Valentine’s Dinner – Honey Glazed Chicken

HoneyGlazedChickenEd note: Now that I’m an empty nester, I’m going to serve this delicious main dish to my girlfriends who are celebrating Valentine’s Day with me tomorrow night.

A very simple and elegant main dish for Valentine’s Day, Sunday’s or company. Serve with Brown Rice Pilaf, or quinoa, and steamed broccoli.  For Valentine’s Day, maybe a strawberry salad.

In a plastic bag, mix together:

1/2 C whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°.   Oil a 9 X 13 inch baking dish with 2 TB of olive oil. Dip 3 pounds of cut up chicken in a little skim milk to moisten. Drop each piece into the mixture in the plastic bag and shake to coat well.

Arrange pieces evenly in the baking dish and bake for 35 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine:

1/2 Cup honey
1/3 Cup lemon juice
1 TB tamari or soy sauce
2 tsp. curry powder

Pour this mixture over the chicken and bake an additional 45 minutes or until done. Baste occasionally. Serves six. Double or triple as needed.
