Poultry Essentials: Honey Baked Chicken Breasts

Andy Anderson !


This is a simple recipe to assemble, and since we are using boneless, skinless chicken breasts, you want to be sure to brine them; otherwise, they’ll be too dry.

Serve it with rice or mash taters, or whatever you feel you want.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
