Recipe Ingredients for LOW FAT HONEY GLAZED CHICKEN LEGS

2 lbs chicken thighs
2 lbs chicken legs
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. honey
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic
1 tsp. ginger
2 tbsp. sesame seeds

Recipe Directions for LOW FAT HONEY GLAZED CHICKEN LEGS

  1. Remove skin from chicken pieces and cut off excess fat. Combine soy sauce, honey, oil, garlic and ginger. Place marinade with chicken in a food storage bag placed in a low bowl. Close bag and refrigerate for several hours or overnight, turning the bag occasionally so all the pieces are covered by the marinade.

  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan or shallow baking pan with foil. Remove chicken pieces from marinade and place on foil. Discard marinade. Bake for 25 minutes.

  3. Turn chicken pieces over and increase oven temperature to 400 degrees. Continue to bake for 20 to 25 minutes until chicken is done. Remove to a plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired. Let cool slightly before refrigerating or freezing.
