I happened to have some chicken breast hanging out in my fridge and decided to whip up something without purchasing new ingredients.  


  • 2 large bone in chicken breasts
  • Lawry's garlic salt (my favorite) 
  • 6 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika  
  • 1 teaspoon Ancho chile powder  
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper  
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry parsley  

step one: 

Preheat the oven to 350. The chicken is patted dry before seasoning with Lawry's garlic salt.  IF time permits, I like to let the chicken air dry in the fridge for at least an hour. I don't oil the chicken till later.

step two: 

After 30 minutes, I take the chicken out and brush a layer of olive oil. Stick the chicken back in for another 10 minutes with the oven cranked to 375. 

step three: 

Mixed the spices, the honey, vinegar and that one tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl with a dash of salt. I didn't have any lemons, and that's why I used red wine vinegar for acidity. After the chicken has been in for another 10 minutes, brush the honey sauce over the chicken and pop it back. Let it go for another 5-10 minutes. The honey will start caramelizing.  


I brushed 2 coats of the honey mixture. The skin was nice and crispy! For the side dish, I just microwaved some frozen corn then mixed it with mayonnaise, and then seasoned with salt and cayenne. 

Super delicious and easy. Extremely effortless and definitely something people will rave about.
