Honey Barbecue Chicken in the Oven

4 May

 honey bbq spice mixI adapted this barbecue glaze from something I found online. Though this recipe is for oven-roasted chicken, you could certainly put the chicken on the barbie (I’m just not lucky enough to own a barbecue!) The honey I used was the run-of-the-mill honey you get in a bear-shaped squeeze bottle. It’s quite viscous, so I used 2/3 cup. For the chicken, I used chicken thighs with the skin and bones already removed. You can also get bone-in thighs and leave the skin on, though they will take longer to cook.



  • 8 chicken thighs
  • ⅔ cup honey
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper



  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, combine everything except chicken.
  2. Place chicken on a roasting pan or a foil-covered baking sheet. Brush half of the honey mixture on both side of chicken.
  3. Roast boneless chicken for about 12 minutes, or bone-in chicken for about 20 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken from oven. Brush on a second coat of the honey mixture. Return chicken to oven and roast for another 12 minutes (boneless chicken) or 25 minutes (bone-in chicken). Serve hot (shown above served with Chinese veggies on brown rice.)
