Yields4 Servings
Prep Time10 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time40 mins

 2 lbs bone in chicken pieces, my preference for this dish would be drumsticks
 ½ cup soy sauce
 ¼ cup brown sugar
 3 tbsp ginger, finely shredded
 1 tbsp garlic, minced
 1 tbsp sesame or other oil
 1 tsp black pepper

1

Combine all the marinade ingredients together in a large container or a Ziplock bag. Add chicken pieces and toss to ensure they are well coated. Marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight. This is perfect to make the night ahead and quickly turn into a flavourful quick weeknight dinner the next day.

2

When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400. Place chicken pieces on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 20-30 minutes. The internal temperature should reach 170-175 (although it's safe to eat at 165, the abundant connective tissue in the dark meat will remain tough until at least 170 internal temperature is reached.)

3

While the chicken is baking, strain the marinade into a small pot, throw out the solids. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook on medium low to thicken the sauce, so that this sauce could be served along the chicken. Just a reminder, raw chicken was marinating in this sauce, so it's important to ensure it's fully cooked.

4

Serve the chicken with the thickened sauce. You can even brush your chicken with your now cooked sauce. Enjoy.
