This is such an easy recipe! I got this recipe from my Grandma years ago. I do it from memory, so I'm not sure if I've changed a couple things from hers, but it tastes the same and that is all that matters to me. :)
*Disclaimer- This is not a diet recipe. But it's so insanely good that you won't care...
Time:Prep time: 1 day before 30 minutes, day of 10 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour 20 minutes
What you'll need:(recipe can be altered to your needs)
3 lbs of chicken, best with skin (I like to use drumsticks and thighs)
2 cups soy sauce
1.5 cup white sugar
1/2 medium onion sliced
3 cloves garlic minced
2 tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp lemon juice
Directions:Night before- In a large bowl, mix soy sauce and sugar, and stir very well. Add onion, garlic, ginger, pepper, & lemon and mix. Then add chicken and try to submerge in sauce as much as possible. Allow to marinate over night.
In the morning- Pull out and mix chicken around so that the pieces on top are now on bottom and covered in sauce. That way all pieces are able to soak up the sauce.
Ready to cook- Preheat oven to 350. Put chicken in a baking dish (you may need 2) so that the bottom is face up and pour sauce over. Cook 40 minutes then flip so that the chicken is now right side up. Cook another 30 minutes. Cut one piece of chicken to make sure that it is thoroughly cooked (no pink). Then turn oven up to 400 and cook 10 more minutes.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes then serve with sides of choice. We like to pour the sauce over steamed rice.
If you decide to make this, I hope you enjoy! Thanks for reading! Take care and God bless!
