Sticky Honey Soy Chicken
One of my favorite dishes to make for my family is various kinds of baked chicken: ginger garlic baked chicken, baked Hoisin chicken, honey lemongrass baked chicken, and this amazing, moist, and super delicious baked honey soy chicken.
It’s one of the easiest chicken recipes ever, and everyone loves it.

Ingredients to Make Honey Soy Chicken
This Asian-flavored chicken recipe calls for very simple store-bought ingredients. These days, you don’t even have to go to Asian supermarkets or stores for Asian ingredients.
Sauces and condiments such as oyster sauce and sesame oil are widely available at the international food aisle, so you have every reason to whip up this amazing baked honey soy chicken for your family.
The chicken is tender, juicy and bursting with the sweet and savory flavors of soy sauce and honey. For deeper flavors, I always add minced garlic and ginger to the chicken.
Both ginger and garlic infuse the chicken with pleasant aromas. The chicken is best served with steamed rice.

I love the taste of the chicken I made using this recipe. I’ve made it a few times but I can’t seem to get enough sauce as per the pictures. What can I do to get more sauce?
Hi Wyanon, you may double the sauce ingredients.
can this be marinated overnight
I prefer white meat. Would this work with chicken breast?
Baked chicken came out very yummy! passed the recipe along because guests loved it! Thank you for such a simple and easy recipe!
Thanks for trying my baked honey soy chicken.
I think it will be a good food item. will definitely try this.
Hi recipe sounds amazing..can a dry ginger be used?if so a 2 inch piece would be how many teaspoons?
I wouldn’t use dry ginger for this recipe, just use garlic then.
I made this last night for the family. We doubled the recipe and it turned out great.
Looks amazing! Question: When it’s too hot to use the oven, could this work as a stovetop or crockpot meal….with the final 2-3 min in the broiler to brown the skin?
Totally yes you can. :)
ME AGRADA TODA LAS RECETAS ESTA DELICIOSA . SALUDOS MUCHAS FELICIDADES
Honey, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic sound like a great combo of flavors! Great idea for an easy, tasty meal.
