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!
