Honey Garlic Roasted Chicken

Whew, long recipe title 😛

I’m really excited to share this recipe with you. Really. Stoked to share it.

This is the chicken that we had for dinner tonight along with the spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce. Have to tell you that it’s probably the best dinner I’ve had recently. And with dinners like that, how can you ever go on a diet?

Let the photo speak for itself.

*Drum roll*


  1. 1/2 cup liquid honey
  2. 1/4 cup lemon juice
  3. 1/8 cup water
  4. 2 tbsp ketchup
  5. 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  6. 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  7. 1 tsp ground ginger
  8. dash of pepper

Combine all ingredients in sauce pan. Heat to boiling and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat then let cool. Pour over the chicken and marinate for about 2 hours before cooking in a turbo broiler.

Turn the broiler on and heat at 180degrees  for about 10 minutes before putting in the chicken. Cook at 180 for 30 minutes. Turn the chicken and cook for another 20 minutes. Lower the turbo to 150 and cook each side for 15 minutes or until brown. Check the chicken once in a while to make sure it doesn’t burn.

This chicken rocks. Totally!

      a turbo broiler works the same way as a convection/fan oven (different from a microwave oven). if it can be roasted in a turbo broiler, you can definitely roast it in your regular oven. work it out with 180C/350F. as for how long, i’d have to say i can’t tell you in exact terms. one of the good things about a turbo broiler is that it has a 360degrees clear glass body that allows me to check how brown the chicken is in all sides. the time i indicated in my post is the exact time as observed through my turbo’s clear glass. i’d say that you can follow the same length of time but do regular checks and adjustments 🙂 the key is to pre-heat the oven, lessen the time on your first turn, and lower the temperature to 150C/300F when the chicken is cooked and you’re just browning it. happy cooking! let me know how it turns out for you 🙂
