When I’m planning meals for my family, there are a few requirements I have: they have to be yummy (obviously!!), wholesome and good for our budget. When my kids were little, they weren’t huge fans of meat dishes, but I have been trying to get them to eat more dishes that are high in protein and filling too- but they have to taste just right. One of our favorite main dishes is this super easy 5 ingredient sticky honey chicken. It’s so simple to make, only uses a few ingredients and tastes amazing!
Wholesome meals are a must for my family. I love shopping for high quality meats, vegetables and fruits that are as whole as possible. When you prepare these high quality ingredients just right, they will make delicious meals that not only taste great but also are healthy for you! When I’m shopping for our dog, I have the same requirements as I do for when I’m shopping for people food. I am always on the lookout for a high quality dry food that is full of what my dog does need, like meats, whole grains and vitamins, and doesn’t have a bunch of junk that she doesn’t need, like fillers and empty calories.This was why I was SO excited when my favorite brand of dog food, Beneful, became even better because it now has real meat as the number one ingredient!
Beneful Originals is the perfect food for my middle sized doggy. (If you have a smaller doggy, Beneful Incredibites will be the right food for you!) It’s full of real chicken or beef and has no added sugars. It has the same great taste and texture my dog has loved, so there weren’t any upset belly issues when the switch was made. Best of all, I can grab a big bag of Beneful Originals at my local Target when I am shopping for the human food ingredients I need for our dinner. Beneful is a great price too, so I have more money in my budget for the other things we need.
My dog loved the new switch so much, she was eating the food before I could even put her bowl back where it belongs! She ate the whole bowl in one sitting, which is saying a lot for my pup. I feel so good knowing that when my family is enjoying our wholesome meal together, our dog, Biscuit, is also having a full meal that is good for her too.
Back to our human meal now- Like I said, this 5 ingredient sticky honey chicken is one of our favorite dishes. It cooks in only 20 minutes so it’s perfect for busy week nights or for back to school. The longer you marinate this chicken they better it is, so I try and put the sauce together in the morning and cook it later or you could even let it sit overnight too. It’s only made with a few ingredients too, all of which are probably sitting in your pantry now!
- ¾ cup honey
- ¾ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup minced garlic
- ½ tablespoon ginger
- 2 los chicken breast
- Combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl and marinate chicken in it for a few hours, longer is possible.
- When ready to bake the chicken, preheat the oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with tin foil.
- Bake the chicken for 20-25 minutes.
- Before serving, drizzle with a little more honey and top with sliced green onions (optional)
Serve this chicken with a side of rice and a small side salad and you have yourself a balanced meal. This is a favorite with my picky eaters too, which is saying a lot! I love meals like this that come together quickly and are full of quality ingredients. It’s a total parenting win. I have the same feeling when I serve my doggy her big bowl full of Beneful Originals Dry Dog Food. I know she is eating a quality product that will give her enough energy to keep up with my kids!
