Honey Glazed Chicken Legs

Yum. This recipe is one of those that when you make it, you crave it again the next day and the next and the next. Tender, juicy chicken seasoned with a honey barbecue-like sauce. Melt in your mouth tender. I served it with steamed frozen green beans and these garlic smashed potatoes and it was the perfect combination. Seriously, make this dish. It's out of this world good. Enough said.

*Serves 4-5 people

*This dish can be put together ahead of time. Just follow the steps to put it together and instead of baking immediately, let the chicken legs marinate in the sauce for up to 24 hours before baking. When ready to bake, rotate each chicken leg and bake as directed in the instructions.

2-1/2 lbs. chicken legs
3/4 Cup honey
1/2 Cup soy sauce
1/4 Cup ketchup
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 F. Sprinkle chicken legs with salt and pepper on all sides. Put them in a foil-lined baking dish with high sides (foil is optional, but nice for easy clean-up). Measure honey in glass measuring cup and microwave for 30 seconds. This will soften the honey and make it easier to combine in the next step. Add soy sauce, ketchup and minced garlic and stir well. Pour sauce over chicken legs. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and rotate each leg so that saucy side is up. Return chicken to oven. Increase oven temperature to 425 and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and starts to caramelize on the chicken. Remove chicken from oven and let rest 5 minutes before serving.
