  4. Bake 30 minutes.
  5. Baste with pan juices and then drizzle with honey.
  6. Bake 15 to 20 minutes more, or until cooked through.


  • Use bone-in chicken breasts instead of chicken legs.
  • The spice mix is also nice to rub on roasting chicken or pork loin or leg roasts.
  • Drizzle such roasts with the honey near the end of cooking so it does not scorch.
