This easy Honey Glazed Chicken recipe owes all of its deliciousness to the sweet and savory sauce! Chicken breasts are dredged in flour to add a little crispiness in the skillet, then coated in a glaze made with orange juice, honey, garlic, soy sauce, and ginger, before being baked in the oven. It’s a simple dish with tons of flavor!
