Ginger Garlic Baked Chicken (rasamalaysia)

1 1/2 lbs chicken drumsticks
1 2″ piece ginger, peeled and chopped
5 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 T soy sauce
1/2 T oyster sauce
1 T honey
1 t sesame oil
3 heavy dashes white pepper
pinch Chinese five spice powder (opt)
pinch of salt

Add ginger and garlic to the chicken and gently rub them on the chicken. Add the rest of the ingredients to the chicken, stir to mix well so the chicken drumsticks are nicely coated with all the ingredients. Set aside to marinate for at least 30 min or best for 2 hours in the fridge. Preheat oven to 375 F. Line baking sheet with foil and bake for 30 – 40 min in the middle of the oven, or until the surface turn golden brown, slightly charred and inside is cooked through. Serve warm. Note: If the ginger and garlic are burned on the surface of the chicken, scrape them off before serving. You may cover the chicken with aluminum foil to prevent the surface from getting too dark. You can do that in the middle of baking the chicken, once the chicken surface has turned dark but the inside is still not cooked.
