Gluten Free Dairy Free Cardamon Honey Chicken
With spring breezes arriving in my area, it is time to break out some recipes that can be cooked in the kitchen or grilled, depending on how the weather is acting that day. I love the combination of honey and cardamon in Gluten Free Dairy Free Cardamon Honey Chicken. The sweet and savory flavors mix so well together, making a great comforting meal no matter what the weather decides to do!
The directions below are for baking but if you choose to grill, simply remove the chicken from the marinade after thawing and grill as you normally would over a medium to medium-high grill temperature. However, keep an eye on it if it starts to darken more than you would like, moving those pieces over to a cooler area of the grill. Enjoy!
