We are all about great easy workday dinners here at Rock Recipes and this honey & soy glazed chicken is a perfect example.
I’ve used bone in chicken breasts here but you can use any chicken parts you like. I often break down a whole chicken for recipes like these.
It takes just a few minutes to prepare a 5 ingredient marinade in the morning or the previous evening to have this chicken ready to pop into the oven when you arrive home from work.
Only about 45 minutes open roasting time is all these golden sticky chicken chicken breasts need; more than enough time to throw together a great salad, steam rice or prepare your favourite noodles.
If serving with noodles or rice, I recommend doubling the marinade/sauce recipe.

Honey Soy Chicken Breasts - one of the most popular chicken dishes ever on Rock Recipes, these breasts bake up to shiny, deliciously honey soy glazed perfection.
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger root
- 24 ounces chicken breast
- Stir together all the ingredients except the chicken breasts and pour into a large Ziploc bag.
- Add the chicken breasts and marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
- Place the marinaded chicken breasts on an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees F, uncovered, for about 45 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. I use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature is between 170 and 180 degrees F.
- Do not throw out the marinade. While the chicken is cooking simmer it over low heat and brush it on the chicken about every 10 minutes as it cooks.
The total prep time reflects the marinating time as well. The cook time will vary from 45-60 minutes depending on the actual size of your chicken breasts,. Use a meat thermometer to be sure they are completely cooked.
