Sweet Baked Chicken

This is another sweet chicken recipe. This reminds me of the honey baked chicken that I used to make for Rosh Hashanah.

  • 2 - 3 lb. chickens, cut into eighths
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1 cup whole wheat matzo meal
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup light tasting olive oil
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple butter
  • 1 cup orange juice

Remove chicken skin. Trim pieces of all excess fat and pat dry. In a shallow bowl, combine eggs and water. Beat well. In another shallow bowl, combine matzo meal, salt, pepper and garlic. Dip chicken in egg mixture, then roll in matzo meal.

Fry chicken in oil over medium heat until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes per side. Remove chicken to an un-greased Dutch oven or covered roasting pan.

In a small bowl combine hot water, apple butter and orange juice. Pour over chicken and cover. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 45 minutes or until tender. Baste occasionally.

Chicken recipe The above is probably tasty, but extremely unhealthy, and cutting out the frying and apple butter would be far more nutritious.

Teach your children to eat healthy meals by example!! Reply
