Honey Soy Chicken

Once upon a time I was one of those people who bought sauces to pour over chicken to make a tasty meal.  This recipe was one of the first I attempted to make from scratch so I could save a little money and reduce our consumption of preservatives.  Once cooked,  the chicken is tasty,  sticky and worthy of licking your fingers.  

3 tablespoon of plain flour 
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
Dried onion flakes
Dried chives
Pepper to taste
Garlic powder or granules
Chicken pieces – any piece will do.
Aprox. 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Coat the chicken pieces in flour.
Brown the chicken in a fry pan with the olive oil.  Transfer to an oven dish.

Melt the honey in the microwave for 20 seconds until runny.  
Add the soy sauce and stir.  
Using a pastry brush,  brush the sauce over the chicken pieces 
Sprinkle the seasonings over the chicken.
Cook covered in the oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius   
Turn the chicken over,  baste with the juices and cook for another 20 minutes uncovered. . 
Serve with rice or mash and vegetables.

Ready to eat
Browned and seasoned
Half way through cooking in the oven.

Oh dear so many thickeners, stabilisers, colours, flavours, antioxidising agents as well as preservatives. You chicken looks delectable....and it is real food.
