BB: Indonesian Ginger Chicken
Our first Barefoot Blogger recipe for 2010 was Indonesian Ginger Chicken, chosen by Todd of A Cooking Dad. This was similar to the recent Daring Cooks challenge in that we marinated the chicken in a mixture of honey and soy sauce and literally a ton of garlic and fresh ginger.
I halved the recipe for two of us, and used boneless chicken thighs instead of a whole chicken. After the chicken marinated overnight, it was easy to pop it into the oven and bake it. I also put in a pan of vegetables to roast at the same time, making it a really easy dinner to fix.
While this was a delicious meal, my daughter thought it was way too sweet, and I tend to agree with her. I make a similar marinated chicken dish with honey, but use only a tablespoon or two at most, and it is perfectly balanced.
I’m curious to read what the other Barefoot Bloggers thought about this one.
