Simple baked chicken

I saw some chicken thigh with very good price. Somehow, I remembered the grilled chicken my mom used to make when I was young.

So, I called her for the recipe.

It sounds easier than what I have thought.

So, I decided to get my hands dirty in the kitchen on Sunday.

I deskinned 2 chicken thigh.

Then, rubbed a mixture of salt, powdered ginger, powdered garlic and ground black pepper. (My mom used all the fresh seasonings.)

Let it marinated for about 1 hr. Drained excess liquid.

Rub honey just before baking (more if you prefer to be sweeter).

Baked in oven at 325 degree F for about 15 min on each side. Then, brushed some oil on the surface and increased temperature to 375 degree F to continue baking process until outer layer turned into a grilled brown. Checked to make sure an even baking on both sides.

My 1st experience on making a baked chicken. :P

The low temperature retained the moisture and softness inside while the higher temperature turned the outer layer into a more crispy and slightly burnt texture.

It was a piece of good chicken. I should do this more often. I will. Next time, I am going to try with curry powder instead. :P

Hey Fish Fish, use hi temp to burn a crust the lower the temp. The crust will trap the moisture.

Fish Fish,

Looks and sounds so taste. Instead of brushing it with oil at the final step, try brushing it with butter. How sinful is that!!!

johnny : I can cook one for you next time. ^_^

janice : This version of mine quite dry. No sauce. But good suggestion, I might grill some carrot and bell peppers in the future with the chicken. ;)

cooknengr : Ee? How come you said the different thing with my mom one? Who should I believe?

kaye~ys : Oh, really happy to hear she get the posting. Hope she knows the place soon. Yap, I remember her bd. Thanks anyway.

lance : Haha... that's the reason why I didn't use butter although I know it will be more scrumptious. :P
