Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.

Marinade:
In a small bowl whisk together all ingredients. Pour into a glass baking dish. Add chicken and turn to coat with marinade. Refrigerate 2 hours or up to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
Dressing:
Whisk together dressing ingredients. Set aside.
Remove chicken from marinade and grill or broil until just cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat and cut each breast diagonally into 1/2-inch slices.
