Garlic-Roasted Honey Chicken

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 40 min.


6 servings

This roasted chicken is one I usually serve as a "treat" supper on weekends. I'll also make it sometimes for company. Everyone says they love it—there rarely are any leftovers. —Michelle Bouchard, St. Jean-Baptiste, Manitoba


  • 6 medium chicken drumsticks
  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs (about 2-1/4 pounds), skin removed
  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 12 extra-large unpeeled garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup honey


  1. Place the chicken, potatoes and garlic in a large roasting pan. Pour butter over all and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until a thermometer reaches 180°, basting frequently with the pan juices. Heat honey; drizzle over chicken. Remove the chicken, potatoes and garlic to a serving platter; keep warm. Pour drippings and loosened brown bits into a small bowl; skim fat. Serve with chicken, potatoes and garlic.
