Honey and Spiced Glazed Chicken

Main Dishes



1/4 cup honey
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. sweet paprika
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 (10-oz.) bone-in chicken breast halves with skin
Salt and freshly ground pepper


Preheat oven to 425 F. In a small bowl, mix honey, garlic, lemon juice, mustard, paprika and cayenne. Put chicken breasts on a rimmed baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, make 2 deep slashes in each chicken breast; season with salt and pepper. Brush most of the honey glaze over chicken. Bake 15 minutes. Brush with remaining honey glaze and bake about 10 minutes longer, or until cooked through. Remove chicken breasts from oven. Preheat to broil. Using a clean brush, brush juices from baking sheet onto chicken and broil about 1 minute, or until skin is crisp. Serve immediately.
