicken breasts

– Salt and pepper to taste

– Honey

– Soy sauce

– Garlic, minced

– Minced fresh ginger

– Olive oil

– Optional: sesame seeds and chopped green onions for garnish


  1. Start by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, and minced ginger to create the honey garlic sauce.
  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the seasoned chicken breasts to the skillet. Cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is fully cooked and has a nice golden-brown color.
  1. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the skillet and set it aside on a plate.
  1. In the same skillet, pour in the prepared honey garlic sauce. Bring it to a simmer over medium heat. Let it cook for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly.
  1. Return the cooked chicken breasts to the skillet, coating them with the honey garlic sauce. Spoon the sauce over the chicken to fully coat it.
  1. Allow the chicken to cook in the sauce for another 2-3 minutes, letting the flavors meld together.
  1. Once the chicken is well-coated and the sauce is thickened, remove the skillet from the heat.
  1. If desired, sprinkle sesame seeds and chopped green onions over the chicken for garnish.
  1. Serve the honey garlic chicken over rice, noodles, or with your preferred side dish. Make sure to drizzle some of the extra sauce from the skillet over the chicken before serving.
  1. Enjoy your delicious homemade honey garlic chicken!

Remember, cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts, so it’s always a good idea to check for doneness by cutting into the thickest part of the chicken to ensure it’s cooked through.
