Honey roasted chicken with honey and lemon.

Summer is officially over. Well almost! When you live in Arizona you never feel as your summer ends.
We have had a fantastic summer and this year we decided to take the summer off to enjoy some great travels and spend as much time with family as possible. With that said we also had a great time eating our way thru our vacation. No guilt eating, is the best!
While home, we made it a point to prepare some new fun dishes in our kitchen as well as some old time favorite recipes.
I will start with this new recipe, “Honey Roasted Chicken with Lemon and Garlic” that I have found in an old magazine long ago. I have modified to our taste and also due to the fact that we were not able to locate some ingredients. Isn’t that the fun of cooking after all? Creating, been adventurous with new flavors and most of all… have fun.
The strong flavor of the garlic and the lemon, required some side dishes that will blend well together while not overpowering each other. Milk peas and lime cilantro rice were just that, perfect side dish. The cumin from the rice blended well with the cilantro in the rice. The pea’s light and tender flavor was the perfect balance between them. Love it and could not get enough of it.
Do not be taken back by mi picture of the Roasted Chicken, the skin got a bit caramelized too much, however the flavor was not just perfect. Juicy chicken breasts, soft caramelized garlic.
A great meal for the whole family that is easy, delicious and a bit different.
Enjoy!

  • 2 large skin on and bone breast of chicken
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cut into quarters, rind separated lemon
  • 1/4 cup good quality honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 10 crushed and halved garlic cloves

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.

  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and sprinkle cumin both under and on the skin. Carefully tuck 2 quarters of lemon rind under the skin of each breasts. Pour honey under and over the skin of each

  3. Heat a large 10 inch cast iron skillet over medium high heat for a few minutes. Add the oil and the butter to the skillet. When the oil is hot and the butter melted, add the chicken skin side down. Arrange the garlic in the pan so the cloves all make contact with the bottom. Cook for 7 minutes, then turn the chicken, skin side up and transfer the skillet to the oven. Roast until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes.

  4. Remove the skillet from the oven, and let the chicken cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Serve the chicken cut off the bone with all the caramelized garlic pieced and the thick sauce underneath it.
