Tonight’s Goode & Gooseberry Project Recipe is Skillet Honey Chicken.
I was so excited to find this recipe in Mom’s Favorite Recipes because I just finished working on a project about a local honey farm and this was the perfect excuse to pack up the fam and head over to Hunter’s Honey Farm to get some fresh honey!
We had such a GOODe time checking out all their honey GOODies!
They even had an indoor observation hive to check out all the bee action!
Reminds me of the hive my Biology teacher, Mr. Anderson, had in our classroom…
While there we picked up some clover honey, orange blossom honey, bee pollen, raspberry gourmet spun honey, honey almond soap and some honey stix… and Puddie then bought some honey baklava and honey ice cream before we got out of there!
And lookie what I found there! Some of Butterflies, Gourds and More’s painted masterpieces!!!
After we got our GOODeS, we headed home and passed some busy bee hives on the way…
It is a farm after all, and farms never stop workin’… just sayin’
Once I got home, I got down to BEESness cooking up some Skillet Honey Chicken 😉
So I grabbed a couple tablespoons of butter…
And added a couple tablespoons of orange blossom honey
I then jazzed it up a bit with a little orange zest.
I heart zesting up citrus… it packs such a punch!
Then I cut some chicken breasts to half their thickness, threw them in and browned both sides.
And put a lid on it until they were cooked through.
I reduced the heat to low and then added 1/2 cup orange juice.
And cooked down the liquid until it became a sauce.
Now this delicious little dish got me on a creative kick, so I added orange zest to my steamed green beans and knocked my stuffing up a notch by orangin’ it up a bit…
I just took a regular stuffing mix and substituted 1/2 cup orange juice
and 1 cup chicken broth
and some more orange zest 😉
Yum, yum, yum!!!
