Grilled Honey Chicken

Grilled Honey Chicken

The only meat I eat is fish and chicken; I take beef less than 5 times a year, just not a fan of beef.
And I seldom eat pork… cuz I dislike the smell.
Lamb is totally not my cup of tea.
Innards of any nature are untouchable…I will puke if any of it come close to my mouth.

In my freezer, U can only find fish & chicken.
When a recipe calls for meats of any kind, I will always substitute it with the dear old chicky.

Rarely, can U see any other meats making an appearance here.

Today’s meal features the chicky of cuz….
Usually, I roast or grill chicken with the skin intact. But hub (who does my grocery shopping) usually removes the skin before storing them, unless I instruct him otherwise.
So U see a skinless chicken today…..
If U have the skin on, U will get a crispy skin and the meat is more juicy cuz the skin will trap the juice & the skin also produce enough oil to enhance the taste of the meat.
