Some easy honey chicken recipes include the recipe for baked sticky honey chicken on FoodNetwork.com and the recipe for spicy honey-brushed chicken thighs on MyRecipes.com. Both recipes involve cooking the chicken in the oven.
To prepare the baked sticky honey chicken, chop a 3-pound chicken into 10 pieces, and season the chicken with salt and black pepper. Whisk together 1/4 cup of honey, 1/4 cup of Dijon mustard, 1/2 stick of melted butter and the juice of 1 lemon. Coat the chicken with the honey mixture and position the pieces skin-side up on a lined and greased baking sheet. Bake the chicken at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 40 minutes or until the meat is cooked through.
To make the spicy honey-brushed chicken thighs, combine 2 teaspoons each of garlic powder and chili powder, 1 teaspoon each of ground cumin, paprika and salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of ground red pepper. Coat 8 boneless chicken thighs with the spice mixture, and then position the pieces of chicken on a greased broiler pan. Broil the chicken for 10 minutes, flipping them over once halfway through the cooking process.
Mix 6 tablespoons of honey with 2 teaspoons of cider vinegar in a bowl, and apply 1/4 cup of this honey glaze onto the chicken. Broil the chicken thighs for one minute before turning them over and spreading the remaining glaze onto the other side. Broil the chicken thighs for one more minute or until the meat is thoroughly cooked.
