Honey and Spiced Glazed Chicken
Tonight I want a nice quick dinner. This recipe for Honey and Spiced Glazed Chicken, another recipe from the to do pile, I ripped this out of a Food and Wine magazine back in October of 2006. Better try it now before the paper disintegrates form age. Should take 30 minutes, we’ll see.
1/8 cup honey
1 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbs fresh lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp sweet paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 boneless skinless chicken breast
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 425°. In a small bowl, stir together the honey, garlic, lemon juice, mustard, paprika and cayenne.
Put the chicken breasts on a rimmed baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, make 2 deep slashes in each breast. Season the breasts with salt and black pepper, and then brush most of the honey glaze all over them. Bake for 15 minutes. Brush the remaining honey glaze over the chicken breasts and bake for about 10 minutes longer, until just cooked through.
Remove the chicken breasts from the oven and preheat the broiler. Brush the juices from the baking sheet onto the chicken and broil for about 1 minute, or until the chicken browns lightly.
This came out great and was within the 30 minutes as stated. The chicken was incredibly moist and had a nice sweet and heat thing happening. This is a definite keeper.
