Honey Soy Chicken is as delicious as its sister Holy Soy Chicken, but the taste is different! Asian and playful!



  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 ½2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, (most of the fat cut and discarded)
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 8×8″ oven-proof pan with 2 layers of tin foil. I HIGHLY advise using foil in this dish because soy sauce & honey are STICKY and tend to adhere heavily on glass dishes when cooked at high temperatures. Unless you want to be scrubbing forever, use the foil!
  2. In small bowl, whisk together vegetable oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, garlic, ground ginger, and pepper.
  3. Place the chicken thighs in the foil layered pan then pour the mixture on top of it. Turn the chicken around in the sauce to make sure it gets all coated.
  4. Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes, checking occasionally to make sure the tops are not browning too quickly. If they are, cover with foil and resume baking until chicken is done.
  5. Remove from oven and let chicken sit for 5 minutes then transfer to a plate. Do NOT discard the liquid.
  6. Immediately after plating chicken, pour sauce over top of chicken. It’s delicious so you want all the sauce you can get!
  7. Serve with white or brown rice and some steamed veggies.
