Honey roasted chicken has always been my favorite way to jazz up chicken done in the oven. Lets face it, we all get tired of the same old food and after roasting chicken in the oven so many times, we need a way to stimulate our palette by trying something new. I’ve been using this recipe for a few years now and it never fails. As soon as I get bored with roasting chicken, this becomes my go to. Check out the process!
This recipe is for 5 chicken quarters
5 chicken quarters, skin removed. (You can also use 5 chicken breasts)
1 tsp all purpose seasoning
1 tsp chicken seasoning
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp fresh green seasoning
(Video on my youtube channel for how to make this)
2 packets of Goya sazon con culantro y achiote
4 tbsp of honey
Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Now you can remove the skin from your chicken and place it in a large bowl. Add all of your seasonings and only 2 tbsp of the honey. It’s necessary to add the honey at this point so that it combines with the chicken’s natural juices while it cooks. Massage all the ingredients into the chicken and place it into a large baking pan. Place in the oven uncovered for 1 hr 15 minutes. Make sure to baste the chicken every 20-30 minutes with the juice the chicken releases. Once 1 hr 15 minutes have passed, remove the chicken from the oven and drizzle the other 2 tbsp of honey on top of the chicken. Place it back into the oven for another 15 minutes. Remove and enjoy!
Tip: if you like a more pronounced, grilled look to your chicken then turn it up to 400 degrees for those last 15 minutes. You might want to baste it at least once during that time.
