Honey Carmelized Chicken

In the cold winter months I love to make baked dishes and desserts just to keep the oven on and make the kitchen, dining, and living rooms cozy warm.

I clean the oven more often in winter too for the same reason. It helps to keep my toes toasty warm.

So with the temps taking a turn downward here the last few days it was a no brainer I would make a baked chicken recipe my first recipe in 2015.

This recipe is also an easy, sweet and savory recipe that is also finger lickin’ super delicious.

You can also make this recipe using just chicken wings or legs. Wings and legs are, of course,  are perfect for all the game times this winter season.

Use an oven safe pan to bake the chicken.

This recipe can easily be doubled for six people.

Caramelization is simply the browning of food using sugar.

This is what you need for 3 people:

3 chicken breasts

2 tablespoon olive oil

¼ cup soy sauce

1 tablespoons ketchup

½ cup honey

2 teaspoon brown sugar

A splash of balsamic vinegar

2 cloves garlic pressed

3-4 green onions

Spray oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Here is what you do:

Preheat oven to 375 F

Slightly flatten the chicken breast. Not a whole lot; just a wee bit.

Mix together the oil, soy sauce, ketchup, honey, brown sugar, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper very well.

Spray an oven safe grill or roast pan with the spray oil and place the chicken on top.

Pour the sauce over the chicken making sure every piece of chicken is well coated on both sides.

Cover the pan the chicken is in with some aluminum foil.

Bake in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes, or until sauce is caramelized, checking once or twice and turning the chicken at least once during the baking. [Cook to an internal temperature of 165F.]

NOTE: If the glaze does not caramelize remove the foil for the last 10 minutes of cooking; or place the pan on the stove and fry a minute or two on both sides to get the sauce to caramelize.

Look at that gorgeous golden caramelization and color on those chicken breasts. YUM!

Wash the green onions and slice on the diagonal.

When chicken is cooked through remove to a platter, tent with foil and let sit for 5 – 10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute.

Sprinkle the finished chicken with the sliced green onions and serve with a salad and a potato dish or fries.
