This honey garlic chicken is prepared with a bit of ketchup and soy sauce marinade. Serve this dish with rice and a side of broccolini for a healthy and delicious dinner. Start with combing the ketchup, soy sauce, honey and oil and ix them until well combined.

Add crushed onions, garlic and other spices and mix them in until they are well combined into the sauce. For teh chicken pieces, place them into a ziplock bag and then pour in about three-quarter of the seasoning mixture and give the bag a good squeeze and rub so thet the chicken gets a good massage.

Let it marinate for about 2 hours so the chicken can absorb all the marinade. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes before the chicken is done marinating.

Line your baking pan with an aluminium foil then pour the chicken and its marinade into the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, take the chicken out of teh oven and turn it on the other side and pop it into teh oven for ten minutes so the other side can cook evenly.

Take the chicken out of teh oven and give it a good rub with the remaining marinade on both sides then pop it in the oven for another ten minutes. Once out of the oven, you will have a juicy, tender, delicious spicy honey garlic chicken.
