How many people take chicken out of the freezer and toss it in the fridge to thaw with absolutely no idea what they are going to do with it? I know that it can’t possibly be me. I do it all the time. I love chicken in certain recipes, but sometimes I don’t want to make a salad or a casserole with it, and I don’t really want to just chomp into a chicken breast either. Over the years I have learned how to season them so that they are good, but that gets boring after a few times in a month. One day when I was flipping through an old recipe book that my mom had given me, I came up on this baked chicken that had my Aunt Janet’s handwriting all over it. She was always a good cook, so I knew it was going to be spectacular.
I grabbed up all the ingredients that I didn’t have in the house already on my next trip to the supermarket. I made this for dinner when I looked in the fridge and saw the dreaded chicken sitting there. When my husband asked what we were eating, I could see the disappointment in his face when I replied chicken.
That all changed the second this came out of the oven. He was hovering around the kitchen already, that’s how I can tell he’s getting hungry, and when this was done, he went and sat at the table right away. It was by far better than my chicken!
