Simple Honey Baked Chicken Recipe by Leah

Simple Honey Baked Chicken

This chicken dish is the very first thing I cooked for my husband as a young bride.  We’d come home from our honeymoon in the beautiful coastal town of Pacific Grove, California.  My husband had to go to work and I remember kissing him goodbye and standing there in our very 1st apartment, not yet fully moved in, and wondering where to start.  “What would a wife do next?”, I thought to myself.  Very happy but a little uncertain I decided to unpack. I opened the first box and there on top was a cookbook, gifted from a family friend in Canada.  She was a member of the Eastern Star organization and her local group of women had collected their favorite recipes and turned it into a cookbook.  What a treasure!  Favorite recipes from experienced women and wives!  This is what a wife does!  I found this recipe, went to the grocery store and made my husband his first home cooked meal as a husband.  It all sounds so sweetly naive now and yet, the day was a precious one, filled with love for my husband and the life we wanted to create together.  There have been many meals since then: some fancy, some simple, some delivered or picked up, some eaten out.  Meals have been shared with friends and family, prepared together, prepared separately and all of these – every single one – have been a demonstration of love and an opportunity to connect as we sit and eat together.  Love is shared in the simple act of preparing a meal to nourish those you love.

This simple chicken dish will always hold a special place in my heart for the memories it brings.  By the way, it tastes good too. ☺
