Honey Garlic Chicken

A quick and easy chicken dish that pleases both grown up and more child-like palettes. The best part of this dish is its simplicity.

4 - 6 pieces chicken (thighs or drumsticks, enough to feed four people)
1/2 cup honey
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 400oC. Place chicken in oven safe dish (I use a glass Pyrex dish). Mix together honey, garlic, and olive oil. Drizzle over chicken. Flip chicken to ensure that the meat is fully covered by the sauce. Bake in the oven for 20 - 30 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked. My husband also recommends basting the chicken every five minutes to ensure that the meat is perfectly golden-brown when it is done cooking.

I served with roast potatoes (you can cook these in the oven with the chicken) and steamed broccoli. Yum!
