How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a large roasting pan lightly with cooking spray.
  • Combine the flour with the salt, cinnamon, turmeric, black pepper, and a pinch nutmeg.
  • Coat the chicken pieces well with the flour mixture (you can use chicken with or without skin on- it's up to you).
  • Beat together the egg and milk; dredge the flour-coated chicken pieces in the egg mixture, then into the breadcrumbs.
  • Arrange pieces skin side up (if using pieces with skin) in the sprayed roasting pan, making sure that the pieces are not touching each other (if possible) to ensure they bake crispy; spray chicken pieces with oil spray or sprinkle with 2 tablespoons oil and place the chicken in the oven to bake.
  • While the chicken is baking, in a saucepan over medium low heat combine the butter, honey, pinches of cinnamon, and lemon juice.
  • After the chicken has baked for 25 minutes, pour the butter and honey mixture generously over the pieces.
  • Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the juices run clear and the chicken is crisp and brown.
  • Note: if you'd like to add a bit of kick to the recipe, you can try a pinch or two of cayenne (to taste) in the honey sauce, or perhaps some red pepper flakes. :).

    " It was good "
    strollernut ate it and said...
    Just made this for dinner, it was good! I made it with boneless skinless chicken, because that's what I had, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The taste reminded me of dipping chicken nuggets in honey as a kid! LOL My three year old loved the sauce, he kept asking if he could drink it! :) What I'll change for next time...I think next time I'll make the honey butter sauce in advance, and use it as a marinade for the chicken as well...the breading and sauce was tasty, but the chicken itself was lacking a little. Or maybe I should have pounded the chicken pieces flatter so there was more breading to chicken ratio? Also, I made it in a 7x11 Pyrex pan as that's what fit my 3 chicken breasts without crowding...I should have used a bigger pan, I think the sauce came up too high on the chicken and kept it from crisping--user error on my part for sure!
    At any rate, I'll definitely make it again, but possibly with a short marinade to the meat beforehand.
