“Just found this on the allrecipes.com website and am saving it here (with some variations) so I remember to try it. They recommend serving it over rice. I am planning to double the recipe, but only use 1 1/2 the amount of the sauce. Cooking time here includes an hour of marination.”

  1. In a medium bowl, blend the olive oil, soy sauce, honey, and vinegar. Mix in the thyme, paprika, cayenne pepper, allspice, and black pepper.
  2. Place chicken in a medium baking dish, and coat with the olive oil mixture. Let marinate at least one hour, or even longer. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
  3. Place chicken in a preheated 375F oven, and, basting occasionally with the olive oil mixture, cook 30 minutes, or until no longer pink and juices run clear.
  4. Serve over the rice with remaining olive oil mixture.
