Need a quick meal the whole family will love?
Try this savory and sweet tasting Honey Butter Chicken! It’s an easy skillet meal idea the entire family will LOVE! We ate every last bite, and the caramelized buttery texture on this chicken is FANTASTIC. I love the buttery honey “sauce” it creates. You’ll be adding this tasty idea to the meal rotation for sure!
Easy method & easy ingredients
All we’re doing for this simple dish is cutting and sauteing the chicken! You can use chicken breast meat, but the thigh meat I used was super tender, moist, and yummy for this idea. The fresh minced garlic and apple cider vinegar add a delicious, savory flavor, and the honey makes the chicken taste sweetened and caramelizes nicely. I added a little chili oil for extra flavor, but of course, it can be omitted or adjusted to taste.
Hip Tip: Use your largest skillet for this idea. If you’re looking for a great suggestion, I personally still LOVE my 11 inch Copper Chef frying pan!
