My family can't get enough of this finger-lickin'-good chicken, and I often double the recipe. The sauce can also be used when grilling chicken. —Harriet Lusch, Muncie, Indiana


  • 2/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2/3 cup sherry or apple juice
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 broiler/fryer chickens (3 to 4 pounds each), cut up


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first seven ingredients. Add chicken; seal and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Place chicken in two greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dishes. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until juices run clear.
