Lime and Honey-Maple Glazed Chicken

Hello September!

I think I can already smell Christmas coming not far behind you. Right now, all I can think about are Pumpkin-Spiced cookies, Hot Apple Cider and Fragrant Cinnamon in the air. I know I wasn’t able to cook much this time last year but this year I am all for trying out many Fall recipes.

Fall is not one of our seasons really, so why not  just experience it through food and cooking? Great idea, right?

I know you would agree.

The other day, I planned on making lime and honey glazed chicken. I found my honey in the fridge all hard and sugary, good thing I have a bottle of honey-maple syrup. It’s a bit thinner than honey but I kinda had a vision that the maple syrup would bring a different yet great flavor to this chicken recipe so I went ahead and used it.

And I was right!

Sis said she couldn’t tell the difference but I could. There’s this strong but pleasant aftertaste that the smoky maple flavor leaves in your mouth. This is a recipe definitely worth repeating.

…and now, back to watching Spartacus…

…yeah, I’m into gore, and violence and blood… that’s where I get my inspiration to create soft and serene food photos..LOL!

Lime and Honey-Maple Glazed Chicken
 
Ingredients
  • 6 chicken pieces
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp lime juice or calamansi juice
  • sesame seeds for garnish
Directions
  1. In a large bowl, combine soysauce, honey, maple syrup and lime juice. Mix well.
  2. Add chicken pieces and make sure each chicken is coated with marinade.
  3. I marinated my chicken for a day in the refrigerator. The longer you marinate it, the tastier it would become.
  4. Roast chicken in the oven at 200° for 40 minutes or until it brown and cooked.
  5. Baste chicken with marinade every 10 minutes. It will create a beautiful glaze.
  6. Sprinkle with sesame seeds for garnish before serving…

    These look amazing.  My kids love chicken drum sticks so much I make them once a week.  Usually my marinade is Meyer Lemon, honey, soy, ginger, etc.  I gotta try your recipe soon.  Sounds just as delicious and I can always use some new ideas.  Take care and thanks for sharing.
