You’re in for a REAL treat today!!! I’m very excited to have Amy of She Wears Many Hats guest posting on TidyMom. If you’re not familiar with Amy, trust me, you will be blown away by visiting her wonderful blog. While you’re there, soak up and be inspired by all her gorgeous photography and yummy recipes. Today she is sharing a chicken recipe thant I cannot wait to try real soon! I know my family will LOVE it!
Around here chicken makes a regular appearance on the dinner table. To tell you the truth, it gets a little boring after awhile – grilled chicken, baked chicken, sautéed chicken, chicken soup, chicken n’ pasta…
But with all that chicken, my family never tires of chicken thighs. We like the dark meat around here y’all. It’s good stuff and pretty inexpensive, too, but use whatever kinda chicken you like.
LET’S MAKE HONEY SOY BAKED CHICKEN
This honey soy baked chicken recipe is simple to whip up right before cooking or to use ahead of time as a marinade. Although a marinade typically includes an acid, such as a vinegar or citrus juice, you could certainly add either to this recipe.
What You Need For This Chicken Recipe
For this recipe, you’ll need olive oil, soy sauce, garlic cloves (or garlic powder), ground ginger, honey, salt and pepper.
You can easily switch up the ingredients to your liking and taste. A splash of sesame oil would be a nice addition.
Simple Steps to Make Honey Soy Baked Chicken
Basically, mix all ingredients together in a large plastic zip-top storage bag, add the chicken making sure to coat each piece.
Place chicken and sauce/marinade in baking dish or leave in large plastic bag to marinate in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
When ready to cook, bake in a 425° oven for 25 minutes with the skin side up.
Turn the chicken and cook another 15 minutes.
Then turn the chicken again to skin side up and finish cooking for another 10 minutes to crisp up the skin.
Cook until internal temperature of chicken reads 165°F.
NOTE: You can skip all the turning and flipping of the chicken if you’d like, but I think it cooks more evenly helping to avoid one side being too dry.
This honey soy chicken would be mighty tasty grilled as well.
