This is another one of my mom’s recipes. She used to make it in the microwave since we didn’t have an oven growing up. I’m not too fantastic with microwave cooking so my initial attempt to replicate her recipe away from home resulted in a charred mess. Oops! Mr. Cooking Jar loves teasing me about it now. “I’m going to make my mom’s honey roasted chicken” “You mean irradiated chicken?”. Some things you’ll never live down.
I’ll use an oven this time round and figure out the temperature and cooking time. I will endeavor not to make you charred chicken! Done well, this dish is absolutely delicious with crispy savory skin and honeyed sweetness.
