So Monday is labor day, which tends to be that last weekend of the summer. It’s the last guaranteed weekend for a nice old bbq in the backyard. This is also the last holiday that a lot of people get off until Thanksgiving. It’s one weekend that must be enjoyed.
So as you go to fire up that grill, I wanted to have a recipe for ya if you aren’t quite sure what to throw on the grill. This honey garlic grilled chicken gets its flavor with honey and garlic, just like the recipe title says, along with some olive oil and soy sauce. It’s a short list of ingredients, but it adds amazing flavor.
Plus, the grill itself, just enhances the flavor of the chicken too. Give this chicken a try this weekend as we all say goodbye to those summer days!
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp soy sauce
- ¼ cup honey
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 4 small chicken breasts or 2 large cut in half
- In a gallon sized freezer ziploc bag, add all of the ingredients except the chicken. Seal bag and shake and knead to combine ingredients.
- Add the chicken in and seal bag again, gently knead to get each piece of chicken coated with the marinade. Refrigerate for 2-12 hours.
- Grill chicken until fully cooked and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serves 4.
