Ginger-Soy Roasted Chicken Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon ginger grated
  • 1/2 tablespoon Garlic chopped
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon canola oil plus extra, to drizzle
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 kilo chicken leg quarters about 4 pieces
  • 1 bundle Leeks
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 200 Grams asparagus
  • Salt to taste
  • sesame seeds toasted


  • Combine ginger, garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce, canola oil, and pepper in a bowl. Pour mixture over chicken, cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Remove chicken from the refrigerator 10 minutes before roasting.
  • Trim stalks of leeks and separate the leaves. Place leeks on a baking pan, making a bed. Drizzle with extra canola oil.
  • Place chicken on top of leeks. Roast, uncovered, for 40 to 50 minutes or until cooked through. (You can cover the chicken with foil during the last 8 to 10 minutes of cooking to prevent the skin from burning.)
  • Meanwhile, heat sesame oil in a frying pan over high heat. Fry asparagus for 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Remove chicken from the oven, garnish with sesame seeds, and serve with asparagus.
