Spectacular Sticky Brown Sugar Baked Chicken Recipe Is Worth the Napkins

Put a lot of napkins on the table when you serve this sweet and sticky baked chicken recipeYep, it's finger lickin' good! It's like a combination of barbecue chicken and Asian sticky chicken. (Is your stomach growling yet?)

The simple five-ingredient sauce has honey and brown sugar, so it makes the outside of the chicken sticky and irresistible. Serve with a salad and your favorite vegetable. The whole family will love this easy chicken recipe. The recipe can easily be cut in half. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 to 1 1/2 hours
Total Time: 1 to 1 1/2 hours
Servings: 4 to 6


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the ketchup, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce and garlic powder in a pot. Bring to a boil then immediately remove from the heat.
  2. Put the chicken into a baking pan. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the chicken and turn to coat all sides.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, turning the chicken over halfway through the cooking time, until chicken is cooked through. (Cooking time will depend on amount and size of chicken pieces.) Baste with the sauce occasionally.

My stomach is definitely growling, Donna John . Wow, does this look delish! 😍
Out of this world flavor here.
This was amazing. Wow! Making it again tonight for my guests!!!
Donna John
You made my day! Love hearing that.
Jacqueline Kamin
Hi! Wondering how this might shift if I only have boneless chicken on hand. Looks delish!
Donna John
Sure! Just reduce the cooking time because boneless cooks faster.
Donna what can I use in place of honey? I just was ready to make it & realized I don't have it.
Also would Worcesterhire sauce replace soy sauce
Donna John
You could use maple syrup or molasses, though it would change the flavor a bit. But would still be delicious! Not sure if Worcestershire sauce would be a great replacement for the soy. There's a lot of soy in it. Worcestershire sauce is used sparingly. Maybe tamari or coconut aminos? Hope that helps! grammieraine

Could you use a whole chicken for this recipe?
Donna John
You could. But because of the high sugar content and whole chicken taking longer to cook, I would cover it with foil. Cover at the end to brown it. Let us know how it turns out!
