Simple and delicious,this honey lemon chicken are easy to make requiring just a few pantry staples.

Sticky sweet&savory,accompanied with a citrusy kick,it  is an instant crowd pleaser,so easy it is to bring this together and in less than 30 minutes you are done.

This chicken can be done on a grill pan,skillet or an outdoor grill,however for this recipe I decided to go for the oven as its convenient and requires little or no cleanup afterwards.


2 chicken legs
(Separate the drums from the thighs,you can take off the skin but I like how crispy they get when done)

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon soy sauce

Juice of half a lemon

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper


In a Bowl mix in all your ingredients

Wash your chicken with running water and pat them dry.Pour the honey lemon marinade over the chicken

Toss the chicken around making sure every part of the chicken is coated in the delicious honey lemon sauce

Transfer this to a baking tray lined with aluminium foil

I went ahead and placed lemon slices on top of each piece for an extra citrusy bitter flavour however this is totally optional.

Cover this up with an aluminum foil creating a pocket for the chicken to cook in

Have this cook in a pre heated oven at 200℃ for 20 minutes.Take it out of the oven

Turn your oven to broil and set your chicken back to char the skin Crispening it in the process, this should take 2 to 3 minutes

Serve hot with a side of your choice
