"ATW80DS" - Indonesian Ginger Chicken

We really enjoyed this recipe even though I think it would be better grilled. We served saffron rice and sauteed spinach with it.


1 cup honey
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup minced garlic (8 to 12 cloves)
1/2 cup peeled and grated fresh ginger root
1 (3 1/2 pound) chicken, quartered, with backs removed


Cook the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger root in a small saucepan over low heat until the honey is melted. Arrange the chicken in 1 layer in a shallow baking pan, skin side down, and pour on the sauce. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the baking pan in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover the pan, turn the chicken skin side up, and raise the temperature to 375 degrees F. Continue baking for 30 minutes or until the juices run clear when you cut between a leg and thigh and the sauce is a rich, dark brown.

 Because we got a great deal on bulk chicken this week, plus adding the rice & spinach as the sides... After doing all the math, the dinner including dessert (see next week's recipe) came to $4.96.
