Chicken Recipes



Chicken in honey soy sauce is a delicious combination of sweet and sour flavors.  The mix of the salty intensity of soy and the sweetness of honey creates a balanced dining experience.  This dish is characterized by its juiciness and the irresistible caramelization of the sauce during cooking.


8 chicken thighs

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup honey

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)

Black pepper to taste

Chives or chopped green onion to decorate (optional)

Toasted sesame seeds to decorate (optional)

Marinate the chicken in a mixture of soy sauce, honey, garlic and ginger for at least 30 minutes to enhance the flavor.  Cook over medium heat to achieve a caramelized glaze, but avoid overcooking to maintain juiciness.


• In a large bowl, mix the soy sauce, honey, minced garlic and grated ginger.  Reserve some of the mixture for later.

• Place the chicken thighs in a resealable bag or deep bowl.  Pour most of the soy-honey mixture over the chicken, making sure it is well coated.  Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (you can let it marinate longer for more flavor).

• Preheat the oven to 200°C.

• Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Remove the chicken thighs from the marinade and place them in the pan to brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.

• Transfer the chicken thighs to a baking sheet.  Pour a little of the reserved marinade over each thigh and sprinkle with black pepper to taste.

• Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the chicken thighs are cooked through and golden brown.  You can turn them and brush them with more marinade halfway through the cooking time.

• If desired, before serving, drizzle the chicken thighs with a little sesame oil and garnish with chopped scallions and toasted sesame seeds.

Ready!  Now you can enjoy delicious chicken thighs in soy and honey sauce.  Enjoy!
