Recipe Notes

Cooking Just for Two? This meal can easily be prepared in smaller quantities by cutting all of the ingredients in half. You can use only chicken breasts, only thighs, or only drumsticks if that's an easier way to purchase 1.5-2 lbs. of meat. You will also want to cut the glaze ingredients in half. Cooking time should remain the same.

Want to Prep Ahead? There's not much prep work involved at all, but if you want to get a head start you can whisk together the glaze in advance. Keep it covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week before using.

Note: Nutrition information includes skin-on chicken and entire sauce recipe. While cooking, a lot of the sauce drips off, so nutritional stats will vary depending on how much of the glaze is actually consumed.
