A client of mine gave me this recipe and it quickly became a favorite in our house. The best part is that everyone is involved: I make the glaze, the kids shake the jar, my husband runs the grill. Teamwork! It is seriously the best coconut oil chicken glaze on the planet!
Coconut Oil Chicken Glaze
This coconut oil glaze is so tasty on chicken. It's very easy to throw together.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 Tbsp raw honey
- 1 Tbsp minced onion flakes
1. Mix all ingredients in a jar in the morning.
2. Every time you walk past the jar, give it a good shake. Kids will love this! This works best on legs and thighs.
3. Put the chicken on the grill and cook it.
4. When the chicken has approximately 20 minutes left, start basting with the sauce. You just brush and baste, then flip the chicken.
5. Continue to do this until the sauce is gone.

I would substitute beer for water and use it as a marinade. A lot less fuss and a little more flavor!
Ann, thats a great idea!
Love when I have all the ingredients already in my kitchen. Looks great and will definitely try it!
How do you keep the coconut oil in liquid form for shaking, spreading?
I just melt it and it stays liquid. I’m sure if it sat for days it might become solid, or if it was really cool in your house.
Yum, will it work out if its baked in the oven?
I’m sure it will!
I’m a bit confused, do you marinate the chicken, or just based it after its been cooking for awhile? If so, why would you mix up the sauce so early? Can’t you just mix the sauce up, fire up the grill and then baste? What is the benefit of doing it earlier in the day? Thanks!
Deborah, you surely can just mix and baste. It just melds the flavors together better if they are allowed to sit all day. Shaking the jar agitates the mixture and enhances the flavor. Sort of like an infused oil. I like to make it and let it infuse all day, then fire up the grill and cook the meat and once its really cooking I baste with the glaze. I bet it would make a great marinade too though!
I am excited to give this a try! A great alternative to the same old same old bbq sauce! 🙂
This looks delicious! We use coconut oil all the time, but never in a marinade. Great idea 🙂
How much chicken should you say this is enough for?
We just made the marinade, and after melting the coconut oil, it solidified almost immediately. How am I supposed to keep it liquid. Right now the jar looks gross. It sounds delicious, but I am conflicted. I read the other comments, but my house isn’t cold and it still solidified. Help me please.
Hmm, I am not sure. You can warm it by putting the jar in some warm water before using it
