This Sweet and Sour Glazed Chicken recipe is a sweet -citrus chicken and much like a barbeque style chicken. The sticky glaze was finger licking good! Ted and I both agreed it is a keeper and would be great for lunches, brunches or dinners. I will be making this again as it was a keeper! I think it would also be good to take to pot lucks or parties since it is a rather quick and easy way to make a chicken dish.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts about 4 ounces each
2 Tlbs honey
2 Tlbs Lite or low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
1 Tlbs. Lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Using a sharp knife, score the chicken breast with a criss-cross pattern on both sides. Be sure not to cut through the meat.
Combine the honey, soy sauce, lemon peel, and juice in a small bowl and season with pepper.
Arrange the chicken on the broiler rack and brush with half the honey mixture. Cook under a preheated broiler for 10 minutes, then turn over and brush with the remaining mixture and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes. The juices should run clear when the thickest part of the chicken is Skewered.
