With only a handful of ingredients and minimal effort, Baked Honey Soy Chicken will quickly become a family favorite. It’s super tender, flavorful, and healthy. Perfect over a bed of fluffy rice.
I let myself be interrupted today.
Instead of sitting down to write this post like The Schedule said to, I allowed myself to be lured away into the great outdoors by my 3 favorite boys. It hit 60F today and it’s the last day of March. The sound of laughing children and chirping birdies begged me to let. it. go.
So I did. I don’t often do interruptions well. Today I did. It was past sunset by the time my busy brood hustled back home.
After biking, running wild, and basketballing, the boys were ready for a second dinner…
I didn’t say seconds of dinner. I said a second dinner.
We aren’t even into the teen years yet. I am very afraid.
Thankfully, I had just enough leftovers to feed those hungry tummies. My dad taught me how to make this ridiculously easy Baked Honey Soy Chicken when I was a kid. To this day, Dad still rocks this dish for my boys whenever we make a trip back home.
It’s always a hit. Always.
Of course, Dad doesn’t use recipes, and his chicken turns out fork-tender and scrumptious every single time. I’ve tried watching him cook, but I always have to come up with my own measurements because no, I cannot remember the exact color and thickness of that sauce by my plain eyes.
[Why do they cook like that…?!]
After years of trying to replicate it, this is the closest I’ve come to cloning Dad’s non-recipe.
This chicken is tender, full of flavor, and perfect over your favorite rice. Enjoy.Print

Here are a few other homegrown, tried-and-true recipes we think you’ll love:
1. Asian Sticky Rice. When I make this, it has to be a huge pot full. Because that’s how quickly it’s devoured.
2. Asian Potstickers. Made healthier with ground turkey/chicken in lieu of pork, these are amazingly delicious and always the first appetizer to disappear.
3. Asian Shrimp Stir Fry with Snow Peas. One of my favorite weeknight stir fry dishes. Light and healthy, yet packed with rich flavors. Succulent over a bed of fluffy white rice.
4. Garlic Soy Braised Chicken. Braised in a delicious sauce, this chicken comes out tender and mouthwatering.
5. Fish with Black Bean Sauce. I used to love ordering this at my favorite Chinese restaurants. Once I started making it at home, I’ve never bothered with takeout again. Homemade is way healthier and scrumptious.
