Candied Garlic Chicken | MomsTestKitchen.com | #SecretRecipeClubWelcome to May’s Secret Recipe Club reveal! This month I had the fun of getting to pick a recipe from the wonderful blog written by Rebekah – Making Miracles. I had never been introduced to Rebekah’s blog before but in reading about her, I am humbled and amazed by this woman! I won’t tell her story, but if you’ve got some time, you should definitely go over & meet Rebekah!

Candied Garlic Chicken | MomsTestKitchen.com | #SecretRecipeClubAs I was looking through Rebekah’s recipes, there were quite a few that caught my eye to try out. She has an amazing list of recipes to pick from! She has been blogging since 2006 so this shouldn’t have surprised me! 😉 I finally decided on her Candied Garlic Chicken, partly because the simple flavors of the dish sounded like they would be delicious but also because the simple list of ingredients meant I didn’t have to go shopping to make this dinner! SCORE! 🙂

Candied Garlic Chicken


  • 1 & 1/2 pounds chicken thighs - I used skin on bone in
  • 1 cup honey divided
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce divided
  • 4 cloves minced garlic divided


  • Place the chicken in a large Ziploc bag. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup honey, 1 tablespoon soy sauce & 2 cloves minced garlic. Add the honey mixture to the Ziploc bag with the chicken & gently toss to coat. Let the chicken marinate in the fridge for at least an hour - I let mine sit overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the chicken & marinade in a large baking dish (I used a foil throw away one from the Dollar Tree for easy clean up). Cover the dish with foil and bake the chicken for 40-45 minutes, or until cooked through. Turn the heat up to 425 degrees, remove the foil from the pan and cook the chicken for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the chicken has browned.
  • While the chicken is cooking, simmer the remaining 3/4 cup honey, 3 tablespoons soy sauce & 2 cloves minced garlic in a small saucepan until the sauce has slightly thickened.
  • Serve the chicken hot with additional sauce spooned on top. I served mine with rice & carrots - both delicious with the extra sauce!

  1. Candied garlic chicken? Sounds fantastic! I’ll have to make this soon (after my mom, who is very garlic sensitive, goes back home after caring for me while I’m on bed rest)!

  2. I did the same thing with my last two reveal days – just used what I had on hand…which is almost completely unheard of for me to do. I’m such a planner. The chicken looks bombtastic!! Great pick for reveal day 🙂

  3. this type of chicken is my favorite, I do a similar recipe, but unfortunately I .
    have to go light on the garlic – I bet ginger could go well here too…

    Happy Monday Reveal Day!
