Ingredients You Need

Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise to make thinner cutlets. More sauce will coat more chicken this way.


Grate 2 garlic cloves and mince the other one. In a large bowl, add chicken, honey, soy sauce, lemon juice and garlic. Stir with tongs and let marinate while oven is preheating.


Preheat oven to 450° F and line large rimmed baking sheet with silicone baking mat or unbleached parchment paper.


Arrange chicken in a single layer and bake for 20 minutes on the lowest rack, turning once.


While chicken is baking, pour marinade into a small pot and bring to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk cold water with cornstarch. When marinade is boiling, add slurry to it and cook until sauce has thickened, about 3-4 minutes.


Remove chicken from the oven and transfer onto a serving platter. Drizzle with sauce and sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds.



Serve honey garlic chicken with Instant Pot brown rice or Instant Pot quinoa or healthy broccoli salad.


Refrigerate leftovers for up to 5 days in an airtight container. Perfect for a meal prep.
