Easy and delicious weeknight meal. The sauce thickens while cooking so prep time is at a minimum and is perfect with rice and broccoli. You can use any cut of chicken you like - just adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Combine the first 10 ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Place chicken pieces in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour sauce over chicken and turn to thoroughly coat.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Turn pieces over, and bake for another 10 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear.
  5. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.
  6. ***If using bone-in chicken breasts, bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes. If using boneless chicken breasts, bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
  7. ***If you prefer (especially if you are cooking for a shorter amount of time), bring all the ingredients to a boil in a saucepan on the stove and let simmer until thick. Brush the chicken with the resulting glaze.

Delicious! I used 1/3 cup of soy sauce as recommended by other users, and it was definitely perfect. I served it with mashed potatoes and vegetables.This recipe was quick, and easy to follow. My household is nothing but picky eaters who said it was amazing. I would only recommend if you are using boneless breasts to let the sauce thicken in a saucepan and than pour it over the chicken after baking for about 10 minutes. EXCELLENT DISH!

Awesome! I used boneless skinless chicken breast and cooked them for 20 minutes and then flipped them for another 15 minutes. They were so juicy and tender. Thanks!

Made as written with b/s chicken breasts and they came out juicy and tender. I did cook them for 30 minutes since they were a little thick and the sauce thickened up nicely and made a very tasty glaze for the chicken. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag.
