Gluten-Free Sweet Chicken Recipe

This sweet chicken is an easy gluten-free chicken dinner that’s easy to prepare and easy to clean up. I serve over baked brown rice, with a side of green beans and fresh baked gluten-free biscuits or cornbread.

Gluten-Free Sweet Chicken

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 3 lbs. chicken breasts or chicken tenders
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup ketchup*
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


Line 9×13 baking pan (I use glass) with aluminum foil for easy clean-up.

Lay thawed chicken breasts or chicken tenders in pan.

In a 4-cup measuring cup or a medium sized bowl, whisk together all other ingredients. Pour over chicken in pan.

Bake at 375° for 45 minutes (breasts) or 25-30 minutes (tenders). Cooking time will vary depending on size of chicken pieces, so make sure you keep checking on it.

Serve with rice.


While I’ve never come across a ketchup that contains gluten here in the US, please always double-check. See blog post for more information.
