Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 teaspoons liquid honey
  • 4 cloves garlic smashed
  • 1/2 white onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 16 chicken drumsticks
  • 16 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs

Method

In glass measure, whisk together lemon juice, soy sauce, oil and honey; stir in garlic, onion and hot pepper flakes.

Pour half of the marinade into shallow baking dish; add half of the chicken, tossing to coat. (Make-ahead: Freeze remaining marinade and chicken in airtight container for up to 1 month; thaw in refrigerator then roast as directed.)

Refrigerate, turning occasionally, for at least 4 hours or for up to 24 hours. Roast in 425°F (220°C) oven, basting 3 times, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 35 minutes.
