Honey Garlic Roasted Chicken with Basil Butter Noodles is a meal to be remembered. The crispy chicken is topped with a caramelized honey garlic sauce that tastes better than takeout. The simply made basil butter gluten-free noodles take minutes to prepare and balance the sweet honey garlic chicken without overpowering the chicken’s deliciousness.

This Asian inspired chicken recipe may sound complicated, but it is super easy to make. The honey garlic sauce is deliciously caramelized, sticky and ever so flavourful. The sweet sauce makes the crispy chicken taste sooo good!


honey garlic chicken


to prepare the chicken for roasting,

First, this chicken recipe is made with halved chicken. Halved chicken is easier to season all over, and the chicken cooks faster. When making weeknight meals, sometimes we don’t have the extra time to cook an entire chicken. I made this chicken recipe for two by using one half of a chicken. You can use two halves for four people.

When roasting the chicken, you want to make sure the chicken stays juicy and is fully cooked. Overcooking will make the chicken dry and tough. It is best to follow chicken cooking times and use a meat thermometer for best results. First, the chicken is rubbed with simple spices mixed with butter. The butter makes the spices stick to the chicken and will make the chicken extra crispy.

honey garlic sauce → the details,

The chicken is roasted until crispy, then basted with the thick honey garlic sauce and broiled to perfection. The sauce takes virtually 2 minutes to prepare. You will need a small saucepan, add the ingredients and bring to a boil. The sauce starts to thicken very quickly. Once the sauce has thickened, set it aside until you are ready to baste the chicken.


gluten-free basil noodles


for the basil butter noodles,

This gluten-free noodle recipe takes two minutes to prepare once you cook the noodles. It is essential to cook the noodles in well salted water until al dente. Do not overcook the noodles, or they will become sticky and hard to toss with the basil butter. I wanted to use healthier gluten-free noodles with this honey garlic roasted chicken.

This was when I discovered a healthy gluten-free chickpea pasta. This gluten-free pasta was my personal preference, so feel free to use the gluten-free pasta you have on hand or the one you love. I wanted the pasta to be well coated with the basil butter, so I used angel hair pasta. Angel hair pasta is super thin and cooks very quickly. Because the pasta is so thin, it coats easily with the basil butter—a perfect side to honey garlic roasted chicken.


gluten-free chicken dinner


In this gluten-free chicken dinner, the Asian inspired honey garlic roasted chicken is super flavourful. This is why I wanted to balance the chicken with something milder in flavour as to compliment the chicken and not to overpower the sweet, garlicky chicken. The gluten-free noodle recipe is about light basil flavour and a little butter, making this gluten-free chicken dinner perfect.

This gluten-free chicken dinner doesn’t have to be served with basil butter noodles. You can add your favourite rice dish, steamed veggies or chop the chicken into a salad. Either way, this honey garlic roasted chicken dinner will be a big hit. Enjoy!
