This is another easy roast chicken whole leg recipe with some simple ingredients yet it is so delicious and tasty to serve with rice and a vegetable dish or vegetable salad. This makes a complete meal that is fuss free and well appreciated by the young at home.
We had this baked chicken with rice, a stir fry broccoli/mushroom dish and some freshly cut tomatoes. Awesome meal.  Too excited to enjoy my meal right away, no time for too many photo shots, hahaha!
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 77 [modified]

Kimmy, somehow the word "honey" already makes me agree that this chicken dish will be delicious!

Hi Phong Hong, the marinade ingredients blend well with each other. Especially like the lemony and sweet taste and fragrance of the grated ginger. It's awesome.

Hi Kit, these days, I just love to cook pork and chicken by baking. It's hassle-free, delicious and there are so many flavours that we can enjoy. Goes well with rice, buns and potatoes. Of course salads to the meal complete. You must try as many as possible.

Hi Joyce, these days I am really crazy over chicken cooked this way. It is so easy to prepare yet the result is awesome. I just need to choose the flavours and leave the oven to do the task and we get to enjoy freshly baked, succulent chicken meat.
