Your mind is going to be blown by how easy it is to make this sweet, sticky, and totally delectable chicken! Ready in only 15 minutes with an incredible 3 ingredient sauce!

This 15 Minute Honey Chicken was inspired by my Sweet & Spicy Chicken Bites. Both recipes include a crazy simple sticky sauce; however, this one has no heat so it’s really very family friendly!

My husband, son, and even my five year old daughter (who excels at finding something wrong with every meal ever placed in front of her) all love this chicken! And I mean it. They raved! Who doesn’t need a rave-worthy chicken recipe in their life?!

Y’all. THIS SAUCE. I didn’t want to complicate things and I didn’t. It’s absolute perfection with only 3 ingredients: honey, coconut aminos, and minced garlic.

While the chicken is sautéing, stir together the sauce ingredients. Once the chicken is finished pour that sauce in the pan. You’re going to let it simmer and bubble for about 5 minutes. When I say you’re going to see bubbles that’s what I mean. If you’re not seeing the bubbles the heat is too low. This is going to finish cooking the chicken and thicken the sauce a bit. And then you’re done!

Serve this delicious entree with your favorite savory sides like my Spicy Roasted Broccoli, Garlic Green Beans, or Roasted Parsley Carrots.

15 Minute Honey Chicken

Your mind is going to be blown by how easy it is to make this sweet, sticky, and totally delectable chicken! Ready in only 15 minutes with an incredible 3 ingredient sauce!

Ingredients

Chicken

  • 2 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 4 chicken breasts, about 2 lbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Honey Sauce

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic

Instructions

  • Slice the chicken breasts horizontally. This will give you 8 thin cutlets so they'll cook faster and more evenly.
  • Add olive oil to saute pan or cast iron skillet. Heat pan to medium high heat. Add your cutlets to the hot pan. Liberally salt and pepper the side facing up. Sauté until each side has some browning and chicken is mostly cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Meanwhile, stir together coconut aminos, honey, and minced garlic in a medium bowl.
  • Pour sauce into skillet with chicken. Let it all simmer (sauce will be very bubbly) on medium-high heat for 5 minutes, flipping chicken halfway through cooking time. When finished, sauce will have thickened and chicken should be completely cooked through. Turn off heat and let it sit for a minute so bubbles go away. Spoon sauce over chicken.

Notes

Nutrition information is for 1 cutlet plus sauce. That is 1/2 a chicken breast because we’ve cut the breasts horizontally to create 2 cutlets from every chicken breast.
