Carmelized Baked Chicken

This is one of my husband's favourite dishes. It's a really easy and versatile dish which can be doubled for a crowd or cut in half for smaller gatherings.

3lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 cup honey
2 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup soy sauce
Dash salt
Dash black pepper
2 tbsp ketchup

Preheat oven to 375F. Place chicken in a 9"x13" baking dish.

Mix remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix well. Pour over chicken. Bake for 1/2 hour. Turn chicken pieces over. Bake for another 1/2 hour or until sauce has carmelized over the chicken (it will be bubbly!).

Tip: I wasn't aware of this until about 2 years ago but did you know that soy sauce should be kept in the fridge? Yup. I used to keep it in the pantry along with my Worchestershire sauce and spices until one of my sisters told me that she had read the label and been surprised to find out where it should be kept. Oops! Just an FYI. You may now proceed to put yours in the fridge too ... unless you were wiser and knew that tidbit already! ;)

Hi Laurie, Can I use skinless chicken breast.

Yes you can, Auntie. :) Actually, originally the recipe said to use chicken breasts but I like using chicken thighs b/c they're smaller for the kids to eat and more moist. Breasts will work really well too.
