  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 5 garlic cloves halved
  • 6 chicken quarters
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds optional
  • 1 green onion sliced optional


  • Combine the vinegar, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce in a large bowl. Whisk until honey has dissolved.
  • Pour mixture into a large resealable plastic bag. Add garlic cloves.
  • Add the chicken and seal the bag with as little air as possible in the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for two hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place the chicken on a greased foil-lined baking sheet or casserole dish. Reserve marinade.
  • Bake until the chicken skin is caramelized and slightly crispy, about 30 to 35 minutes.
  • In the meantime, place the marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 15 minutes. This will help thicken the sauce and kill any bacteria that can cause food poisoning.
  • Add cornstarch, 1 teaspoon as a time, until sauce reaches desired thickness. The sauce will continue to thicken once removed from the heat.
  • Remove chicken from the oven. Brush on sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
