Crispy chicken

It’s a been a while since I’ve posted recipe. It’s been a busy couple of months and even though I cooked a decent amount it was hard to get around to taking pictures and writing out the recipes. But here’s a new one!

I can’t take full credit for this one though. I spent a couple of weeks in Montana working at a sports clinic in the winter and I was super lucky to have an awesome group of people living in the shared house with me, one of who happened to be a professional chef who volunteered to cook for our big and hungry group! I picked up some awesome tips from chef Ben including this super easy recipe which I now slightly altered (there’s no honey in the original recipe and it’s still amazing so make it however you want to!)


6 chicken thighs WITH bone and skin

4 tbsp melted butter

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp salt

1.5 tsp honey (I used Henry’s Humdingers cinnamon and chilli infused honey -more on this later)


1. Place chicken in baking dish

2. Poke little holes on both sides of each check thighs with a sharp fork

3. Preheat over to 400 degrees

4. Combine melted butter, cinnamon, salt, pepper, cumin and honey and mix together

5. Using a spoon or a brush apply the mixture to one side of each piece of chicken and let it rest for 5 minutes

6. Flip the chicken pieces over and coat the other side. Let it rest for 15 minutes

7. Place in over for 45-60 minutes or until skin is crisp. You can flip it over half way through.

8. Remove from over and place chicken in large bowl and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Then using 2 fork shred the chicken from the bone.

9. Serve with your choice of side dish and enjoy!

***now more on that honey…

So I was recently watching shark tank when I couldn’t sleep and I saw an old episode about a type of honey a teenage boy is making. The proceeds go towards saving the bees. He makes honey infused with different flavors. I ordered one jar to give it a try in a different recipe and it came up delicious. So I ended up buying another 3 jars! I’ve now used it with lamb, chicken, fish and even pancakes. It’s really delicious honey and support a good cause! (I don’t know the guy who makes it, nor am I being paid to say this btw). I just genuinely like it. It’s called Henry’s Humdingers Honey and comes in a bunch of flavors. You can google it yourself if interested. I bought these 4 and really liked all of them:
