I am a firm believer that a person can never have too many chicken recipes. Chicken is great. It is a delicious, lean, and versatile, healthy protein.  Here is one of my new favorite chicken recipes. It has a great balance of the sweet and savory that your family is sure to love.

Local Ingredient: Local Honey (purchased at a local farmer’s market)

Sweet Honey Chicken

Sweet Honey Chicken


2 ½ lbs. Assorted Bone-In, Skin-On Chicken Parts

2 clove garlic, minced

½ cup honey mustard

½ cup coconut aminos

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon ground ginger

Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Sea salt, to taste


  1. In a small bowl combine garlic, coconut aminos, honey mustard, balsamic vinegar, ground ginger, salt, and pepper. Stir to blend.
  2. Rinse chicken parts, pat dry with a towel and place in a baking dish.
  3. Pour marinade over the chicken. Cover and place in the refrigerator for anywhere from 30 mins to overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. Place entire baking dish with chicken pieces into preheated oven. Baste occasionally.
  6. Bake chicken for approximately 25 - 30 minutes (up to 40 minute for larger chicken breasts), or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees with a digital thermometer. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving (this little step is very important for juicy moist chicken!).

    1/2 honey mustard…I am assuming 1/2 cup but….maybe 1/2 tsp?

    Also, this is part of the 7 day challenge but do you have a recipe for honey mustard or was it suppose to be part of the grocery list.

      Hey Pam, the recipe calls for 1/2 cup honey mustard. We do not currently have a recipe for honey mustard on the website. However, a simple recipe is 1 1/4 cups honey, 3/4 cup dijon mustard (preferably smooth), and 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar. Put all the ingredients together in a bowl and whisk until well combined.

    What if you don’t have coconut aminos
