Indonesian Ginger Chicken

This is a simple five ingredient recipe that is easy and delicious. Thanks Janet Mollat for the recipe!

1 c. honey
3/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. minced garlic(8 to 12 cloves or 2 to 3 tsp. dehydrated)
1/2 c. peeled and grated fresh ginger root(or 1 tsp dry ginger)
2 chickens(3 1/2 lbs each), quartered, with backs removed

Cook honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger root in a small saucepan over low heat until the honey is melted. Arrange the chicken in a large, shallow baking pan, skin side down, and pour on the sauce. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Marinate overnight in refrigerator.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the baking pan in the oven and bake for 1/2 hour. Uncover the pan, turn the chicken skin side up, and raise the temperature to 365 degrees. Continue baking for 30 minutes or until the juices run clear when you cut between the leg and the thigh and the sauce is a rich dark brown.

I will have to give this recipe a try. I like recipes that have just a few ingredients.
