Better Homes and Garden Chicken Cooking For Today Copyright 1993
8 chicken drumsticks and/or thighs (about 2 pounds total)
¼ cup finely chopped green onion
¼ cup honey
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Dash ground red pepper
Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Arrange chicken pieces in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan making sure pieces do not touch. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine green onion, honey, garlic powder, and ground red pepper. Brush chicken pieces with honey mixture. Return to oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes more or till golden brown and chicken is no longer pink.
Makes 4 servings.
The lead-in to this recipe calls this chicken 'zingy' or maybe 'zippy' but it's neither, IMO. The onions, garlic and red pepper didn't cut through the sweetness of the honey enough for my taste. I haven't really been feeling the love for chicken-on-the-bone lately either. So I rate this as just okay.
TGIF! I'm drained. I'm looking forward to a 3-day weekend. Maybe I'll finally get the recipe archives caught up.
Blast From The Past:Baked Chicken With Honey And Mustard from May 2006. Now that recipe had enough zing to please me.
Question of the Day: What do you like on baked chicken pieces? Just dry spices? Barbecue sauce? Something else? Absolutely nothing?
