Five on Friday: Honey Chicken Heaven

September 13, 2013 | By | Comments (2)

Each Friday, we share five things that are getting buzz around the Cooking Light offices—from what we’re reading around the Web, to what’s hot on Instagram, or even our latest favorite ingredient.

If you’re anything like me, you’re amazed that it’s September already. Wasn’t it June, like, two days ago? Oh well.

September is both National Chicken Month and National Honey Month, and it’s safe to say we’re pretty big fans of both of those over here at Cooking Light. But put them together, and you get sweet, sweet culinary magic our taste buds just can’t resist.

In honor of this delicious combination, here are 5 of our favorite honey chicken recipes. You can thank us later.

Chicken with Honey-Beer Sauce

This recipe is perfect for a relaxing weekend dinner. The sauce shines brightest when you use a beer that’s full of flavor.


Honey Cashew Chicken with Rice

Takeout’s got nothing on this dish. And it’s another excuse to whip out that bottle of Sriracha you love so much.


Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs

This dinner is a real kick in the taste buds, thanks to the perfect balance of sweet and spicy in the honey glaze.


Honey-Wine Braised Chicken Thighs with Mustard Greens

This dish provides just the right amount of tang, plus a healthy serving of hearty, dark green veggies. Serve over rice or lo mein noodles for a complete meal.


Honey-Lime Chicken Kebabs with Mango Slices

Keep summer hanging around just a little bit longer with these fruity-sweet kebabs. If mango’s not your favorite, just sub in the tropical fruit of your choice.


Which is your pick? Do you have another favorite way to combine honey and chicken?
