===================

TWO EASY CHICKEN RECIPES

===================

Strictly speaking, these are not my mother’s recipes but instead they come from my wife who loves to eat but considers cooking to be a necessary evil. She prefers recipes where you put everything together, stick the meal in the oven and then come back an hour later when it is done. These two recipes fall into that category.

--------------------------------

The first one is for baked chicken legs and the second one is for baked chicken breasts with honey-mustard glaze. For either recipe, you can also serve oven-baked redskin potatoes, which you can cook in the oven at the same time.

===================

Cooking Instruction:

Roasted Baby Redskin Potatoes

Cooking Instruction:


  1. Bake 15 minutes at 400 F or 20 minutes at 325 F.


========================  

Serving Suggestions:

Either chicken recipe goes well with the roasted redskin potatoes. We generally ate them with asparagus, broccoli or even with frozen green beans or peas.

      Thanks. Your version sounds good too. Do you leave the skin on?

      With gravy you may not need the skin to keep the breasts moist.

      Sounds delicious! I like to bake my chicken breasts with potatoes placed around the chicken (in the same pan) cover with canned chicken gravy and bake. Either way, they are all great recipes. Thanks for the great recipes. Think I'll try the honey mustard glaze.
