Roast Honey Boneless Chicken


Succulent boneless chicken leg meat embraced under the thin honey coated skin 😋 Probably a good substitution for a roast turkey for a small family 🍗😍

Servings: about 2 to 4 persons

2 boneless chicken leg, about 430~450g

5g hua diao jiu/chinese cooking wine
4g low-sodium fine salt
6g dark brown sugar
dash of pepper powder
dash of ginger powder
dash of garlic powder
10g oyster sauce
1/4 tsp dark soy sauce
1g potato starch
2g sesame oil

Basting sauce
remaining marinade
15g honey


1. Rinse boneless chicken leg meat.

2. Coat the meat with hua diao jiu/rice wine. Rub the meat with salt, then followed by the rest of the marinating ingredients.

Seal the bowl with cling wrap and let the meat marinate for about 2 to 4 hours.

3. Cut two cotton threads with length of about 1 meter.

Roll up the meat, wind and tie with a cotton thread.

4. Sear the meat with skin down over a thick base pan lined with a piece of parchment paper.

Lower the heat, and sear the remaining sides of the meat roll for about 2 minutes each.

Finally, close the lid, and let the meat simmer for about 30 minutes.

5. While waiting, mix the remaining marinade with honey for basting later.

End of the 30-minute simmering

6. Transfer the meat rolls to a roasting plate.

Brush the meat rolls with a thin coat of honey, and roast in an oven toaster at 170℃ for about 8 minute. Repeat the process till using up the honey basting sauce. When the skin starting to char, reduce the temperature to 150℃.

Reduce the oven temperature to 150℃ when the skin starts to brown

Let the meat rolls rest in the warm oven toaster for about 15 to 20 minutes after the roasting process ends.

7. Untie the thread and slice the roasted chicken rolls into thick chunks.
