This chicken is a little sweet from the honey, and savory from the soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Big flavor goes all the way from skin to bone, and it is so delicious! And you won’t believe how easy it is.

Ingredients
  1. 3-4 pounds skin-on, bone-in drumsticks and thighs
Marinade
  1. 1/2 cup soy sauce
  2. 5 tablespoons honey
  3. 3 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
  4. 1 tablespoon garlic pressed through a garlic press
  5. 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  6. 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  7. Chopped green onions for garnish
Instructions
  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl, and whisk to combine.
  2. Place chicken pieces in a big ziplock bag, and pour in the marinade. Get as much air out as possible and seal.
  3. Place in the refrigerator for about 24 hours, turning once or twice so the marinade can seep into all the chicken.
  4. When you are ready to bake the chicken, take the chicken out of the refrigerator and place in an oven-proof baking dish, skin side up (our 4 pounds of chicken barely fit into a 13x9 dish.)
  5. Pour the marinade over the chicken into the baking dish.
  6. Bake for about 30-40 minutes at 475 degrees, until the chicken is cooked through and the skin becomes dark and crispy.
  7. If the skin isn't browned, you can also turn the broiler on for a few minutes.
  8. Take the chicken out of the dish and put on a platter. Garnish with green onions.
  9. If desired, put the marinade/sauce from the baking dish into a oil/fat separator cup and pour the sauce over your chicken (and rice if you are serving over rice.)
  10. Bon Appetit! 😀
