Honey-Mint Roast Chicken
Health Highlights


1 dash Black pepper
1 pinch Salt
4 tbsp Honey
1 1/2 tbsp Water
2 tbsp Mint, fresh (finely chopped)
1 tbsp Lemon peel (zest)
1 1/3 kg Chicken leg


Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a large baking dish with aluminum foil.

Sprinkle the chicken pieces liberally with salt and pepper; lay on the foil-lined pan and set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, water, mint and zest. Brush the mixture on the chicken, coating the pieces completely.

Roast for 45 minutes, basting the chicken with the drippings in the pan every 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear when pricked with the tines of a fork.
