Honey Glazed Pecan Chicken Recipe


There is nothing as lovely as a big jar of fresh honey. I love my honey guy. He’s a keeper. His last name is Combs. Would I kid about something like this? No, I could not.

With the introductions out of the way, let’s get started with the recipe. I am sure you’ll want to make it for dinner tonight so I will not keep you waiting any longer.

Pour five tablespoons of honey into a medium size bowl.

Add one cup of brown sugar.

And because that is not enough sweetness, add one cup of white sugar.

Melt one & 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) of butter.

Add butter to your sugar overload.

Stir ingredients together and set aside.

Brown chicken pieces by pouring a few tablespoons of oil into a frying pan, wait until oil is hot and then add chicken, salt & pepper both sides of chicken.

Brown chicken on both sides.

Place chicken into a baking pan.

Poor as much of the honey glaze over the chicken as you like. Just be sure to leave room for the broth that will cook out of the chicken in the baking dish.  As long as the chicken does not come in contact with any leftover glaze, you can save the glaze in the refrigerator for another time.

Check that out. I was so fast at chopping the pecans you didn’t even get to see it happen. Sprinkle as many chopped pecans over chicken as you would like and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until chicken is done.

You hear it but right now I am singing, “Glory! Glory!” This is even more exciting than the other day when I got my laundry all caught up.

My suggested back up singers would be fresh green beans and cornbread topped with homemade whipped honey butter… but only if you want your guests to come back begging for more.

  1. This looks amazing – I wonder if I could make it with just the honey and butter and leave out the sugar – you know – for us ‘no sugar freaks’? I may have to try it and see!

    I love this recipe. I made it a few weeks ago and it was great. Have you ever tried finishing them in the crock pot rather than the oven? How long do you think it would take to finish in the crock pot?

    • Hi Scarlett, I haven’t made it that way before but it would probably take about 5-6 hours. You can also check it with a meat thermometer to make sure it reaches 165 degrees and is done. I hope this is helpful! 🙂 Thank you so much for writing and I’m so glad you enjoyed this yummy chicken recipe!
