Barefoot Pinot Grigio Chicken with Honey Citrus Glaze

This chicken marinade is simple but utterly delicious. It’s perfect for a dinner party as most of the prep can be done before people arrive, so you aren’t stuck in the kitchen while your besties are catching up and getting stuck into a chilled glass of Barefoot wine.

But, while fairly simple to prepare, the taste is far from it - it’s a genuine treat for your taste buds. This succulent honey chicken marinade is certainly guaranteed to wow your mates, so it’s a winner if you’re out to impress. Our Barefoot Pinot Grigio, which is crisp and bursting with citrus and peach flavours, is the perfect addition. It gives a very tropical taste to this fruity chicken. Enjoy!


  • For marinade:
  • 120ml Barefoot Pinot Grigio
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Juice of ½ orange
  • For chicken:
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp rapeseed oil
  • For glaze:
  • 80ml Barefoot Pinot Grigio
  • 80ml honey
  • Juice of ½ orange
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • Sprinkle of sea salt and pepper


  1. Combine the minced garlic cloves, honey, juice of your orange and the Barefoot Pinot Grigio in a large but shallow dish and then add the chicken breasts.
  2. Cover the dish and place it in the fridge for an hour.
  3. Take the chicken out of the fridge once marinated and place on the side.
  4. Heat oil in a grill pan over a medium to high heat. Add the chicken once it is hot.
  5. Cook for six to eight minutes on each side and then check it is cooked through.
  6. Start to make the glaze as the chicken is cooking, using the Barefoot Pinot Grigio, honey, juice from the orange and lime juice. Simmer in a small pot for 30 seconds and then remove from heat.
  7. Turn off the heat once chicken is cooked and pour the glaze over it, add a pinch of salt and pepper to season.
