Recipe courtesy of Ina Garten
1 cup honey
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup minced garlic (8-12 cloves)
1/2 cup peeled and grated fresh ginger root (I use a few tablespoons of ginger paste instead)
7 lbs of chicken pieces
Cook the honey, soy sauce, garlic and ginger in a small saucepan over low heat until the honey is melted. Arrange the chicken in 1 layer in a shallow baking pan, skin side down, and pour on the sauce. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 350. Place the baking pan in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover the pan, turn the chicken over and raise the temperature to 375. Continue baking for 30 minutes or until the juices run clear when you cut into it. Sauce will be a rich, dark brown.
Yields: 4-6 servings
