Honey Ginger Baked Chicken

This recipe is kid approved. My daughter gives it 2 thumbs up (but her opinion may be a little bias coz' she is a chicken loving girl). Anyway, if you have kids who love chicken drumsticks and chicken wings, you'll want to give this recipe a try.

  • 60ml water
  • 120g honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 50g fresh ginger, cut into strips
  • Crushed 2 cloves of garlic
  • About 10 chicken drumsticks and wings
  • Salt and grounded black pepper
  • 2 lime
  • Optional (light soy sauce, black soy sauce)
How To Cook
  • Clean the chicken, cutting away fat and skin. Make 1-2 cuts in the fleshy part of the chicken to allow marinate to seep in. Rub some salt and pepper onto it.
  • Prepare the marinate: Cook in a pan water, honey and sugar. After sugar is dissolved, add in the ginger strips. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir constantly.
  • Pour marinate over the chicken.
  • (Optional: Add in a few spoonful of light soy sauce and black soy sauce. I also put in some chicken marinate that comes in a bottle)
  • Mix in garlic and squeeze in some lime.
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours. Even better if you leave it overnight.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes at 200 degree celcius
  • Don't throw away the sauce. Put it in a separate bowl. Taste good with rice.
Makes a good non-traditional no turkey Christmas dish.
