For this meal I had the pleasure of having company over for dinner. Everyone was very pleased with the flavor as well as the presentation of this meal. Due to our customer’s diet restrictions this meal only comes marinated in wild tree’s European Mediterranean balsamic dipping oil. Subsequently makes this one of the cheaper meals.
To complete this meal you will need: ½- 1 whole onion, 1/2cup honey, ½ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup of soy sauce.
To skin or not to skin, that is the question. There are many factors to which why meat tastes and looks the way that it does. Many and most chicken farmers feed their livestock food that produces desired results to the community (i.e. yellow skin, thinner skin, larger breasts). Our farm does not produce such results. Our meat in leaner and our skin is thicker. Drumsticks, thighs, and wings are all considered dark meat on bird, meaning these meats will be tenderer. If you chose to leave the skin on (this is what I prefer) your meat will me very moist. Most people do not like this method due to having to remove the skin at the dinner table. If you take the skin off it leaves your meat susceptible for drying out. If you chose this method, I suggest covering your baking dish with foil or a lid.
Suggestion: reserve ½ of the sauce or make more sauce then required for dipping, serve hot.
