Tequila Lime Chicken Drumsticks

I was flipping through some Martha Stewart magazines and found this recipe in it’s “clean eating” section. Can I tell you it is the most amazing chicken flavor I have every tasted! I’ve cooked these about 4 times already and have also used the recipe for chicken breasts and strips. Delicious! I will give you the recipe for about 5-6 drumsticks, but it should also be enough for 8-10. Be sure to make extra, because these taste great the next day! You won’t be disappointed 🙂

Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients including chicken into a ziplock plastic bag. Mix well and keep out at room temperature for 1 hour, turning bag occasionally. (Place bag in bowl or similar in case of leaks).
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Place each drumstick on a parchment lined baking sheet making sure that the marinade drips off into the bag first.
  4. Place leftover marinade in saucepan, but don’t turn on the heat yet.
  5. Bake chicken for 32 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.
  6. While chicken is baking, turn on stove top to high heat to thicken the leftover marinade. Bring to boil until it reduces and is a thickened glaze. About 15-20 minutes
  7. Transfer chicken to a plate or platter and brush each drumstick with the glaze and serve!
Recipe Notes

Use with chicken breasts instead of drumsticks. Bake for 24 minutes. Original recipe called for safflower oil, but any oil should be fine. Original recipe recommended baking for 40 minutes. I found my oven only needed 32 minutes. Test a piece first before eating!

Quick & Easy Honey Mustard Chicken Strips

Want a recipe where you don’t need to measure anything? Try this! You can’t really screw it up if you put too much or too little… I made a batch of Homemade Honey Mustard dressing this week for a Waldorf Chicken Salad, and wanted to use it for a marinade. I had 6 skinless chicken breasts in the frig, so I decided to marinade them in the morning and have for dinner that night and leftovers the next day. They were tasty cold as well!

Instructions
  1. Cut/slice desired amount of chicken breasts into strips and place in zip lock bag. If the chicken is really thick, I would butterfly it first.
  2. Put Homemade Honey Dressing into ziplock bag until chicken is coated and place in frig to marinade. (I do this in the morning and cook for dinner.)
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  4. Pour breadcrumbs into the zip lock bag with marinated chicken or place into small shallow bowl and dip each marinated chicken breast in the crumbs and lightly shake off the excess.
  5. Place the chicken breasts on prepared baking sheet and bake for about 15-17 minutes.
  6. Turn the oven to broil, and continue baking for another 3-5 minutes until the chicken has evenly browned.
Recipe Notes

Use any kind of breadcrumbs such as brown rice crumbs or try some dried coconut flakes. If you don’t have broil option on oven, just cook for 20 minutes and turn chicken over half way through (optional). Before baking, you can give the chicken with a quick spray of olive oil. I recommend purchasing one of these oil Misto’s rather than PAM spray.   It will pay for itself after a few months – we love ours!
