Sweet and Savory Chicken Recipe

sweet and savory chicken


Sorry about the serving size being small....I only made it for one person! :)

Sweet and Savory Chicken
Servings: 1
Cook Time: 45-50 minutes
Oven Temp: 400

4 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
2 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1-1/2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 TBSP parsley
2 TBSP honey
1 chicken leg quarter ( it is a thigh and a drumstick together) with the skin peeled/cut off.


1. Put the chicken in  a large plastic bag
2. Put all the other ingredients in the bag
3. Close the bag and shake gently to mix
4. Place in a pan in the fridge for several hours. The longer you leave it in the fridge, the more flavor will seep in.
5. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
6. Remove the chicken from the bag and put in a glass baking pan. Put in the oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the juices run clear.

Serving suggestions:
Rice, beans, veggies, and fruit salad

Enjoy!!! :)
Let me know if you have any questions.

Recent Adventures

Hi there!
School has been out for about three weeks now. I'm already exhausted from the busy summer, and we still have a month and a half to go! 😖

What I’ve been doing… 
We had our annual church father-kid camping trip on June 2-4. It was a time to hang out at the beach with friends. My favorite part is helping in the kitchen.

Next was Summer Camp!
  It was from June 7-11. We learned lots of things about God, enjoyed fellowship, and played fun games. We went on a hike (difficult but fun) and held our own electrical parade ( SO MUCH FUN!). My favorite God moment would have to be just sitting one morning and letting him quiet my soul. My favorite lesson was the last night. The speaker talked about what makes someone truly great. He quoted the scripture where Jesus said that the greatest are the ones who have a childlike faith. He also said that nothing we do makes us great, it is God's love and forgiveness that makes us great. He pointed out that we are all wandering sinners who need God's love; no one is better than anyone else. 

That's me and some friends enjoying summer camp! :)

Then, last Wednesday, I stayed up till 1:30 AM talking with friends.We talked about camp and other stuff and ate s'mores. 

Finally, I've been

filling out an application to take dual-credit classes at a local christian college. I got the initial stuff submitted, but I haven't heard anything yet. 

What I’ve been thinking… 

I have had several times lately that it has dawned on me that I'm going into my junior year of high school, which means that I only have two years of youth group left...and that I need to actually start thinking realistically about my future. 

So, the things I've been thinking about include...


a job
what I want to study

I also am thinking about more immediate things...
What kind of camera to buy
How to stay cool this summer
what to study in my junior year
what I want to talk about when I share with our youth group in July

Coming next….

1. VBS: Operation Arctic. I'm in the music station, which means that I will be on my feet dancing and leading hand motions all day for five days straight. 

2. Youth group service projects. Our youth group has planned three service projects for this summer. I'm super excited! 

3. Another camp...I'll be going to babysit kids for an entire week! :) 

4. Attempting to sleep. I've been going to bed around 10:30 or 11:00, but I need more sleep than that! 

That's all for now!!! 
Thanks for reading! :)
