Sweet as Honey

Tonight I was to host a honey tasting and dinner, however due to schedule conflicts, it was cancelled. However I did get a couple recipes from bloggers who shared dishes using honey as a main ingredient! Of the bloggers, the winner of the blog event giveaway is Kim of Live, Love, Laugh, Eat! Kim won a great cookbook called, Covered in Honey. Hopefully it will inspire her to use this great ingredient more. Congratulations Kim!

Cathy Twomey’s Chicken
submitted by Kim of Live, Love, Laugh, Eat!

2 lbs. bone-in, skin-on chicken
1/2 cup clear honey
2 tsp. curry powder
2 tsp. soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Whisk all marinade ingredients together in a small saucepan and heat over low heat till well combined. Cool. Season chicken with salt and pepper; loosen skin with fingers and make two one-inch cuts in skin (do not cut meat) to allow marinade to get to meat. Pour marinade over chicken and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

There are various ways to cook this. It’s done when an instant-read thermometer reads 160 degrees F.

In a skillet or saute pan: Brown chicken well on both sides, turn heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes till done.

In a grill pan: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook chicken on both sides in oven-proof grill pan (I used cast iron), till well marked. Place pan in oven and bake for 20 minutes or till done.

Sweet Baked Tortilla Chips

recipe adapted from Amber's Delectable Delights

Tortillas (any size)
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray
Cinnamon Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a pizza cutter, cut the tortilla in half. Cut in half again. Then cut each half in half. You should end up with 8 pieces per tortilla.

Take a tortilla and spray it lightly with butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Arrange pieces on a pizza pan in a single layer. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until tortillas are crisp.

Drizzle with honey.

Variations: -Also great baked with apple butter on top.
