Baked Honey-Lime Chicken

This recipe is from Good Housekeeping’s “Best Chicken Recipes” cook book.  The recipe says to use drum sticks, but I adjusted in and used chicken tenders.  The glaze got very dark and crunchy on the pan, but the chicken did glaze nicely and stayed moist.  Sadly, I was out of aluminum foil so my pan was a mess.  If you are making this with chicken tenders, I would maybe suggest cooking it at a slightly lower temp than it calls for.  It may also work a little better if you do actually use the drum sticks.

3 limes, plus wedges for garnish

1/4 cup honey

3 small garlic cloves, minced or crushed

1 tsp gound coriander

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper

24 medium chicken drumsticks, skin removed or I used about 1 1/2 chicken tenders

1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro, chopped

Prepare over to 450.  From limes grate 2 tsp peel and squeeze 1/4 cup juice.

In small bowl, with fork mix honey, garlic, coriander, salt, pepper, lime juice and 1 tsp lime peel.

Arrange chicken on jelly roll pan.  Drizzle lime mixture over chicken, toss to coat evenly.  Bake for 30-35 minutes (I did about 15-20 minutes with the tenders), turning and brushing with glaze occasionally.

Transfer chicken to serving dish.  Drizzle with pan juices.  Sprinkler with cilantro and remaining lime peel.
