Honey Ginger Soy Chicken

I grew up on Honey Soy Chicken wings. This version has had a new touch! This was always a favourite amongst the kids and adults alike in our family. Even my brother loved these and he took fussy to whole other level! This recipe is great with any cut of chicken especially crispy wings. I have used thighs with the bone in and skin on to maintain a moist and succulent cut once cooked. The smells in the kitchen will certainly bring everyone to the table!  Wan to add another dimension then add some red chilli’s and enjoy the kick!

This is a dish that will please even the most fuzzy eater. I have used thigh's with bone in but you can use any cut of chicken you like. Great with wings and legs.
