    Pippy's Note:

    I have never made this without being rewarded with wonderful compliments, followed by adamant demands for the recipe. I got it from my friend Michaela, after adamantly demanding it myself! If making wings with the marinade, simply cook on a baking sheet after you take it out of the fridge.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 -9 chicken pieces, skin on (I have use drums and thighs, all breasts, or wings, all delicious. Cooking times are for bone-in, sk)
    • 1 cup honey
    • 3/4 cup soy sauce
    • 1/2 cup finely minced ginger
    • 1/2 cup minced garlic


    1. 1
      Heat honey, soy sauce, garlic and ginger in small saucepan on medium heat for five minutes.
    2. 2
      Place chicken, skin side down, in appropriately sized casserole.
    3. 3
      Pour marinade over chicken and refrigerate overnight or for at LEAST 4 hours.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 350.
    5. 5
      Cook chicken, covered, for 30 minutes.
    6. 6
      Uncover, turn chicken pieces over, increase heat to 375, and cook for 30-40 minutes longer, basting occasionally.
    7. 7
      Make sure that the sauce does not cover chicken, and only reaches about halfway up.
    8. 8
      This will let the skin get crispy and gorgeously dark.
    9. 9
      I love this with rice (cooked with vegetable stock), fresh cilantro and lime juice, and mango salad (recipe posted).
    10. 10
      To freeze: Place chicken and sauce ingredients in a large freezer bag. Seal, label and freeze.
    11. 11
      To serve: Thaw in fridge and proceed with cooking directions.

      I was really worried about how this would turn out. The marinade seemed very strong and a bit odd. No need to worry, this produced fabulous tender and flavourful chicken. It was nicely sticky with sweet soft flesh. I used skinless chicken legs. I know it says to use with skin on but skinless was all I had and it still turned out really good but next time I will get skin on legs for this. This was very like somethimg my mum used to make. Great recipe.

      This was very good. I added a little orange juice to the marinade, as I had a lot of chicken, and it was delicious. The next day, we had it cold and sliced in sandwiches! Kate in Katoomba

      This recipe is FABULOUS! I used boneless, skinless chicken breast pieces and grilled them instead of baking them. This recipe will become a family favorite!
