Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


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.
