The most delicious oven roasted chicken you will ever eat! Honey, soy, ginger and garlic combined to make this succulent glaze.

It only takes few minutes to prepare the marinade. Pour it over the  chicken and let it rest in the fridge for couple of hours to absorb more moisture and the result is a sweet glazed oven-roasted chicken that is incredibly tender.

For that you need:

  • 10 pieces of chicken (you can use breasts, thighs, full legs or just drumsticks)
  • 3/4 cup soy
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Combine together all ingredients and pour over the chicken. Keep it in the fridge to marinate at least 2 hours to overnight until time of baking.

Preheat oven 240°C and bake for 45 minutes. Keep an eye on the chicken and be careful not to overcook it.

The sweet smell was filling the house, I was preparing the table to take some pictures (for this post) when Antoun came in from work to have lunch. This is the most challenging part, not letting him dig in before i take the pictures. I only had 3 minutes, I don’t blame him actually, i was in a hurry too, they looked so delicious, they made my mouth water!
