This honey roast chicken recipe by Terri-Ann’s Kitchen on YouTube shows how to make an easy weeknight chicken dinner meal. This can be served with a side of rice, and it’s baked to perfection. The carrots are perfectly roasted, and glazed. If you are cooking this for yourself, this is a great meal prep recipe to have during the week. Also, you can serve this with a side of rice, and an extra side of veggies. However, you can add more vegetables to this recipe to bake all together in one baking dish.
First, add the washed chicken drumsticks in a bowl. In a separate bowl, add sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, allspice powder, mixed spice powder, mixed herbs, smoked paprika powder, honey, and olive oil. Use a small whisk to mix everything together and set aside. Peel the carrots and chop them into pieces.
Next, add the carrots and marinate sauce to the bowl of chicken. Let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours so the seasoning can be mixed together. Then, transfer the chicken and carrots to a baking dish and cover with aluminum foil for the first 30 minutes.

Overall, I love how she basted the chicken throughout the process of cooking because it added nice brown color. Plus, it kept the chicken moist. Honestly, that is one of the techniques that I use when I cook the chicken too. Chicken can be tricky and over cooked if not cooked right, but also you do not want to under cook it.
