H is for Honey with
A-Z Cooking with
Honey and Lemon Roast Chicken!
The Teen likes traditional Sunday roasts as well as other family recipes and home cooked food. We decided that a few good recipes under his belt could help keep the homesick blues at bay when he moves away to university and cannot get home at the weekends. The Honey and Lemon Roast Chicken recipe is ideal for a student budget too as it uses chicken pieces rather than cooking a whole bird.
The skills we decided to focus on were preparation and oven skills. The Teen is increasingly becoming more confident in the kitchen and needs less supervision.
The Teen preheated the oven to 200c/gas mark 6 and then selected a medium sized oven proof dish
First he washed the chicken pieces in running cold water and then patted them dry. He then placed them in the oven proof dish.
Next he cut the lemon in half, squeezing the juice from one half and cutting slices from the other half. He then poured the lemon juice, added the herbs and put the lemon slices on top of the chicken.
Finally he drizzled the honey over the top of the chicken before covering the dish with a lid.
The Teen placed the chicken on the middle shelf of the preheated oven and cooked it for 30 minutes. He then removed it from the oven, turned the chicken and placed the lid to one side before putting the dish back in the oven for another 10 minutes to brown off.
Before serving he checked that the meat was thoroughly cooked by inserting a skewer and making sure the juices were running clear.
And the Verdict?
A moist tasty dish that was relatively easy to make. It was ideal to serve as an evening meal or as a Sunday Roast alternative! The Teen served it with baked potatoes, vegetables and honey roast carrots which the whole family really enjoyed!
