What’s For Dinner? Sweet Chicken


One of the best wedding presents I received was a lovely recipe book my mom compiled of all our favorite family recipes.  I know it took a lot of time for her to type up and put together and I am thankful to have all the tried and true recipes I enjoy from my childhood.  I have added my own recipes to it over the past couple years, but there are still a lot of the originals I come back to time and time again.


Last night I decided to make the sweet chicken that was included in our books.  It is a simple recipe that consists of chicken baked in a combination of honey and soya sauce,  and proves that sometimes simple is best.  The sauce is a lot like a teriyaki and I enjoy it best served over rice to soak up the extra sauce.  With a steamed veggie on the side, it makes for a quick meal that both the adult and child family members of my family enjoy – the dogs seemed pretty pleased with the kids leftovers too!



  • 3 lbs chicken (we found boneless, skinless chicken thighs work best)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soya sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Ketchup
  • Salt and pepper to taste



  1. Place chicken in a shallow pan.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Whisk together other ingredients to make the sauce.
  4. Pour sauce over chicken.
  5. Cook at 375 degrees for 1 hour.
