Honey Sesame Baked Chicken
For this Honey Sesame Baked Chicken I baked it and continuously baste with a mixture of soy sauce, honey and sesame oil. The initial marinade makes it!

Servings: 2 servings
- 2 lbs chicken drumsticks and thighs
- 1/4 cup soy sauce separated
- 2 tbsp dry sherry
- 2 tbsp ginger paste (ground fresh ginger)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp Chinese Five Spice
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- cilantro leaves chopped
In a small bowl whisk together a 1/4 cup of soy sauce, sherry, fresh ginger paste, brown sugar and Chinese Five Spice. Set aside.
Place chicken in a container that can be covered or a Ziploc bag with the marinade. Allow to marinate at least 1 hour or overnight.
Arrange chicken in baking dish or on sheet pan and take a pastry brush and baste with honey mixture.
Place the chicken in the oven for 40 minutes, basting a couple of times during roasting (every 10 minutes, optional). The chicken will get sticky and tender. Remove them when golden brown and fully cooked through (internal temp of 165°F).
Serve topped with any left over glaze, or pan juices from baking pan, sesame seeds and chopped cilantro.
