Caramelized Baked Chicken Legs or Wings Recipe

Here's another one of those GREAT recipes for all you chicken lovers! The marinade is so fast to put together. You can marinade for a couple hours or just pour over the chicken and baste periodically while baking. The marinade caramelizes all over the chicken and is just so flavorful and good. I would definitely try this recipe with wings for a great appetizer! 

What you need:
2 pounds chicken legs, thighs or wings
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil (prevents sticking)
1/2 c. soy sauce
2 tbsp ketchup
3/4 c. honey
3 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Place chicken in a 9x13 baking dish, lined with aluminum foil. Mix together the olive oil, soy sauce, ketchup, honey, garlic, salt and pepper.

3. Pour mixture over chicken and bake for about 1 hour or until sauce is caramelized, basting or turning chicken every 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
