|Honey Soy Chicken Breasts|
We are all about great easy workday dinners here at Rock Recipes and this one takes just a few minutes to prepare a 5 ingredient marinade in the morning or the previous evening to have this chicken ready to pop into the oven when you arrive home from work. Only about 45 minutes open roasting time is all these golden sticky chicken chicken breasts need; more than enough time to throw together a great salad, steam rice or prepare your favorite noodles. If serving with noodles or rice, I recommend doubling the marinade/sauce recipe.
Originally published on Nov 6, 2012.
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup light soy sauce
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
4 cloves minced garlic
1 tbsp finely grated fresh ginger root
To a large Ziploc bag add:
4 large chicken breasts, (not boneless, skinless)
Pour the marinade over the chicken and store in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
Place the marinaded chicken breasts on an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees F, uncovered, for about 45 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.
Do not throw out the marinade. While the chicken is cooking simmer it over low heat and brush it on the chicken about every 10 minutes as it cooks.
