ginger garlic rubbed chicken with honey drizzle

I got this recipe from Week of Menus but made a few modifications to suit what I had on hand and my preferred method of cooking. It’s so simple but so flavorful! A perfect dinner idea when you don’t know what to make with chicken :)

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoons rice vinegar


Mix garlic, ginger, paprika, salt, and olive oil in a bowl. Mix well. Add chicken and rub well so that the mixture coats all the chicken evenly. Let stand for about 30 minutes (Week of Menus didn't specify to marinate, so you can proceed if you’re pressed for time).

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Heat a cast iron pan on medium high heat. When the skillet is hot, drizzle with olive oil then add chicken. Sear about two minutes per side, then finish cooking in the oven for about eight minutes. Remove from heat, brush with honey-vinegar and return to the oven for another minute or two. Place the chicken on a serving dish with the honey sauce on the side. I served our meal up with rice and steamed baby bok choy with oyster sauce.
