Servings: 6 people
  • 10-12 chicken legs
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grab a 9-inch by 13-inch (2-3 inches high) baking dish and cover the bottom and the sides with foil and spray vegetable oil on the foil. Place the chicken legs evenly over the bottom. Make the sauce by measuring the honey, soy sauce, and garlic into a medium saucepan. Cook it over medium heat until the mixture is combined and smooth. You can also cook it in the microwave.

    Pour the sauce over the chicken legs until covered completely and bake for 45 minutes (uncovered). After 45 minutes remove the pan from the oven and turn the chicken legs over and turn the oven temperature up to 425 degrees F. and bake for another 15 minutes. You will see the sauce start to caramelize on the chicken. It's so good!! Remove from the oven, let the chicken sit/rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with the sauce over cooked rice, enjoy.

    Please use a meat thermometer to test the largest piece of the chicken leg, when it registers 165 degrees F. on an instant thermometer, it's done.
