I made this dinner for me and my husband because I promise to make him a healthy meal. So I came out with this Honey Mustard Baked Chicken. For the honey mustard dressing I use; 4 tablespoons stone ground mustard and 2 tablespoons honey and mixed them together. For the chicken breast I seasoned with garlic salt, onion powder, paprika and ground black pepper. Preheat over to 400 degrees. In a baking pan place the chicken and pour the mustard dressing onto the chicken cover with foil and bake it to 25 - 35 minutes depends on the size of the chicken. Use a thermometer to check if the chicken is fully cook should be 165 degrees. And toasted with sliced almond and sprinkle ontop of the chicken. This is the first time I made this and it came out good.
Before I usually used my homemade dry rub to season the chicken and let it seat overnight to make sure all the ingredients will get into the meat. But this time I decided and follow my instinct to marinate overnight instead, with my homemade sweet & savory sauce . I should say this is definitely a winner. So tasty, moist and delicious. Smoked the chicken for 4 hours. The long is worthed and satisfying.
As all you know cooking is my number passion and my stress reliever. When I'm cooking I feel relief, happy and thankful. Never I stop making good food for my family and friends. When I made this "Chicken Inasal" for the very first time. (Challenge myself in things that I'm not familiar with, is what make me more stronger and believing I was born to be a good cook). This is very famous in the Philippines and here abroad. The key to having a good "Chiken Inasal" you need to have a good marinate sauce in order for the chicken to taste good, a patience in grilling and cook it to perfection. This is out of my comfort zone but I'm happy and contented with the outcome and I'm glad I made it. So good and delicious definitely broke the mouth.
Chicken Adobo - is braised in vinegar, soy sauce, fresh garlic, fresh ginger, bay leave and whole peppercorns or ground black pepper. This dish is very popular in the Philippines especially in Ilocos region. Adobo means the marinate or sauce. I marinate the chicken with soy sauce, vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder and ground black pepper. You can marinate for 2 hours before cooking or overnight. For myself I prefer to marinate overnight to make sure all that goodness marinate sauce get into the meat and make it taste so delicious.
