Don't let my lack of pictures today put you off of this recipe. I find the lighting in the winter months very poor for picture taking . . . and they don't always come out like they should . . .
I took quite a few photos of this deliciously moreish chicken, but only a few came out looking scrumptiously tasty!!!
Each luscious piece of chicken is stickily scrummy with a rich honey glaze and just a little bit of a spicy tang. Simple enough for a family dinner . . .
but exotically tasty enough for company!
I like to serve this with a nice dish of Pilau Rice and a green vegetable on the side, but suit yourself. Your family will love this, no matter what you serve it with. That's a fact Jack!!!
*Honey Glazed Chicken*
Serves 4 to 6
Nicely browned and moreishly sticky!
2 ounces flour (scan't 1/2 cup)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
3 pounds of chicken pieces
4 ounces butter, melted and divided (1/2 cup)
45g of soft light brown sugar (1/4 cup packed)
2 ounces liquid honey (1/4 cup)
2 ounces lemon juice (1/4 cup)
1 TBS soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
Whisk together the flour, salt and cayenne pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken pieces and dredge or shake to coat.
Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4. Place half of the butter into a baking dish, 13 inches by 9 inches. Place the chicken in it skin side down, turning once to coat with the butter. Bake for 30 minutes in the heated oven. Turn skin side up.
While the chicken is cooking, whisk together the rest of the melted butter, sugar, honey, lemon juice, soy sauce and curry powder. Pour this mixture over the chicken. Bake for an additional 45 minutes, basting and turning every 15 minutes until done. The chicken should be nicely browned and very tender.
