So different! Yes, lime, honey and black pepper makes this chicken spectacular!
Recipe type: main course,chicken
Serves: 4
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • ⅓ cup of honey
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp lime zest
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Chicken Coating:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 tbsp lime zest
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ⅓ cup margarine
  • 6-8 pieces of chicken
  1. Kick the tires and light the fires to 400 degrees.
  2. The store only had Key limes. It takes a lot to get juice out of these little buggers but I was craving a lime chicken.
  3. Whisk together all your dry ingredients for the coating in a bowl. Beat the egg in a smaller bowl.
  4. Dip the chicken in the flour first.
  5. Then in the egg.
  6. Then back into the flour for a good coating.
  7. Place on either a well greased sheet or a foil lined one. I think next time I will grease the sheet instead, it makes the bottom of the chicken crispier.
  8. Now sprinkle the black pepper over the top, I used freshly ground pepper.
  9. Chop up your garlic and zest yourself some lime.
  10. Mix all the sauce ingredients in a sauce pan and cook for a few minutes.
  11. Pour the sauce over the chicken pieces.
  12. Bake for 30-40 minutes until the chicken is done, all wonderfully golden and crispy like below.
