Honey Soy Chicken with Sweet Chili Glaze

For a simple weeknight dish, this honey soy marinade livens up a chicken dish. Food blogger Jenna Weber shares her ideas for side dishes to pair with this entree in a full post on the Fresh Tastes blog.


Yield: 2-4 servings


  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • ¾ cup soy sauce {low sodium if possible}
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tbsp fresh minced ginger
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • ½ cup sweet chili sauce for glazing


  1. Combine the soy sauce, honey, chili garlic sauce, minced ginger and rice vinegar in a shallow bowl, such as a pie dish or cake pan. Place the chicken breasts in the marinade, cover with plastic wrap and chill for one hour.
  2. After an hour, heat up the canola oil in a large skillet or grill pan over medium/high heat. When hot, add the chicken breasts and cook for about 7 minutes per side, brushing each side with sweet chili sauce as they cook.
  3. The chicken breasts are done when juices run clear. Brush additional sweet chili sauce on and serve.
