Oven-Baked Honey BBQ Chicken Legs

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 45 mins


  • 3 ¼ lbs bone-in chicken pieces (drumsticks, thighs)
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ½ cup honey or brown sugar
  • 6 large cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup soy sauce


  • Remove chicken from fridge and let stand at room temperature while you mix the sauce. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Measure all remaining ingredients directly onto baking sheet and stir to combine. Add chicken and turn to coat evenly, rubbing some sauce under the skin.
  • Bake in centre of oven for about 45 minutes, covering with foil about halfway through, until centre reaches 165ºF.
