cooking time

total time
30 minutes


  • A medium-sized mixing bowl

  • A whisk or fork (for mixing)

  • A frying pan or skillet

  • A spatula

  • A knife (for mincing garlic)

  • Measuring cups and spoons


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1/3 cup of honey

  • 1/4 cup of low-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Optional garnishes: sesame seeds, chopped green onions



Start by mixing the garlic, honey, and soy sauce in a bowl.


Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.


Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat.


Once the oil is hot, add the chicken breasts and cook until browned on both sides.


Pour the honey garlic sauce over the chicken.


Reduce the heat to low and let the chicken simmer in the sauce for about 10 minutes, or until fully cooked.


Once the chicken is cooked through, remove from heat and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions if desired.


Serve with your choice of sides such as rice or steamed vegetables.


I recommend marinating the chicken for at least 30 minutes before cooking to enhance the flavors. Using low-sodium soy sauce is key to controlling the salt content. Additionally, if you prefer a thicker sauce, you can mix a teaspoon of cornstarch with water and add it to the sauce as it cooks. Don't forget to taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning as needed.
