What Kind of Chicken to use for Baked Honey Garlic Chicken

I love making this dish with tender chicken thighs. They’re so moist and juicy, and super affordable which is always a plus. But if you don’t have any thighs on hand, this sauce is delicious over chicken breasts, wings, or boneless tenders. 

Is Baked Honey Garlic Chicken Gluten Free?

Most of the ingredients in this amazing dish are totally gluten free. However, check the labels on your soy sauce! Most soy sauce contains gluten. There are a few great gluten-free options at your grocery store. So read labels and opt for a GF version. Then serve it alongside a crisp green salad and you’ve got a perfect gluten-free meal to entertain with!
