Honey Glazed Chicken

In the spirit of World Bee Day, indulge in this honey chicken recipe from BBC Good Food. This honey recipe combines the succulent juiciness of chicken with a glaze of golden honey, infusing each bite with a perfect balance of sweetness and savoury notes. 

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4


  • 4 chicken breasts (about 600g), trimmed and cut into 2-3 cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 40g piece of ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 6 tbsp soy sauce
  • 5 tbsp honey
  • ½-1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbsp sunflower, vegetable, rice bran or rapeseed oil
  • cooked rice and steamed broccoli, to serve (optional)


Step 1: Add the chicken to a bowl, sprinkle over the flour and add some seasoning then toss until the chicken is evenly coated. 

Step 2: Combine the ginger, garlic, soy, honey as well as half the lemon juice in a bowl. Then, heat over a high heat, place the chicken into a large frying pan or wok and fry for 3-4 minutes or until lightly golden. 

Step 3: Next, pour in the honey sauce and stir fry until the chicken is fully cooked and the sauce has reduced, which takes approximately 10 minutes. 

Step 4: Once cooked, if needed squeeze over the remaining lemon juice and serve with rice and steamed broccoli.
