Honey Roasted Chicken

Oh my goodness.

Last night for dinner we defied the St. Patrick’s Day rituals of corned beef and cabbage and instead had honey roasted chicken.

It was amazing.

I found the recipe in a magazine my mom gave me :: Where Women Cook. The best part about it – aside from being simply delicious – its that it’s so very easy.

Seriously, if I can recommend one thing it would be this chicken. Try it for yourself, you won’t regret.
