so a while ago i pinned a recipe and then forgot about it ( i tend to do this quite frequently because something sounds like a great idea and then i get too busy to ever attempt anything new). a friend of mine, greta, saw the pin and made the recipe. she posted about how great it was and thanked me for the recipe (which i had never made and had forgotten about.) then christine saw the post from greta, made the chicken and also posted about it. so, i figured it was time i made the recipe i posted.
and man, what a good call.
got all my ingredients together, interested to see how they would all taste in concert
i had never fried chicken before, and i was fairly intimidated. the breading mix for this is so interesting with thyme, sage, ginger, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.
i also decided to make some roasted sweet potatoes to accompany the chicken (christine this idea came from you AND the fact that i can't get enough sweet potatoes)
i liked this simple and delectable preparation. i think maple syrup would have been a good substitute for the brown sugar as well.
it was a fair amount of work but the recipe left alot of left over flour mixture and honey garlic sauce so the second time i make it will go much more quickly. i also whipped up a quick salad for some added color and nutrition! karen, robert and i enjoyed it immensely.
