Chicken, Homemade

Honey Garlic Chicken 

Hi everyone. Hope you are all doing great today, if you aren’t by any chance, just remember duchess o is thinking of you and praying for you that your day will be bright and cheerful. 😀

Let me tell you about this chicken. Where do I even begin. Ok, let me just say it is delicious. No more no less. 

Just in case you all don’t know, Let me update you all….. I love chicken. I will choose it over meat any day! I mean what’s not to love? Lol. 

I have made plans to ensure that there will be lots of chicken recipes on my blog. This will help you choose what type of chicken you want to pair with any meal. It just makes life so much easier and I am here to help as much as I can. 

Ok let’s get started 🙂


  • 4 chicken legs (not feet)
  • 1 teaspoon of Black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of Salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon of Vegetable oil
  • 1/8 cup of Soy sauce
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of fresh grated Ginger 
  • 2 tablespoons of Honey (adjust to preference) 
  • 1/4 cup of Water


  • Frying pan
  • Baking dish

Prep time: 15 minute

Cooking time: 45-55 minutes 

Total time: 1hr-1hr:15 minutes


Clean the chicken (see the note below)

Please note: when cleaning the chicken, do not just clean it directly in your sink. Clean it In a bowl of water and discard the water later on: 

How to discard: please pour the water in your drainage outside or in your loo. Please do not pour it down the sink. This is how salmonella spreads. 

Once the chicken is clean, season it with salt and black pepper. Set it aside (covered) for 5 minutes 

After 5 minutes,heat up the oil

once hot add the chicken. Sear it on both sides for 5 minutes each 

After searing. Remove from the frying pan. (Set the frying pan aside for use later)

Place it in a baking dish and cook in the oven for 30 minutes.

On the 27th minute mark whilst the chicken is baking, make the sauce. 

In the same frying pan used to make the chicken, add the grated ginger and garlic. Fry on low heat for 30 seconds

Next add the water 

Add the honey

And then finally add the soy sauce. Mix together and let it heat up

As it heats up, it will thicken a bit. That’s totally fine. 

Remove the chicken from the oven. 

And the pour the sauce all over it. Change the oven mark to grill. Allow it to grill for 10 minutes 

After 10 minutes, it should look like the picture below.

If it doesn’t, grill it some more for like 3 minutes. Remember honey and soy sauce is in it, so be careful not to over grill or else it will burn. 

That’s it you are done. 

Yummy succulent chicken!

Enjoy! I paired it up with creamy coconut rice. Yum yum

That’s it from me today, 

I’ll see you all in my next post.

Love Duchess O.
