  • 10 Chicken legs
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup organic honey
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 mild salsa


  • Step 1: Preheat your oven to 180 degrees. Lay each chicken leg out on a foil-lined baking dish with high sides. Having a high-sided sheet pan is the best option because it keeps everything in, and it's big enough that the chicken isn't drowning in the sauce. This will help to caramelise your chicken legs when the chicken is poking out of the cause whilst cooking.
  • Step 2: Grab a measuring cup and add in your honey, low sodium soy sauce and salsa. Add your garlic and stir this all in till combined. If you find the mixture isn't combining well, place it in the microwave for 30 secs and stir again. Pour your mixture over the chicken legs.
  • Step 3: Place this into the oven and bake this for about 45 minutes. Take this out of the oven and turn your chicken legs around.
  • Step 4: Put your chicken back into the oven Raise the heat up to 220 degrees and bake this until the sauce is bubbling and you can see the chicken starts to caramelise. This should take about 15 minutes.
  • Step 5: Remove the chicken from the oven, and allow it to rest for about 5 minutes before serving. You can serve this with some steamed rice, jasmine, basmati or brown rice. Place your chicken legs on top with some extra sauce from the pan. Add some steamed or roasted vegetables to round out the meal.
