Hung fu Chicken.....Recipe Swap

Gayle is hosting a frugal recipe swap here on her blog each Friday and I thought it would be fun, and also great to hopefully breathe some new life into our family cuisine. I have been running a little too close to empty on ideas lately. Now the ingredients for this recipe are very simple, and for this post I am calling it Hung Fu Chicken! (and hoping I haven't said something bad in another language! LOL) Our usual name is er...."Honey/Soy Chicken".....but Hung Fu just sounds so much more authentic!

Hung Fu Chicken

3-4 lb of chicken thighs/drumsticks
2/3 cup honey
2/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp ginger (optional)
1 tsp garlic powder (optional)
Throw chicken in a large casserole dish, mix together rest of ingredients (slightly warm honey if needed), and pour over the chicken. Bake for about 45 - 60 mins at 375*F turning once (this is just for an even colour). Add a little cornstarch/water to the sauce to thicken, and serve over brown rice with a side of vegetables. (usually broccoli for us!)

And there you have it! Now head over to Gayle's and leave your frugal recipe so that I can steal it too! Help me! I need new recipes!

This sounds so yummy. It's so easy to find chicken thighs cheap and they are always so moist.

This does sound really good. I wonder if you could use chicken breast??
