Simple, easy, delicious chicken recipe

This recipe is so simple, so delicious – guests were raving about it. In my search for a Scottish recipe to take to Robert Burns 250th birthday party this weekend I came across this recipe. I made about 16 chicken thighs. I seasoned the chicken pieces well with salt and pepper and browned them off in the original 4 tablespoons of butter and transferred them to my large casserole dish. I tripled the honey and lemon juice but only used 4 full sprigs of fresh rosemary. I like working with chicken thighs because they remain moist and are more flavorful. You can choose any type of chicken pieces you want.

Honey Lemon Chicken

4 chicken pieces
salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
2 ounces (½ stick) butter
4 tablespoons clear honey (1/4 cup)
3 tablespoons lemon juice
4 sprigs fresh rosemary

Sauté pan
Dutch oven or oven-ready casserole dish with lid

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Heat the butter in a sauté/frying pan and brown the chicken on all sides. Transfer the chicken to lidded casserole. Drain off fat from your sauté/fry pan and add the honey, lemon juice and rosemary sprigs and boil it for a few minutes and pour over the chicken. Cover the casserole/Dutch oven and put it in the oven for approximate 25 minutes.

The recipe is from have made adjustments.

TIP: When you are asked to brown chicken or any other product you want to do this with high heat. You will know the product is ready to turn when it no longer sticks to the pan.

Do you have a tasty, simple, rave-receiving chicken recipe you are willing to share?
