Sweet and Spicy Sticky Chicken




Chicken! Don we all love a simple nice baked chicken? Like always Friday nights call for a nice treat and this time I dint wanna make anything too rich and unhealthy. So I made a sticky spicy baked chicken which was pretty much all that we had for dinner.


  1. Chicken – 1 kg ( i used only legs and breast pieces)
  2. Salt – 1 tbsp
  3. Water – 2 cups
  4. Balsamic Vinegar – 1/2 cup
  5. Soy Sauce – 1/2 cup
  6. Sugar – 3 tbsp ( I used brown sugar)
  7. Honey – 1/4th cup
  8. Chilly Powder – 3 tbsp
  9. Ginger Garlic Paster – 1 tbsp
  10. Corn Flour – 2 tbsp
  11. Water – 2 tbsp


  1. Clean the chicken well and drain water
  2. Then in a bowl add salt to 2 cups water and mix well. Then add the cleaned chicken into the water and let it sit for half n hour. I do this step every time I bake chicken so that it remains nice and juicy. Usually when you bake chicken it tends to get a little dry. This step helps the chicken remain nice and moist
  3. While the chicken rests in the salt water, in another bowl combine the rest of the ingredients apart from corn flour and water
  4. Mix well to for a nice dark runny sauce. This is your marinade. Add a little salt at this stage. Also check if you want a little more heat in the marinade.
  5. Once the chicken is ready, soak the chicken into the marinade for 2 hours or over night in the fridge
  6. Once you are ready to bake, pre heat your oven to 180C and line your baking tray with foil
  7. Now arrange the chicken on the baking tray and let it cook for 20 mins
  8. After 20 mins, turn the chicken pieces over and let it bake for another 10 mins
  9. During the baking time, in a sauce pan heat the remaining marinade (after taking the chicken out) . mix corn flour with the water and add to the hot marinade. Once you see the mixture thickening, stir continuously and then switch off the flame
  10. Once the chicken has baked, pull of out of the oven and brush with the corn flour mixed marinade.
  11. Place all the pieces on your serving dish and serve while nice and hot
  12. Enjoy 🙂
