You are going to fall in love with this 5 ingredient paleo and gluten free Honey BBQ Chicken recipe! All whole foods, super simple to prep ahead, and requires minimal cooking. Don't feel like turning the oven on? Fire up the grill and cook over indirect heat (since the BBQ sauce contains honey and the chicken could easily burn if cooked over direct flames). A simple coleslaw and roasted potatoes (try grilling these in foil packs!) make the perfect sides. The potatoes also act as great “mops” for the extra sauce!
