Best Ever Sticky Chicky

Sticky chicky or chicken or whatever you want to call it, this luscious chicken recipe has as many variations as there are chickens. Given my druthers, I would make this with bone-out but skin-on, chicken breasts. It is as good with chicken parts (drumsticks lovers take heart) and that is how we tested our quintessential ‘sticky chicky’ in the BB Test Kitchen. If you can, marinate this overnight. But if not – it is still stupendous: sticky, sweet, garlicky, tangy……great. Serve with a green salad a fluffy, coriander and cilantro infused basmati rice.

2 ½ to 3 pounds, chicken pieces (drum sticks and breasts)
4 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon crushed ginger
2 tablespoons crushed garlic (jarred crushed garlic is fine)
¼ cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup ketchup
Salt, pepper to taste
Drops hot sauce, optional and to taste

Mix everything together in a bowl and toss chicken in it. Marinate overnight OR, bake right away.

Bake in a 350 F oven for 1 ½ hours or until chicken is nicely browned and tender. Baste often.

Serves 4
