tTt’s Tennessee Honey Chicken

Chicken Marinade
(4-8 hours):

1 Shot Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Whiskey
2T Honey
1T Brown Sugar
1T McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning
Optional: 1/4tsp Sea Salt (We skip!!!)

Add thawed Chicken and Marinade to Ziploc Bag. Marinade. BEST ON CHARCOAL GRILL (Grilling Tip Below)! Eat this AMAZING Chicken alone. Over Rice cooked in Broth with Vegis. On a Manwich with Baked Bacon, Cheese, Tomato, Lettuce, and Mayo/Miracle Whip… Endless Ideas!Or Serve over Rice and Vegis (Rice cooked in Microwave with Chicken Broth instead of Water. I use Water + Crushed Broth Cubes).

Charcoal Grilling Tip: If it tastes like straight up smoke… You’re doing it wrong! We build a hill in center of grill. Light charcoal (We used Regular Charcoal). Once coals are ashy grey, they are ready. Place on food, on outside of hill of charcoal. Prop Grill Open, using a Slightly crushed pop can. Chicken: Lay Chicken on outer part of grill (Outside hill). Once Chicken isn’t sticking to grate, so much, it’s ready to flip. Flip once, that’s it. Cook til Thermometer reads correct temp.


Tay’s Chick Rub – Tay’s Sweet Honey BBQ Recipe, as well. KILLER COMBO!


Season over makes, for few uses! Try over Fries. Potato Skins. Chicken. Etc. Great for indoor cooking or Grilling!

1T Chili Powder
1tsp Brown Sugar (Optional. Depending on use.)
1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/2tsp Black Pepper
1/2tsp Mustard Powder
1/2tsp Cumin
1tsp Garlic Powder
1tsp Onion Powder
1tsp Paprika
1/8tsp Cayenne
1/2tsp Fresh Lemon Peel
1 Chicken Broth Cube, crushed to powder*
1/8tsp Celery Seed

White Vinegar (Depending on how cooking)

Flour (Depending on how cooking)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Depending on how cooking)

Use Rub any way you’d like. For this particular recipe, I BAKED Chicken Legs. So, I:
REMOVED SKIN FROM LEGS (Easier to do when Partial Frozen!).
I Marinaded in Ziploc Bag: 6 Legs + 1/2T White Vinegar + 1-2T Chicken Rub (I skipped Brown Sugar for this particular recipe). Marinade 20min.
Add 1/2T Olive Oil to bag, toss around. Sprinkle in half of 1/2T Flour in the bag, toss. Add other half, toss. Set in fridge for about 20 minutes.
Butter Flavor Cooking Spray baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at about 425-450 for 18minutes, flip, bake another 12-18minutes, or til juices run clear.
I tossed cooked Chicken with Tay’s Sweet Honey BBQ Sauce (Recipe below)!

If Grilling: Marinade 1hr. in Ziploc Bag: 6 Legs + 1/2T White Vinegar + 1-2T Chicken Rub. Grill. Eat alone, or, Optional, to toss with Sauce (BBQ, Buffalo, etc.)
Also, try the Rub Recipe for Tay’s Loaded Taters!

NOTES: Brown Sugar: If I’m doing a BBQ Chicken, or Sauce Toss, I skip Brown Sugar. Usually only use if just doing Season with Oil/Butter. Also, USE the crushed Chicken Broth Cube. Lots of famous seasons contain Meat Flavoring/etc. It’s GREAT!

Lemony Snickets Chicks (Lemon Chicken Bites)


Lemon Sauce:
1/2c Powdered Sugar (Confectioners Sugar)
1/4tsp Garlic Powder
1/8c+1T Fresh Lemon Juice (More to taste)
1/4tsp Fresh Lemon Zest
2T Honey
1/2c Hot Water
1 Chicken Broth Cube (Crushed added to hot water)
1tsp Rice Vinegar
1/16tsp Ginger
Premake sauce earlier, set in fridge. Place 3-4 frozen chicken breasts in a bag with few squirts of Fresh Lemon Juice and splash of Soy Sauce. Marinade til thaw.

1/3c Vegetable Oil, for frying (Try Coconut Oil- I have yet to try it, tho)
2 Eggs, Beaten

Batter Mixture:
1c Cornstarch (You could probably get away with less)
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
Up to 1/4tsp Course Black Pepper
Good pinch of Sea Salt
1/2tsp Onion Powder
1/4tsp Paprika

Preheat oven 350. Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes. Pour the starch over the chicken and toss til coated, I’m not pretty about it. Then I Distribute eggs over battered chicken. Lightly toss. (I find this easier than dipping them into the egg and losing most batter on my fingers.)
Heat oil in large skillet. Cook chicken until browned. Place in baking dish. SQUIRT with Fresh Lemon Juice. Pour lemon sauce evenly over chicken. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Turn chicken, bake for 15 more minutes. Squirt with a little more Fresh Lemon Juice. Allow to set and thicken some. Serve with 2.5c rice, cooked in Chicken Broth, pinch of sea salt, and mixed with 1c frozen Peas.

Healthier Version (Skipping deep fry coating): Make sauce, skipping powder sugar and adding a little more honey and a LITTLE sugar (To taste)- To sweeten. Cook chicken in A LITTLE EVOO (Or butter flavored cooking spray). Add in sauce, stirring, til thickened… OR: Fry in LITTLE EVOO, add to baking pan with sauce, then bake 350 15minutes. Toss, bake 15more minutes.

White Bear Hot Honey Flaps (Chicken Wings)


2lbs Wings
Constarch (Enough to toss, about a cup)
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Course Pepper
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Paprika
Sprinkle of Sea Salt
Vegetable Oil
1 cup Honey
1/2 cup Butter, melted
1/2 OR 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper (We use 1tsp)
1 tsp Sriracha Hot Sauce

PREHEAT OVEN 350. I like to take my frozen wings and let them thaw tossing with squirts of lemon juice, sprinkle of cayenne powder. With this recipe, HALF the honey (1/2cup), as well. Or let them marinade for AT LEAST 30minutes.
Heat oil. Mix together Batter recipe: Garlic Pwdr, Pepper, Onion Pwdr, Paprika, Sea Salt, and cornstarch.
IN A SEPERATE BOWL mix together Hot Sauce recipe: 1/2 cup Honey, 1/2 cup Butter, 1/2 cup Franks Hot Sauce, 1/2-1 tsp Cayenne, 1 tsp Sriracha.
Beat eggs in SEPERATE BOWL.
Toss Wings with Cornstarch Mixture to coat. What I do is pour the starch over the wings and toss til coated, I’m not pretty about it. Then I Distribute eggs over battered wings. Then place in oil 1 by 1. (I find this easier than Dipping them into the egg and losing most batter on my fingers.) Fry in oil til browned on each side. Place in baking pan, distribute Hot Sauce Mixture over chicken evenly. Bake 350 for about 15-20 minutes, until cooked. Get that extra sauce in pan all over those wings, carefully. Allow to rest a few minutes. Get wet napkins ready. Eat.
