Blue Ribbon Recipe

Need a new way to prepare chicken? Try this honey baked chicken. Very easy to make, once baked the chicken tastes similar to a General Tso chicken. There's a bit of sweetness and spice. Simmering the sauce and pouring it over the baked chicken, punches up the flavors when serving.

How To Make honey baked chicken

Test Kitchen Tips
If you're going to reduce the sauce, we suggest adding an extra 1/4 cup of honey to the sauce to thicken it up a little. We used a combination of chicken pieces for testing.
  • Chicken pieces in a baking dish.
    Place chicken in baking pan.
  • Sauce ingredients in a bowl.
    Combine the remaining ingredients.
  • Source poured over the chicken pieces.
    Pour over chicken.
  • Baking dish covered in foil and baking in the oven.
    Bake, covered with foil, at 350 F for the first 30 minutes.
  • Continuing to bake uncovered.
    Uncover, baste and bake for another 30 minutes.
  • Reducing the sauce.
    If you'd like you can pour the sauce into a saucepan. Simmer down to about half and then use it to pour over your chicken when served.
