1 tablespoon honey
50 g (2 oz) butter, softened

4. When the chicken is, turn off the oven and leave the chicken to stand for 10 minutes before removing it from the oven and cutting into portions.

Serve with: boiled rice mixed with 1 tablespoon of chopped, preserved ginger and 1 tablespoon of the cooking juices.
