The Baking Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • splash olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced very finely or pressed
  • garlic-sized piece of ginger, grated

In a small saucepan, splash the olive oil. Add garlic & ginger and cook over medium heat for a minute. Add brown sugar, and whisk together. Add liquids, increase heat, and whisk as it boils. Continue boiling for a few minutes until the mixture thickens.

Drain chicken from marinade. Arrange chicken pieces into a single layer in baking sheet. Pour thickened sauce over chicken.

Optional – sprinkle with sesame seeds

Bake at 375 for 1 hour. You can turn them after 30 minutes.
