Easy Oven Honey Baked Chicken Recipe

This chicken recipe uses honey and I think honey is an excellent sweetener. Especially if you can get hold of some fresh raw honey that hasn’t been heat treated. Raw unheated honey keeps alot of its health benefits. I happen to be very fortunate where I live as I have access to raw honey cultivated locally.

The type of honey I especially like is Mankua renowed for its extra healthy immune boosting and healing properties. Ok so whats so great about honey. Well it has anti=bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammotory properties just to name a few, and oh yeah it tastes good too.

So feel free to use as much of this natural sweetener as you like. Did you know that even the bible itself makes reference to a little honey being good for you. So what better reason to use honey and especially with this chicken dish.
