Bone-In Sticky Chicken
This sticky chicken recipe is easy and delicious and perfect for any bone-in, skin-on chicken. Cooks entirely in the oven with an easy stir-together sauce.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 6


  • (2 1/2 - 3 lbs.) Bone-in Skin-on Chicken Breast
  • 5 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 4 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 4 Tablespoons honey
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce, low sodium recommended
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely mined or 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Sesame Seeds for garnish optional


  • Optional marinating: You can place the chicken pieces in a plastic zipper bag, pour the sauce into the bag and shake to coat. Refrigerate to marinate up to 8 hours before cooking.
  • Preheat oven to 350F (regular bake setting/not fan assisted).
  • Pat chicken pieces dry with paper towel and season lightly with salt and freshly ground pepper. Place into an oven-safe baking dish.
  • Prepare the sauce by stirring together all the sauce ingredients. Pour sauce over chicken pieces to coat.
  • Place uncovered into preheated oven and cook for 1 1/2 hours, basting with the sauce every 30 minutes (so after 30 and 60 minutes of cooking). At end of cooking, if you like, switch oven to Broil (without raising rack) and broil 1-2 minutes to brown up a bit.
  • Serve garnished with sesame seeds, if desired.

Bone-in, skin-on chicken is specified and highly recommended as the long oven time will may dry out boneless or skinless chicken. The fat from the skin also prevents the glaze from cooking off in the pan. You can use bone-in chicken breasts, bone-in chicken thighs or bone-in drumsticks or try a mixture of several cuts.
