We eat a lot of chicken in the house. Mr. Bejelly explicitly asks that we only eat chicken 2 times a week however, after he tried this recipe, he changed his mind.

If you have made my recipes, you know that I am the queen of simple and this Sweet and Sticky Chicken is so easy that it almost doesn’t seem  like cooking.

Yes, it’s that good.

Why this recipe works

It’s super simple and you can easily use the same sauce to coat oven bake chicken wings for more variety. 

What you’ll need for this Recipe:

  • Coconut Oil
  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts 
  • Sea Salt and Black pepper
  • Fresh Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Coconut aminos 
  • Honey

 

How to Make This Sweet and Sticky Chicken Recipe:

In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt the coconut oil. Add in chicken and spices and mix to coat, let it cook for 3 minutes.

Add in the garlic and ginger and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, roughly 10 minutes.

Then add in the coconut amino and honey and mix until the chicken is coated. Lower the heat to medium and cook until most of the liquid is gone.  Spoon on your plate and enjoy!

Notes and Variations:

You can easily make the sauce in a pan and spoon it over oven baked wings. 

You can also use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts.  

Lastly you can add some red pepper flakes to make it spicy.
