Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a baking dish with vegetable cooking spray.
In a small bowl whisk together the first 7 ingredients until smooth. With a pastry brush, brush chicken pieces with mixture just to coat. Set aside remaining mixture.
Arrange chicken in single layer in prepared bakind dish. Bake uncovered about 45 minutes, basting occasionally with pan drippings to brown.
Remove chicken from pan and place on a warmed platter. Add reserved Cajun mixture to pan drippings. Heat well. To serve, spoon some Cajun sauce over chicken pieces. Mix remaining sauce into hot rice.
