Honey Mustard Chicken

Nothing says Sunday dinner like a roasted chicken…….Honey Mustard Roast Chicken.

When I was growing up, having a roasted chicken was like a mini Thanksgiving. We usually had mashed potatoes with gravy, and corn. We had corn because that was about the only vegetable my picky brother and I would eat. But, the best part was, my Grandma’s  stuffing…….every family has a special dressing for holidays and my Grandma’s was the dressing that we all fought over when it was time to go home and she was packing the goodie bags. Lucky for me I lived right next door, so I had special access. The dressing has special memories of holidays and Sunday dinners.

Back in the day when everything, and I do mean everything was cooked until it was falling off the bone. The only complaint I had was that sometimes the chicken was dry…….well until you covered it with gravy. So, what to do to make that Sunday chicken moist……….

One of my favorite recipes is Simple Roasted Chicken ……….only salt and pepper on a very well dried bird and into a high heat oven…….I know, I was skeptical at first too, but it is truly the best chicken.

 A nice sauce can produce a moist bird, as is the case with this “yard bird” recipe. On top of super yummy, it’s super duper easy. Mix, pour, bake, gobble up………more on the gobbler meal later in the week.

A simple sauce of yellow mustard, soy sauce, honey, and curry powder poured over the chicken and roasted……..hmmm,hmmm,hmmm………..it was delicious.

You can serve this with potatoes, rice, pasta, or as Tim and I did……… the Roasted Pear Salad.

Leftovers…….if you have any……..which I suspect you will not……….can be used in chicken sandwiches, or added to a pasta or soup dish.

Chicken Kenny

Chicken Kenny

Kenny Chicken
Com’n listen to a story ’bout a man named……Kenny…….oh wait, wrong show!

Chicken Kenny is a story linked to the Cosby Show……so, lets start the story…..

Tim, as I have mentioned before is an identical twin, and when he and Tom were small ,they had an Uncle who could not tell them apart so, he called them both “Bud”……… a nickname that has stuck for both of them to this day.

Tim worked at Moonlight Bay Marina when Cosby Show was very popular. Now, if you have seen the Cosby Show, you know that the character of Rudy had a little friend who she called “Bud”.

When you first meet “Bud”, Rudy brings him home to meet the family. Bud, has a heart to heart with Mr. Huxtable, who discovers that Bud’s name is really Kenny. Rudy continued to call him Bud to which he would reply……my names not Bud its Kenny!

In a way, this is one of those you had to be there stories, but one of our friends Carol started calling Tim Kenny instead of Bud. The phrase……my names not Bud its Kenny was heard frequently.

During this time Tim made a mustard dipping sauce at the Marina, and it became………wait for it…………Kenny Mustard.

I have hear this story many times, but until the other day Tim had never made me Kenny Mustard. My recipe, for what is now going to know as Chicken Kenny starts with the Kenny Mustard. I used it as the binder for the crust for my Chicken Kenny.

I wanted to try and cut the calories in a chicken strip recipe by baking and not frying. I wanted it to have a crunchy crust……..pretzels…….they go with mustard………Kenny Mustard………Chicken Kenny!!!

Chicken Kenny Dip

 It was super easy too……..just coat the chicken strips with the mustard and roll in crushed pretzels and bake. Easy peasy and they turned out AWESOME…………

Add them to your next Sunday football snack list, or make them for dinner. Kids will love them too!

Just be sure to save half the sauce for dipping!!
