Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This chicken recipe came out juicy and tender. The honey mustard mixture gave it some good tastiness, making us lick our fingers. I cut the honey mustard mixture in half, using a 5 lb chicken and it was more than plenty. Next time I might add some salt, pepper, and a bit more wine and vinegar, for a little extra tang. We didn’t serve it with the suggested endive and tomatoes, but can see how it would match pretty well. Thank you, Lazyme, for sharing. Made it for FYC.
