Easy Honey Glazed Chicken with Rice and Baby Spinach

Honey Glazed ChickenThis delicious honey glazed chicken recipe is great if you want something that is both quick and easy to do and also very tasty. It is perfect for dining with friends and also family meals. It is also perfect for one or two diners.

I love this because the glaze makes it really tasty and doesn’t take ages to do. Also, it is quite economical as well.

This is a highly adaptable recipe and you can swap the vegetables or the glaze to suit your own tastes. It’s one of my favourites and I do different glaze mixes to vary the taste. I also serve it with green beans from time to time.

Here I used frozen chicken out of necessity, however, I recommend fresh wherever possible.

Honey Glazed Chicken with Rice and Baby Spinach

I had wanted to do a honey glazed chicken dish for some time. I love the taste of the sweet and sour style dishes. While I was thinking about it, it suddenly occurred to me to add star anise. That idea gave me the push I needed to get up and create the dish.
