I have been on a big lemon kick lately. I made the most amazing lemon bread a couple of weeks ago. I’ll post that recipe soon! But the other day I was flipping through a little self-made cookbook that my friend Barbara had made and found this recipe for Honey-Lemon chicken. It was so easy and really tasty. I cooked up some cous cous to go with it and it became a meal. Enjoy!
Honey-Lemon Chicken from Barbara
4-6 chicken breasts or 6-8 drumsticks (I like dark meat so I guess you know what I chose!)
salt & pepper
1/4 C. oil
1/4 C. honey
1 tsp. paprika
1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
2 Tbs. lemon juice
2 Tbs. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in a baking dish. Combine remaining ingredients and mix until well blended. Pour over chicken and bake uncovered for 1 hour or until tender. (It will be a little less if you are doing drumsticks.) Turn chicken and baste several times while chicken is cooking.
