1 cup honey
¾ cup soy sauce
¼ cup minced garlic (8 to 12 cloves)
½ cup fresh ginger root, peeled and grated
2 chickens (3 ½ pounds each) quartered, with backs removed
Cook the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger root in a small saucepan over low heat until the honey is melted. Arrange the chicken in a large, shallow baking pan, skin side down, and pour on the sauce. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the baking pan in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover the pan, turn the chicken skin side up and raise the temperature to 375 degrees. Continue baking for 30 minutes, or until the juices run clear and the sauce is a rich, dark brown.
