Honey Lemon Chicken Recipe

This is a great baked chicken recipe that’s not overpowering.  The honey lemon seasoning is light, sweet, tangy, and down right delicious!

Honey Lemon Glazed Chicken

I love that this recipe is a quick 5 minute prep and it’s freezer friendly– just mix all the ingredients, coat the chicken, and throw in the freezer before baking for a quick simple meal!

Cook time
Total time
Sweet and tangy without being overpowering. This lightly flavored chicken is a perfect summertime dish!
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 3
  • 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • ¼ Cup Honey
  • ¼ Cup Melted Butter
  • 1 Lemon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. I cut the chicken into smaller pieces but you can make the whole breast-- just note cooking times will be a bit longer.
  3. Mix together honey and melted butter.
  4. Add in lemon zest. To zest a lemon you'll want to use a fine grater and scrape the outside peel of the lemon-- only scrape the yellow-- once you get to the white the lemon becomes too tart and you don't want that.
  5. Squeeze the lemon juice into the honey butter mixture.
  6. Mix all ingredients well and pour over chicken in a baking dish.
  7. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.
  8. Flip chicken and bake an additional 15 minutes.
  9. Check that chicken is done all the way through.
  10. Spoon the juices back over the chicken.
  11. Broil for 5 minutes or until chicken is a golden brown and sauce has caramelized on top.
