  • Chicken - 250 gms
  • Olive Oil - 3 Tsp
  • Honey - 1 Tbsp
  • Freshly Squeezed Lemon - 1 Tsp
  • Dark Soya Sauce - 1 Tsp
  • White Vinegar - 1 Tsp
  • Salt - ½ Tsp
  • Black Pepper - ½ Tsp
  • Freshly Grated Garlic Cloves - 1 Tsp
  • Tomato Sauce - 1 Tsp
  • Parsley or Cilantro for Garnish
  • Lemon slice for garnish


  • In a bowl, add honey, fresh lemon juice, white vinegar, and dark soya sauce. Give it a good whisk to combine all the ingredients.
  • Now in another bowl, add chicken breast and season with salt and black pepper.
  • Pour all the honey lemon garlic sauce over the chicken and mix well.
  • Now in a pan, pour olive oil and heat it up.
  • Add grated garlic and saute for few seconds until the garlic starts to change color and become aromatic.
  • Now place the chicken in a frying pan over the garlic and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes at high/medium temperature the chicken gets a color.
  • Flip the chicken and cook from another side in the same way.
  • Place tomato sauce and mix well with chicken.
  • Now pour the remaining honey lemon garlic sauce over the chicken and simmer it on medium heat.
  • It's best to cover with a lid for 10 minutes and cook on low heat to get juicy, moist, and tender chicken breast.
  • After 10 minutes, remove the lid and cook the sauce to make it thick.
  • Now the chicken is ready to serve.
  • Garnish with parsley and lemon slices.



  • Brine the chicken in saltwater before marinating with sauce. It will make juicy and tender chicken breast and will not be dried off during eating.
  • If you are taking frozen chicken then make sure the chicken is at room temperature.
  • Don't cook the sauce for a long time otherwise, the sauce will burn due to the caramelization of honey.
  • Avoid adding water to the sauce.
  • As we are adding soya sauce which is salty in taste so monitor the quantity of salt.
  • Soya sauce and vinegar make the best taste so don't skip it. It will give your better flavor in the sauce.
  • If chicken breast is thick then give it more time to simmer.
  • It's recommended to fry the chicken breast on high heat. It will make the chicken more delicious and juicy.
