Asian-style Honey Baked Chicken


I found this recipe on and tried it out yesterday. Because of the ginger, the kids didn't really take to it, but it is abso delish for grownups who like a little sugar and spice! I used chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken as indicated in the original recipe and took out the green onions because I don't like 'em myself. So here's my adaptation:

(this recipe needs an oven)

Ingredients (feeds four)

  • 8 X chicken thighs or 4 X breasts, deboned, skinned
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • Ginger root, grated, about 2 tsp
  • 1 onion, chopped fine


  • In a bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, ginger, onions and pepper
  • Marinate chicken and let sit in fridge for about an hour, minimum. Don't forget to turn the chicken if you're not marinating in a bag
  • Preheat oven to 425F
  • Pam an appropriately sized baking dish and pour in chicken and marinate, making sure to coat the chicken nicely with the marinate. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn at half time.

This dish is great with rice or mash! If you don't things too sweet, reduce the honey to about 2 tbsp. Also, you can add carrots and broccoli in if you like, just remember to reduce the honey if you DO put carrots.




  1. Than you!
    And more; it was even better when I added just a bit of curry in it.

  2. sounds very yummy!

  3. can we leave out the garlic and ginger?

  4. garlic maybe not. ginger, yes

  5. The Palace Station Hotel and Casino provides all of the amenities that each of its guests needs to feel comfortable. [URL=]foods with china content[/URL]

  6. Interestingly enough, the majority of these same people who are confused about how to permanently lose fat, avoid any type of bodybuilding fitness or diet program like the plague.
