Spicy Honey Chicken
The sauce on this chicken is so good you're going to want to make this recipe often, and let me tell you it is great on any cut of chicken and makes delicious wings as an appetizer too.
What you need:
1/3 cup honey (warmed)
2 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons chili sauce (substitute with 2 tbs ketchup and a tiny amount of hot sauce)
3 tablespoons white cooking wine or chicken broth
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons paprika
1 red onion (thinly sliced, divided)
1 red bell pepper (finely chopped)
1/3 cup cilantro (finely chopped)
1 1/2 pounds chicken(you can use any kind you like including wings)
How to make it:
Warm the honey. In a large bowl, add the sugar and honey, stir to combine and dissolve the sugar. Add the soy sauce, chili sauce, wine, oil, garlic, paprika, half the onion, pepper and cilantro. Stir to combine. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Let marinate for at least 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Transfer chicken and sauce to a baking dish and cover with aluminum foil. Bake, covered, for 30 minutes.
Uncover chicken and toss in the sauce to coat. Bake for 25 minutes uncovered. Add a few more onions, toss to coat wings, and cook until crisp, about 10 more minutes.
Garnish with chopped green onions if desired
