- For the Chicken
- 6-8 pieces chicken legs , drums or thighs
- 1/2 cup honey (or 1/3 for less)
- 1/2 cup Mustard , any kind will do (or 1/3 for less)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons fresh basil , chopped
- 1/2 tablespoon thyme
- Salt + pepper , optional to taste
- For the Rice
- 1 1/2 cups rice + package directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine honey and mustard then whisk together. Add olive oil, 2 tablespoons fresh bail and thyme then mix. Place chicken in an oven safe casserole dish and slightly salt, if desired. Pour honey mustard mixture of the top. Check oven a few times and using a spoon or turkey baster, pour juices over the top of the chicken. This will bake more flavor into the meat and will give it that nice brown color. Keep spooning juices over the top and bake until color desired. Bake for 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 175 degrees F. Sprinkle the remaining chopped basil over the top of the chicken before serving. Serve chicken over the rice and spoon juices on top if desired.
For the Rice - Follow package directions to make rice using about 1 1/2 cups of rice to feed 4 people.
