Honey Glazed Chicken

This recipe is from my back-fence neighbor, Cherie, who is a wonderful cook.   I was lucky enough to borrow and copy her entire family cookbook of wonderful recipes.  This recipe tasted kind of like one of my favorite dishes at PF Chang - Crispy Honey Chicken.  It was very easy to make and used ingredients that you usually have on hand (I always like to have a couple of fresh lemons on hand - just in case!).  It is something that I think kids would love because it is sweet and doesn't have any of those "green things" that kids sometimes won't eat. :)

Honey Glazed Chicken
from my friend Cherie

1 c flour
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
4 chicken breasts, cut into 1-2" pieces
1/2 c butter or margarine, melted (divided)
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c honey
1/4 c fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 TBSP soy sauce
sesame seeds as a garnish (optional)
hot cooked rice

In a plastic gallon bag, combine flour and cayenne pepper.  Add chicken pieces and shake to coat.  Pour 4 TBSP melted butter into a 9x13 baking dish.  Add coated chicken, turning pieces to coat with butter.  Bake, uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes.  Combine brown sugar, honey, lemon juice, soy sauce and remaining butter.  Pour over chicken.  Bake for 15 more minutes, until bubbly.  Serve over hot rice, with sesame seeds sprinkled on as a garnish.
