Given to me by a friend who loves to experiment with recipes. A little kick of Southwestern cooking. Not too spicy, but can be made so with a little bit more jalapeno or other spices for an extra bit of 'kick.'

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, mix cinnamon, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Rub chicken pieces with the mixture, and arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, blend chicken broth, honey, lime juice, and jalapeno. Cook and stir until thickened.
  4. Place chicken in the preheated oven and cook about 15 minutes. Begin basting periodically with the chicken broth mixture. Continue cooking 30 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

This recipe is great! I didn't use a whole chicken but chose 4 pieces of skinless, boneless chicken instead. I cooked them in a pan on top of the stove w/a little butter (about 7 minutes). Once one side was done, I flipped the pieces over and added the broth/honey/jalapeno/lime juice sauce and cooked it w/the lid on for for about 6 minutes. It came out so flavorful, so moist and smelled heavenly! Next time I would double the sauce as everyone wanted more to pour over their jasmine rice. Don't be nervous about all the cinnamon- it's fabulous :-)

Good. Skinned chicken, used 1 1/2 tsp Cyan pepper inplace of chili powder (hot) and a whole Jalapeno pepper. Placed in baking dish, cooked in sauce, basting every 5 min.

Excellent. Used extra sauce with water to cook rice and was delicious.
