Hot Honey Chicken Bowls

On a recent grocery shopping trip, I purchased hot honey chicken meatballs and couldn't wait to use them. After finding this recipe, I knew I had the perfect way to serve them.

I made a few tweaks:

  • I used chicken meatballs instead of chicken breasts
  • I reduced the amount of hot sauce to less than 1 tbsp
  • I omitted the cayenne pepper and crushed red pepper
  • I didn't have any squash, so I used cauliflower instead

This meal was bursting with flavors! 



Hot Honey Chicken

  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 medium boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup sriracha (or any type of hot sauce)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)


  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 1 medium summer squash, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 medium avocado, sliced
  • 2 cups cooked rice (or quinoa)
  • 1 medium lime
  • 1/2 cup healthy ranch dressing (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a skillet, cook the chicken in the oil for about 5-7 minutes on each side on the stovetop.
  3. Mix the honey, sriracha, garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne, and crushed red pepper to create the sauce.
  4. Set aside 2 Tbsp of the hot honey sauce.
  5. Add the sliced zucchini and summer squash to the skillet and remove from heat.
  6. Place the chicken on top of the squash and pour the hot honey sauce over it, coating it evenly and drizzling some on the squash as well.
  7. Place the entire skillet in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes (or until the chicken is fully cooked), stirring the vegetables halfway through.
  8. Remove the skillet from the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes.
  9. Cut the chicken into cubes and coat evenly in the remaining 2 Tbsp of hot honey sauce.
  10. Serve each bowl with cooked rice, zucchini, summer squash, shredded carrots, avocado slices, hot honey chicken, lime juice, and a drizzle of ranch!

These Hot Honey Chicken Bowls can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or the freezer for up to 3 months!

These bowls are pretty spicy, so feel free to tone down the heat by using a mild hot sauce instead of sriracha. You can also use tomato sauce if you really want mild version of this Hot Honey Chicken!
