  • 1/2 cup good quality balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons finely minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 young chicken cut into 8 pieces
  • salt and pepper


  • Pour all ingredients except chicken in a shallow 9x13 inch baking dish. Mix well with fork or flat whisk.
  • Salt and pepper the chicken on both sides then place chicken in dish and turn to coat with sauce. Turn chicken skin side down.
  • Turn oven to 425. (I don't preheat the oven because I like the chicken to marinate for the few minutes it takes the oven to heat.)
  • When oven is ready, roast chicken skin side down for 30 minutes. Remove dish from oven and turn chicken over.
  • Roast chicken skin side up for another 10-15 minutes, until chicken is done and skin is well-browned.
