Honey-Soy Glazed Chicken Legs

This is a new recipe I tried from Everyday Food. If you like honey with your chicken, this may be for you.

I had a fairly strong honey, so it really stood out and the soy was in the background. It was a very easy recipe, and since I was puttering around in the kitchen, basting them every 10 minutes wasn't a big deal.

I dished up the remaining cooking liquid as a dipping sauce, but it ended up being to sweet, what was on the chicken was plenty. I wonder what it would be like with a little ginger added?

Honey Soy Gazed Chicken Legs

1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
8 skinless chicken drumsticks (about 3 pounds total)
coarse salt and ground pepper

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Line a shallow roasting pan or 9-by-13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil. In a large bowl, mix together honey, soy sauce, and 1/3 cup water. Add chicken, and toss to coat; season with salt and pepper. Put chicken and honey mixture in prepared roasting pan.

Bake chicken, basting with juices from edges of pan every 10 minutes, until well browned and registers 165 degrees, 30 to 40 minutes. Serve chicken drizzled with pan juices.

Jaynie, these look delicious and they're quick and easy as well. That's a hard combo to beat.
