The process is simplified yet perfect, and it takes just about 30 mins.

You start by whisking together honey, lime juice, soy sauce, and garlic—ingredients that create a honey lime chicken marinade that works wonders on the chicken.

After letting the chicken soak up the flavors for a while, it’s just minutes on the grill or in the pan.

The result? Juicy, tender chicken that’s crazy good and constantly has everyone begging for more.

Honey Lime Chicken Chinese Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 lb (500g) chicken thighs, deboned, skin-on
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1.5 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 dashes cayenne pepper
  • 1 big pinch salt
  • Chopped parsley for garnish
  • Lime wedges for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Turn your oven on to 400°F (207°C). Take the minced garlic and rub it all over the chicken thighs using your hands. This helps the garlic flavor soak into the chicken.
  2. Make the Marinade: In a bowl, mix together the honey, soy sauce, lime juice, cayenne pepper, and salt. Pour this mixture over the chicken, ensuring it’s well coated. If you like your chicken extra juicy and flavorful, feel free to double the amount of marinade.
  3. Bake the Chicken: Place the marinated chicken on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Cover the chicken with another piece of foil to keep it from getting too dark too quickly.
  4. Cooking Time: Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Occasionally, you might want to spoon the dripped sauce from the bottom of the tray back onto the chicken to keep it moist and flavorful.
  5. Broil for Perfection: After the chicken is cooked, remove the top foil and switch your oven to broil. Let the chicken broil for about 1 minute or just until the skin gets slightly charred.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Once done, take the chicken out of the oven. Sprinkle chopped parsley over the top for a fresh, herby touch. Serve honey lime chicken baked with lime wedges, squeezing the lime over the chicken right before you dig in for that extra zing.
