Before we jump right into recipe and make this AMAZING honey garlic chicken, there’s a few tips you need to know so recipe turns out absolutely perfect every single time


  • 3 lbs chicken thighs (you can use any chicken you like really, not only thighs)
  • 4 – 6 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 small onion, grated or minced into fine pieces
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (I used the reduced sodium kind)
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp honey
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsps brown sugar

For the Sauce on the Side:

  • 2 tsps cornstarch
  • Drippings from the baking dish


  • Pre-heat the oven to 375°F.
  • In a glass 9″x10″ baking dish, whisk together all ingredients except for the chicken. Combine well.
  • Place the chicken into the dish and spoon some of the mixture over top of each piece.
  • Optional: You can marinade the chicken in this mixture ahead of time if you like.
  • Place the baking dish in the oven uncovered and bake for 45 – 60 minutes. (Make sure to also spoon some of the sauce over the chicken a few times as it's cooking)
  • Once the chicken is finished cooking, remove from the baking dish and place on a serving plate.
  • Serve with rice, veggies or anything else you might enjoy it with!

How to make the Sauce on the side:

Skim the fat off the top of the drippings as much as possible. If there's a little fat left, that's ok too. You can also remove most of the fat using a gravy separator if you have one.
Combine about 1/4 of the drippings and the cornstarch in a small dish and set aside. Mix it together using a whisk to make sure there are no lumps.
Pour the remaining drippings into a sauce pot and bring to a boil.
Add the cornstarch mixture and lower the heat. Stir constantly using a whisk until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. Remove from the heat and serve with the chicken.
