Question by dragynwinds: Anyone have any SIMPLE recipes for honey chicken?
By simple, I mean that half the ingredients I would love to have are not on my shelves. I have no garlic (powder or cloves), no soy or teriyaki sauce (but I have worschester sauce) and a few random spices like cinnamon. I also have no vegetable or olive oil, just butter. Can anyone help????

  1. My family raves over this nicely browned chicken. The rich honey glaze gives each luscious piece a spicy tang. This dish is simple enough to prepare for a family dinner and delightful enough to serve to guests.

    * 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    * 1 broiler/fryer chicken (about 3 pounds), cut up
    * 1/2 cup butter, melted, divided
    * 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    * 1/4 cup honey
    * 1/4 cup lemon juice
    * 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    * 1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder

    In a bowl or bag, combine flour, salt and cayenne pepper; add chicken pieces and dredge or shake to coat. Pour 4 tablespoons butter into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan; place chicken in pan, turning pieces once to coat. Bake, uncovered at 350° for 30 minutes. Combine brown sugar, honey, lemon juice, soy sauce, curry powder and remaining butter; pour over chicken. Bake 45 minutes more or until chicken is tender, basting several times with pan drippings.

  2. Hot Honey Chicken

    1/2 cup honey
    1/4 cup hot pepper sauce
    1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    4 bone-in chicken breast halves, with skin

    Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
    In a small bowl, combine the honey, hot pepper sauce and ground black pepper and mix well. Cover each chicken breast with the sauce and put on the grill, basting occasionally.
    Grill for 10 to 15 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C). Chicken will have a nice, brown color from the sauce.

  6. Sorry but I think you need to make a trip to the grocery store.

    This is the simplest honey chicken recipe I have and it is delicious. But it needs things you apparently don’t have.

    Sorry I can’t be more helpful.


    Chicken in the Heather
    “Doc” Hudson

    One whole chicken, minus giblets or two Cornish game hens,
    or chicken pieces
    3 fluid ounces (6 TBS) light cooking oil
    4 fluid ounces (half cup) clear heather honey
    Salt and pepper (freshly ground black pepper if you have it)
    3 ounces (6 TBS) Grainy mustard
    Half teaspoon curry powder
    One clove chopped garlic

    Place the chicken in an oven-proof casserole dish. Mix all the other ingredients together and pour over the chicken. Cover the dish and cook in a pre-heated oven at 375*F (190* C or Gas Mark 4 for folks on the metric system, and Britons) for an hour. Baste the chicken thoroughly with the juices and sauce and return to the oven for another half hour uncovered. The chicken will brown as a result. Serve with boiled or creamed/mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables, or on a bed of rice.

    (This has become one of my favorite chicken recipes. I cooked it on TV, and we served it at a Board of Trustees Dinner to rave reviews. Editor)
