Soy Lime Glazed Chicken Breasts

It’s been pretty cold and rainy so I opted to bake the chicken instead of smoking them. Plus I forgot that I’d ran out of wood pellets. Whoops!


3 large Chicken Breasts

½ teaspoon Garlic Powder

½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika

Salt and Pepper to taste


¼ cup Lime Juice

¼ cup Soy Sauce

2 teaspoons Lime Zest

2 Tablespoons Honey

⅛ teaspoon Ginger; grated

1 clove Garlic; minced

½ teaspoon Chinese Five Spice

Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes

1 Tablespoon Cornstarch

2 Tablespoons cold Water

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a medium bowl, whisk the sauce ingredients, minus the cornstarch and cold water.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then place in a baking dish. Pour the sauce over top and cover with foil. Bake for 25 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F.

Strain the pan juices into a skillet over medium heat. Whisk together the cornstarch and cold water, then add the slurry to the saucepan. Continue to whisk until thickened, about 3 minutes

Slice the chicken and pour the sauce over top. Garnish with sesame seeds or green onions.
