Recipe by Sandra Hyde

Chicken like you have never tasted before. Found in a 16th Century "Cookbook". Different types of honey will produce variations in taste. Best if served with plain boiled rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dredge chicken pieces in flour mixture.
  2. Brown chicken pieces in the oil in a large saucepan (or electric frypan) until golden on both sides.
  3. Combine milk, honey, herbs, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  4. (Helps if the honey has been slightly warmed and is not too thick.) Pour the milk/honey mixture over the browned chicken in the saucepan, stirring well to combine the chicken drippings with the fluid.
  5. Cover and simmer (GENTLY) for about 20 minutes or until chicken is tender.
  6. (NB if the milk/honey mix boils or simmers too fast, the mixture will curdle. It is still edible, but looks terrible.) Check and adjust seasoning to taste.
  7. Stir in pinenuts just before serving.
