Lately I haven’t been that great about meal planning. I’m a bit uninspired and just have so much going on that I often don’t feel much like cooking. Usually meal planning would help me eliminate this problem because it would just tell me what to cook without hassle. But I keep wanting to try new recipes which keeps leading to more work and time required as I figure out the steps. Unfortunately, I’ve now pretty much run out of pre-prepared meals in the freezer so I’m just going to have to deal with it and get cooking.

Last night I decided to use a package of chicken pieces and the sweet potatoes in our fridge to create a masterpiece. I don’t know if it was so out of this world but it was tasty and we gobbled down everything those chicken pieces have to offer. The chicken has a great, light flavor and can be combined with almost any side dishes: homemade mac & cheese, beer rice, fresh veggies from the garden…whatever strikes your fancy. We also usually eat the chicken with a bit of homemade BBQ sauce. You can never go wrong with a sauce made with liquid smoke and Jack Daniels. This portion (plus  a side) is just about the right size for two people and a small child.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Salt the chicken pieces and rub them all over with garlic. Let sit for about 15 minutes.
  3. Put pieces in a roasting pan, making sure that the garlic is still on them. Use a pan that will allow you to spread out the chicken and avoid stacking the pieces. Pour beer into bottom of pan. Roast in oven for about 15 minutes. Be careful not to burn the garlic. Make a foil tent for the chicken if the garlic begins to brown or crisp.
  4. Take the pan out and pour honey over the chicken, making sure that each piece is well covered. If you need more honey, use it.
  5. Roast for another 20 minutes or until the chicken pieces are crisp and shiny brown.
  6. Put on a warm platter and serve.
