Honey Soy Chicken Breasts

The sweet smell of all-day, marinated chicken baking in the oven is delectable to the senses. 

This simple, melt in your mouth, Honey Soy Chicken is perfect for your easy week night menu and truly doesn't require a lot of attention or clean up (YEAH!!!) 


4 chicken breasts 
1/4 cup honey 
1/3 cup light soy sauce 
1/2 tsp ground pepper 
4 garlic cloves, minced 
1tbs ginger, grated (I omitted this because I didn't have it) 

Whisk together the honey, soy sauce, pepper, garlic, and ginger in a small bowl. 
Place chicken breasts in a zip lock bag and pour honey-soy mixture over the chicken.
Give it some good shakes and place in the fridge to marinate a few hours/over night--pretty much until your ready to cook it. 

Preheat oven 375 
Place marinated chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet (easy clean up, told you!) and brush some of the sauce over the chicken. 
Bake for 45 min. 
Take the extra sauce and place it in a small sauce pan on LOW heat to simmer. 
Brush sauce on chicken every 10 minutes until chicken is fully cooked through. 

 Serve with some Fried Rice and/or veggies.
