I love sweet and savory flavors. From my honey soy garlic pork chops to one of my favorite and most popular recipes - honey za'atar chicken, this sweet and savory gig is a lifestyle! lol No but seriously, I love to mix up flavors that you wouldn't normally associate with one another. Specifically, with this honey garlic chicken with peach salsa, all of the ingredients come together SO well. It makes this dish a masterpiece.

As I mentioned, this recipe is super simple. Season the chicken, sear, and then bake/roast in the oven. For the salsa, chop up the ingredients and combine. Put the two together and you're done! Start to finish, this recipe takes about 40 minutes.

What to serve with honey garlic chicken

There's so many foods that will pair well with this dish. What did we serve with it? I had some tortilla strips and cauliflower rice. You can also serve with rice, roasted potatoes, and/or a side salad. If you're really feeling up to it, you can chop up the chicken breast and add the salsa and chicken strips to a tortilla and make a wrap out of it. You can also drizzle some of this honey bbq sauce on top for extra flavor!

However you decide to serve it, it's sure to be delish!
