Honey Soy Baked Chicken


I love boneless, skinless chicken thighs! They are so full of flavor and tend not to dry out as quickly as chicken breasts can. They are a bit more expensive to buy this way but sometimes ease of cooking is worth the cost. But, you can substitute chicken breast or chicken thighs with bones in just adjust cooking times.

Verdict:

This dish is simple. Sometimes that is all that is needed. Paired with rice (I cooked mine with chicken stock and a bit of dried onion for extra flavor) with some of the sauce over the rice and chicken made for a perfectly simple dish.

We served this with asparagus and a green salad to complete the meal.

Honey Soy Baked Chicken

A simple chicken that can be paired with rice or noodles for a delicious dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  •  3 tablespoons soy sauce
  •  5 tablespoons honey
  •  4 cloves of garlic, finely minced (or substitute 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  •  1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  •  1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  •  3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs or other chicken

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Add all ingredients except chicken to a zip bag.  Add the chicken to the plastic bag, seal bag and turn chicken to coat each piece, then place in refrigerator to marinate until ready to cook. Allow chicken to marinate at least 1 hour or up to 10 hours.
  3. To cook chicken add the chicken and marinade to a casserole dish sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake chicken for 20 minutes. Turn the chicken over and cook another 20 minutes.
  4. Once chicken has cooked through serve over rice with sauce if desired.
