With a lip-smacking savory goodness reminiscent of barbecued chicken and its flavorful marinade, this recipe combines the usual ingredients of a Pinoy barbecue sauce—ketchup, garlic cloves and soy sauce—and mixes it with honey instead of sugar for a healthy baked dish that cooks gently in the oven in its own juices and the sauce, retaining the moisture and tenderness of the chicken meat while coming with a ready sauce that’s absolute heaven to spoon over your rice as you eat. Whether you’re using chicken legs or wings for this recipe, don’t skimp on the olive oil added here, as you don’t want the meat to stick to the pan and burn while it’s in the process of caramelizing. This is great with steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes, and will satisfy even the pickiest eaters thanks to its piquant sauce and familiar taste.
