Tastes like chicken**

I am hosting November's Kosher Cooking Carnival (submit, people! By November 23!), so I figured I better include my own food post to submit.

Before Rosh Hashannah, I found a recipe for chicken in the Yediot Achronot. It looked good, so I made sure to have or buy all the ingredients. When it came to actually cooking the bird, the given recipe looked way to complicated, so I whittled it down to this:


olive oil
black pepper
crushed garlic cloves

Make a mixture out of the olive oil and spices, and smear the mixture all over the chicken (inside and out). Bake at about 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. Remove chicken from oven and smear honey inside and out the chicken. Put the chicken back in the oven at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes. Chicken should be golden brown.

I saw this recipe over at Ilana Davita's place and immediately thought of it when I went to make my chicken. The lemon stuffing is the perfect foil for the honey on the chicken.

I've served this several times to different guests and it's been a big hit. It passes my criteria for recipes, because it's REALLY EASY and barely uses any dishes. Go ahead and try it. B'teavon (hearty appetite)!

**Since my trivia contests (see the end of this post) are so popular, I decided to use the title of this post for another triva question: In what movie was the line "tastes like chicken", uttered? Bonus points if you can name the character who said it.

I'm bad at movie trivia. But my mouth is watering from your recipe.

What a delicious-looking combination! I have lots of leftover challah in my freezer; I now know what I want to use it for...

Shabbat Shalom.

Thanks for the link.

I'll look the quote up later, I'm sure it wasn't from "Prince of Tides" though, if you remember the scene I mean.

Actually, wasn't it from the Rocky Horror PictureShow, where it turned out that they were eating Meatloaf (capital M intentional)?

the correct answer is "Crocodile Dundeee", pity as I preferred my answers

The answer I was thinking of was in the Disney movie "The Lion King", where Timon, after eating some worms, licks his fingers, smacks his lips and exclaims, "Tastes like chicken".

Shabbat Shalom!
