With all my new followers and the highest number of views EVER on my blog today thanks to Stuck At Home Mom, I thought I needed to get into the kitchen!
My mom couldn’t decide what to do with our chicken tonight, so I told her I would make it. So we went to the store to get the chicken. We had everything else I needed.
In a medium bowl I mixed a pinch of crushed red pepper, 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/8 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon, 1/4 cup honey (ours is special honey from West Virginia that came from hives that used to be my Grandpa’s), 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper.
I cut the chicken into bite sized pieces, put it in a big ziploc bag and poured the honey-lemon mixture in too. Next, I made sure every piece of chicken was covered evenly by sort of massaging it around through the bag. Then marinate it for half an hour.
Cook the chicken in a grill pan or large frying pan over medium high heat until the honey is caramelized on the outside of the chicken and the chicken is cooked all the way.
I served my chicken with my mom’s orzo and asparagus with garlic and parmesan. It was SOOO good and surprisingly not spicy. I thought it tasted almost as good as candy!
