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.

Am intrigued by this, haven't tried it yet, and I am an INA DIEHARD, think I have done almost everything she has, but I thought, too this was too much sweet with the savory when I was reading it...what do you think, should I give it a try? Love all the ingredients and yours looks lovely.
