Chicken with Honey and Lime
This is a delicious way of cooking chicken as the lime juice gives it an extra kick. The chicken breast remains moist, while the skin remains crispy and flavorful.

PrintSave Recipe



  • 4 chicken breast, bone in, skin on
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • ½ cup honey
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Rub the chicken breast with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the chicken skin side down in a baking dish and cook for 30 minutes. When the chicken is cooking, in a small bowl mix the honey, lime juice, mustard, salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the honey mixture over the chicken breasts and continue cooking for another 10 to 15 minutes or until tender and the juices run clear when a skewer is inserted into the thickest part of the meat.
  5. Remove the chicken to a serving platter and let it stand for 5 minutes then serve.

Oh yeah, I totally get how the lime would lift the flavour of the chicken.

This sounds wonderful! I love lemon chicken and I’m sure this would be even better.

Tried this a couple of nights ago. Served it exactly like you pictured it (with the potatoes). Very easy and delicious. Thank you.

Hi Erica, I am looking to make this recipe as I made the pollo con leche de coco with great success! I was just wondering if I could make wings instead. Do you know if and how I can modify this recipe to make it with wings? Thanks!
