Honey Tips

Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Melt butter in a small pan. Dip each chicken breast in the butter then in the breadcrumb mixture. Place breasts on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
Grate the peel of the oranges and lemons. In a medium sauce pan squeeze the juice from the lemons and the oranges. Add the grated peels and remaining ingredients. Stir until well mixed. Bring to boil over medium/high heat. Lower heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Serve over the chicken.
