Honey Mint Glazed Chicken

2013-02-14

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 4-5 pound chicken, cut into parts
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2-3 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint (or 2 Tbsp dried mint)

Method

1 Place chicken pieces in a bowl. Mix vinegar with olive oil and pour over chicken pieces. Turn chicken pieces so that all are coated with the simple marinade. Let marinate for 30 minutes to an hour.

2 In a small bowl mix honey, mint, and just enough water for a good basting consistency. Set aside for glazing the chicken.

3 Prepare grill for medium high heat. Remove chicken pieces from marinade. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Place chicken pieces on the hot grill, skin side up. Cook for approximately 30-40 minutes, covered, turning every 7 or 8 minutes. For the last 5-10 minutes of cooking, baste all sides with the honey mint mixture. The chicken is done when the juices run clear (not pink) when a knife tip is inserted into both the chicken breast and thigh, about 165°F for the breast and 180°F for the thigh. Note that although the breast pieces are bigger, they may finish cooking earlier than the thighs.

    My old friends from school are coming to visit tomorrow.
    i want to cook a special dinner for them.
    Any ideas?

    I tasted them and they were delicious, but i believe its only the breaded skin that makes all of that wonderful taste since the chicken inside tastes like normal chicken. Any1 by any chance work at one of Canada’s pizza pizza stores and can tell me so i can save some money as they are quite expensive; $7.99 canadian for 10 pieces to be exact/94 cents per each chicken bite piece.

    I am the cook in our home. I just took a job in which I won’t be home Mon-Fri until 7pm. So, this is past dinner time, especially since I have a 1 and a 7 year old. My SO does not cook much and will have to make dinner from now on.

    I need bunches of ideas that are either A.) Easy to throw in a crock pot during the day and will be eaten by picky kids, OR B.) My SO can quickly and easily throw together (again, for picky kiddos). I would like them to be relatively healthy. And, we are on a budget.

    Thanks!

    Let the games begin!
    Amit- I know, right! :-) I think I’m in trouble here.
