Honey Lime Chicken
Honey Lime Chicken

Ok I know that it sounds like a weird combination. It might be a little wild, or out of your usual cooking scope, but this chicken was fa-bu-lous.

If you want something that is completely different from all your chicken recipes, this is it.

Imagine how lovely this chicken tastes, crisp and tender of out the oven with a cold beer.

I didn’t have to imagine. I ate it just like that.

Oh man. Celebrate the end of summer with a cold one and some lime chicken.

You can tell I am Canadian through and through.

Everything tastes better with a beer.

Ingredients:

Sauce:

1 tsp pepper
1/3 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
1/3 cup margarine

6-8 pieces of chicken

Kick the tires and light the fires to 400 degrees.

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.

 

Whisk together all your dry ingredients for the coating in a bowl. Beat the egg in a smaller bowl.

Line up the bowl thusly.

Remember this from my crispy chicken recipe?

Dip the chicken in the flour first.

 

Then in the egg.

Then back into the flour for a good coating.

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.

Now sprinkle the black pepper over the top, I used freshly ground pepper.

Chop up your garlic and zest yourself some lime.

Mix all the sauce ingredients in a sauce pan and cook for a few minutes.

Pour the sauce over the chicken pieces.

Bake for 30-40 minutes until the chicken is done, all wonderfully golden and crispy like below.

And crack open a beer.
