Easy to cook and delicious Baked Honey Chicken.

Baked honey chicken is a dish made from chicken marinated with honey and other spices. This dish can be cooked by baking or frying. Baked chicken is usually healthier than fried chicken. Fried chicken is a typical Indonesian food that is often found in restaurants. For baked chicken, usually, the chicken is marinated first with herbs and spices, then put in the refrigerator. The marinade ingredients used to make honey-roasted chicken include honey, oyster sauce, BBQ sauce, and a little salt. The chicken is soaked in the marinade sauce for a few hours before baking it so that the spices are fully absorbed into the chicken. Usually, it takes a long time to make baked honey chicken, because first, the chicken must be seasoned with salt and leave it for about 30 minutes before being marinated with the marinade sauce. Then the second one, marinate the chicken with the marinade sauce for 3 hours and put it in the refrigerator so that the seasoning absorbs into the chicken before baking it. One of the ingredients that make this baked honey chicken taste even more delicious is melted butter. Melted butter should be spread on the surface of the chicken that has been roasted for 15 minutes, and then baked again for another 20 minutes. The flavors of honey and melted butter blend together and produce a delicious taste. Almost everyone likes baked honey chicken because it tastes so delicious. It is usually complemented with cucumber or other vegetables and can be eaten with warm rice too.
