Found this recipe in "Six Ingredients or Less: Chicken Cookbook" It's so easy and uses ingredients that most of us always have on hand. The sauce tastes great over rice. The recipe calls for a whole chicken, but you could use bone in breasts or thighs or any combination that you would like and adjust cooking time accordingly. This is also good with pork chops.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken, skin side down, in 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in small saucepan and place over low heat until butter is melted.
  3. Stir to mix well.
  4. Pour over chicken.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  6. Turn and bake 20 to 30 minutes or until done, basting occasionally.

Well we all supremely enjoyed this dish (I did cut the soy by halve - habit but in this recipe I may just up this by an extra tablespoon and for us perfect I think). I used drumsticks and mine got colour (baked a total 45 minutes but hadn't quite got to the sticky stage) but honestly we were glad of the sauce for the rice, delicious. I did use the microwave to combine and melt the sugar, soy sauce and butter together - 45 seconds total in 900 watt oven - stirred after first 30 seconds. Thank you for one I will try again with a quartered chicken - which I think with the larger joint will get me to the sticky stage, made Edition 7 - Make My Recipe.

Really good chicken. I'm not sure if it was my batch, or what, but mine did not carmalize like the photo, just left a soupy base at the bottom of the pan. The chicken was not dark but white. Having said that, I put the marinade in a small bowl on service for dipping and it was good, just not the dark caramel product I expected.
