    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    A beginners recipe for roast chicken. The glaze gives it a subtle honey & lime flavour. I also do my turkey at Christmas like this.

      I love this recipe. The lime blends very well with the honey and the paprika. If paprika is not to your tasting, try lemon thyme. Either way, it has a great taste.

      Delicious, Sylvie ! I prefer dark meat chicken so I baked the pieces. I seasoned with Goya Adobo Lemon and Pepper, garlic and onion powder, (watching my salt), juice of half a lime and olive oil. Since I did not have another lime for the glaze, I substituted half a lemon. Baked at 350* for 15 minutes in glass pan skin side down and basted with pan juices first, then again with honey glaze. Turn skin side up after 25 min and baste again Raise oven temp to 375* for last 15 min. Total cooking time was about 65 min since I had small chicken drums and thighs (8 pcs). Thanks so much for sharing such a great recipe which I will enjoy often!
