Betsy’s Best recipe for Cardamom Honey Glazed Chicken is super tasty and naturally healthy.  Made with Gourmet Cashew Butter with Cardamom it is also satisfying.  If you are looking to add real flavor to your diet while staying healthy give this recipe a try.

Recipe Ingredients:

 4 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp Betsy’s Best Gourmet Cashew Butter
2 Tbsp. sherry or orange juice
1/8 tsp. freshly ground cardamom seeds
1/8 tsp. ground peppercorns
6 chicken breasts
3 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper

    Recipe Directions:

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Warm the honey to make it easier to combine with the sherry, Betsy’s Best Cashew Butter, ground cardamom, and peppercorns. Use this to marinade the chicken in a large bowl. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan at medium high heat.

    Sear the chicken, skin side down, until golden.

    Place the lemon slices in a roasting pan and lay the chicken pieces on top. Brush with the marinade and season generously with salt and pepper.

    Bake until done – about 20 minutes for breasts or longer for thighs, wings, and drumsticks. Remove from oven and allow to rest for about 10 minutes before serving.

    Pour drippings from the pan to make gravy. Serve over rice, mashed potatoes, or couscous.
