Honey Glazed Roasted Chicken


Honey Glazed Roasted Chicken is a super juicy and flavorful chicken. It is coated with honey, rosemary, thyme, paprika and garlic for extra flavor and aroma. It’s a great option for those who want a lighter or simple menu as a weekend/holiday meal!

Roast chicken is so comforting, and a whole roast chicken can be an impressive addition to the holiday table. I know it’s too late post my Easter menu now but still better late than never. I wanted to create a simple roast chicken with the essence of herbs and honey– not overly sweet, but full of flavor. I had added little extra heat to this a teaspoon of red pepper flakes hit upon the perfect balance of flavors. As we prefer spicy food. So here it is my Honey Glazed Roasted Chicken Recipe.
