Honey Sage Chicken

May 12, 2009

I love cooking and have been in the kitcken since I can remember. I also enjoy entertaining family & friends. My friends offen joke around and call me "Martha." Summer entertaining has always been my favorite. I'm always mixing up different ingredients to marinade or rub on meat, poultry and vegetables.

The honey and sage work really well together. This recipe has all the great components for a great marinade. The base, olive oil, honey for sweetness, the lemon juice for citrus and the sage to round all the flavors together.

The glaze really makes the chicken. It brings out the flavors in the marinade even more; the honey brings a nice sweetness, the lemon juice gives tartness and helps thin out the honey. Tabasco sauce helps kick things up a bit. For presentation this dish speaks for itself, but I like to garnish with whole fresh sage leaves and slices of lemons. I like to serve the chicken with baked potatoes and a simple side salad. This is a delicious dish and I hope you enjoy it as much as we have and it is also very affordable meal for entertaining, around $80.00 for a whole meal for 6-8 people. That's pretty good. Enjoy!
