Sticky Garlic Honey Baked Chicken

Sticky Garlic Honey Baked Chicken- unbelievably delicious and easy enough for a weeknight!

YES! YES! YES!

Sticky Garlic Honey Baked Chicken is what you need for dinnah tonight. I mean, look at that glaze! It speaks to my soul.

My favorite meals are always ones that combine sweet and salty flavors into one dish. I tend to favor Asian cuisines (specifically Japanese) for that exact reason. The duo of soy sauce + brown sugar or honey is what my dreams are made of and always make for the most delicious recipes!

Sticky Garlic Honey Baked Chicken- unbelievably delicious and easy enough for a weeknight!

This chicken bake takes your normal chicken dinner to the next level and, in all seriousness, is a party for your tastebuds. Your tastebuds will hold a RAGER in your mouth. Confetti falling from the roof (of your mouth), a tastebud DJ, tastebuds dancing on tables, the works. This recipe is easy and fast enough for a weekday and is perfect when served with a side of brown rice and broccoli.

Enjoy!
