Friday Food: Baked Honey Glazed Garlic Chicken

Not being a gourmet chef by any stretch of the imagination this is one I've made, didn't mess up and it tasted fantastic while also being a relatively healthy meal.

Some small tweaks to make it even more healthy for you.  When adding the honey try and pick some up from a local source.  Local honey can help you deal with allergies by allowing your immune system to deal with the allergens in the honey and build immunity to them.  Instead of shallots, salad onions would be another solid choice to add if going for a more "Bulletproof Diet".  Get the freshest pepper you can find that you can grind.  It saves on the processing and honestly just tastes that much better.

This is a great meal to add to a salad, any vegetable of your choice or my new personal favorite a cauliflower mash.


Baked Honey Glazed Garlic Chicken

2 Raw Chicken Breasts (5oz)
1 Tbsp Natural Honey
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 Chopped Shallot
2 Minced Garlic Cloves
1/2 Tsp Dried Basil
1/4 Tsp Pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken in a foil-lined baking pan. In a measuring cup add all of the ingredients and pour mixture onto the chicken and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Cooking Tip - The best type of chickens to buy are 'free range' chickens or "natural grain fed" chickens. Although a little pricier, these chickens are fed natural grains, and allowed to run free, unlike the 'conventional chicken' that are grown in cages and fed growth hormones.
