Honey Ginger Glazed Chicken

For the main course for Dino’s parents’ birthday dinner, I made a dish that was a big hit at our Supper Club a few months ago. This is pretty easy to put together, but definitely double the recipe if you want it to serve 4 people. There aren’t a lot of veggies or anything else bulking this dish up, so it goes fast. And when you double it, be aware that it’s going to take longer for the glaze to thicken. Just a friendly FYI 🙂 I served this over some steamed jasmine rice, and it was a big hit, once again!

    I made a honey ginger chicken for me and my two sons about a week ago. My recipe was a little different though. Similar ingredients but used dark sunflower seed oil, orange zest, honey, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce as a marinade then baked the chicken while I drained the marinade of the solids and used water and cornstarch with it to make the glaze. Then broiled the chicken with the glazed until browned. It was a hit as well. I think your way would have been much easier to get a similar result though.
