Grilled Chicken with Honey/Spicy Beer Mustard Glaze

Grilled Chicken with Honey/Spicy Beer Mustard Glaze

 

 

What is summer to you? Sunny days, vacations, golfing with friends, boating at the lake? For us at Buzz Savories, summer brings a lot of flavor and the taste of great food with friends somewhere outdoors, and we grill! 

Our June 2024 recipe for grilling chicken is among my tried-and-true favorite recipes for barbecue. I like it especially because the flavor of the sauce enhances the flavor of the chicken so a win/win for all fortunate diners at your table.

I prefer starting with a whole chicken for 2 reasons:

  1. Grilling a whole chicken with skin-on enhances flavor and helps keep moisture in the meat

  2. To satisfy the guests, all parts of the chicken are available for their choosing

  3. Once I learned how to spatch-cock a chicken, I find it faster, easier and less messy than cutting the parts separately.

I am a fan of the spatchcock process because in under 10 minutes I can cut the backbone out of 5-5 ½ lb. chicken. I flatten the breast bones with a solid whack, and season with salt and pepper and then a gentle rub with olive oil.

To spatch-cock a chicken, I advise acquiring sturdy scissors, especially for use in cutting meat, and a sharp knife.

Place the chicken back-side down on the grill, cover the grill and roast in indirect heat until the instant thermometer reaches 145 Degrees F. No need to flip the chicken, roast the entire process with the back of the chicken on the grill. Then brush with the sauce every 5 minutes until the instant thermometer reads 160 Degrees F.

This lightly flavored and fresh glaze locks the juices into the chicken.

The sweet, spicy, smoky aroma of chicken on the grill brings us together, and we feast.

Buzz Savories Honey Scones with a Rhubarb Compote

Buzz Savories Honey Scones with a Rhubarb Compote

 


When the lilacs bloom and the robins nest, I prepare to celebrate Mother’s Day with a favorite recipe for Honey Scones with a Rhubarb Compote.

Like a nature-made spring tonic, my body welcomes the Vitamin C, Calcium, and Magnesium that rhubarb brings to the table.  

Where do I pull rhubarb (rhubarb is pulled vs. picked), you may ask? I live in a village of 5,000 population. Homes are built in a block design. Houses face the street on every block and an alley is plotted behind the houses and between the avenues. Garbage pick-up, telephone poles and fences line the alleyways, as well as, bushy plants – rhubarb, milkweed, hollyhocks – plants most often listed as undesirable in the impeccable green landscapes surrounding the homes.

I pull my rhubarb fresh from an old/mature rhubarb plant that grows in the alley behind my neighbor’s house. I pull the rhubarb stalks with her permission. The more stalks I pull, the more rhubarb grows from this majestic plant.

The scone recipe is derived from a book published in Great Britain and, a reader will note, the mixing method differs from the usual American technique, adding a bit of fun to the mixing/making of the scones.  

A pleasant honey flavor lingers in every bite of scone. The honey flavor is a consideration here; therefore, buy a local honey.

Honey Scones with Rhubarb Compote

Buzz Savories local honey scores in the recipe for Honey Scones. The delicate flavors of clover and wild flowers are show cased in the scone. The bright pink rhubarb compote accents the presentation and the flavor.
Course Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Cuisine American
Keyword Buzz Savories Honey,
Prep Time 25 minutes
Servings 8 scones

Equipment

  • 1 2 1/3 inch round pastry cutter (approximately)_ Use a jar or drinking glass to cut the scones
  • 1 baking sheet lined with parchment paper

What You'll Need:

  • 2 ½ cup rhubarb trimmed and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 Tb water

Honey Scones

  • 1 ⅓ cup self-rising flour
  • 5 ½ Tb cold butter, cubed
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 Tb sugar
  • 2 Tb honey
  • ½ cup milk
  • whipped cream, to serve

How To Prepare:

  • Step 1: preheat oven to 400 Degrees Fahrenhart
  • Step 2: Place rhubarb in pan or in glass bowl with suger and water. Cook for 6-7 minutes in micro-wave or simmer on the stove for about 10 minutres until rhubarb pieces have completely broken down and the mixture is thick and sticky. Spoon into a small jar or ramekin and leave to cool.
  • Step 3: To make the scones, place the flour in a large bowl and add the cubes of butter. Quickly rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips (or a pastry cutter) until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. Stir in salt and sugar and make a well in the center.
  • Step 4: Pour the honey into the center of the well, then gradually add the milk, stirring it into the mixture using a round-ended knife.. A soft, rough dough will form. Tip the dough out on to a lightly floured worktop and knead very gently to smooth out the dough. Over-handling the dough will make your scones tough and flat so knead as little as possible. (i tried using a butter knife instead of a spoon to mix the dough, and to my surprise, it works).
  • Step 5: Gently roll the dough out to a thickbess of around 1 inch. Cut into rounds using a 2 1/3 or 2 1/2 inch pastry cutter (or jar/drinking glass top). Cut straight down, no twisting as twisting prevents scones fron rising properly. Very gently re-roll the remaining dough, taking care not to handle it too much, and punch out more scones - should have 8 or 9 in total.
  • Arrange the scones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper .
    Brush the tops with extra honey.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until risen and golden-brown. Serve warm from the oven split in half, with big dollops of whipped cream and rhubarb compote.

One Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

One-Skillet Chicken Pot Pie with Spicy Beer Mustard and Thyme

Best in Flavor and Best in Pleasure 

One-Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

When I review a recipe I score for 5 attributes:  

#1 Phenomenal flavor   
#2Eye appeal  
#3Easy cooking and clean-up  
#4Six or fewer ingredients   
#5 – Nutritional aspects; good-for-health  

  1. I give the Chicken Pot Pie in Puff Pastry a star for flavor. This recipe tastes amazing because every one of the 16 ingredients blend to produce a creamy, savory flavor, and the puff pastry crust adds a crunch to every bite. 

  2. I give the recipe a star for eye appeal – toasty brown crust and creamy sauce with bright orange carrots and green peas peeking through the topping.

  3. I award the recipe a star for easy cooking and clean-up (one skillet).

  4. NO star for 6 or fewer ingredients -  In fact over 12 ingredients are needed to make the pot pie. I will say that each ingredient is common, and probably all but the chicken and puff pastry are on-hold in your refrigerator or on a pantry shelf now.

  5. I posted a star for  benefits towards health and nutrition because the One-Skillet Chicken Pot Pie with Thyme includes vegetables, chicken, and a toasty carbohydrate in the puff pastry crust, and  is low in fat and salt.  

I think One-Skillet Chicken Pot Pie with 4 out of 5 stars deserves  a place of honor on your table.      

Spicy Beer Mustard lifts the flavor from “good” to  “May I have a second helping?” delicious and adds to the nutritional value of the dish.  

Now Chef’s, …Set oven to 400 Degrees, and take out your 10-inch black-iron or heavy bottom steel skillet and begin cooking!

Blushing Bee Cocktail

Blushing Bee

Blushing Bee Cocktail

I celebrate all things green and growing in April, and toast  to Spring. I’m lifting a glass sparkling with a fresh squeeze of citrus juice and blended with  Buzz Savories local honey. I also lift myself out of my ordinary eating routine through 5 months of winter doldrums with a Spring Tonic.   

Celebrate with the Blushing Bee Cocktail or renew and refresh with the Blushing Bee tonic. Make a honey simple syrup then squeeze a fresh lemon and a lime, add a tablespoon of cranberry juice for the blush then shake with ice.  The cocktail calls for vodka. Call it a tonic or call it a cocktail, sip the Blushing Bee for the light citrus flavor and the aroma of flowering apple trees and lilacs. 

Honey syrup is the key to the refreshing flavor of this sipping aperitif. Honey takes a bow in this drink as it blends with the acid of the citrus juices to make a smooth sipping beverage, thereby acquire a local honey, like Buzz Savories Artisanal Honey, for the flavor and the quality of 100% honey.   

I advise incorporating cranberry juice for color.  I did not want to buy a quart of cranberry juice to add the “blush” to the tonic/cocktail instead I poured 2 tablespoons of cherry syrup from a bottle I saved for months in the refrigerator. The cherry syrup turned the Blushing Bee Cocktail brown!  Cranberry juice adds a rose pink to the mix. 

To double or triple the recipe, make the honey syrup a day or a week before your friends arrive.  Squeeze the citrus several hours prior to the party and refrigerate.   

The shake process takes this drink to a higher level of flavor so fill a quart jar 2/3 full of ice then pour the citrus/honey mixture over and shake, shake, shake, then strain into glasses and serve.

Buzz Savories Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs

Savory, Tangy, and a Mouthful of Flavor

Buzz Savories Deviled Eggs

Easter brings new beginnings  – forsythia, flowering almond, and wild plum blossoms blooming on bare branches and sunny daffodils, red tulips and deep blue hyacinths lifting their blooms over the shreds of autumn leaves.

Over time, the lowly egg has earned the honor of symbolizing Spring and new life.

At Buzz Savories we honor Spring, new beginnings, and eggs with a recipe for Deviled Eggs that lifts the common egg into the “May I have another, please?” category.

Our Deviled Egg recipe features Spicy Beer Mustard as a prime ingredient for the savory sauce. Buzz Savories mustards evolved from a mixture of 9 natural ingredients creating a rich and interesting old world flavor that adds spice and richness. Serve Buzz Savories Deviled Eggs as appetizers or even better, a colorful, edible centerpiece for your Easter table.

I will repeat as I most often do when speaking about Buzz Savories’ recipes, “Make plenty because guests rave about this tasty protein- packed egg.”

Lucky St. Patrick's Day Recipes

Corned Beef Roast & Corned Beef Sliders

Corned Beef and cabbage are considered a traditional St. Patrick’s Day feast around the world yet this combination of beef brisket cured in rock salt and spices and cooked with cabbage did not originate in Ireland. Instead historians think corned beef and cabbage stew was popularized by Irish immigrants to the U.S. because it was less expensive than the real Irish tradition of beef and potatoes often found in Irish stew.

On St. Patrick’s Day, I like to honor the Irish with us today and yesteryear by serving Corned Beef in the shape and flavor of a Corned Beef and Sauerkraut Slider. The recipe recalls a famous sandwich invented in Nebraska – the Reuben Sandwich. The Rueben, also a combination of sauerkraut and corned beef and Swiss cheese was on the menu at the Blackstone Hotel in Omaha, Nebraska, a city known in its early years for its beef packing industry.

Corned Beef Sliders

On St, Patrick’s Day I make and serve the Corned Beef Sliders because my guests and family relish these small sandwiches filled with flavor, and we all feel lucky when we celebrate this savory Irish tradition.

The sauce may join your favorite dips and spreads. The mix of Buzz Savories Spicy Beer Mustard, Thousand Island Dressing and Horseradish Sauce brings flavor to the table and your guests will follow and ask for another.

Corned Beef Sliders require corned beef and this year I’m roasting mine with a Buzz Savories Honey Mustard glaze, Roasting brings out a subtle and delectable beefy flavor, and roasted corned beef slices paper thin so it’s easy to stack on the slider buns. The Buzz Savories Honey Mustard glaze also adds a touch of sweet with heat. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Buzz Savories Honey Pie

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m feeling happy to greet February 2024 because for us in Nebraska January outdid its reputation for cold and ice. We struggled with below zero temperatures, 30 mph winds and snow blowing and piling up. February  offers more sun, longer days and warmer winds.

I’m making and sending a recipe to celebrate a day devoted to friendship and appreciation for one another and sweetness. I baked a Honey Pie to commemorate Valentine’s Day 2024. 

Buzz Savories’  Honey Pie tastes delicate as a sip of nectar and slightly sweet although not sugar sweet. 

Buzz Savories Honey Pie

With only 5 ingredients + a pie crust, Buzz Savories Honey Pie will fit  sweetly into your Valentine celebrations.  Please, acquire a local honey like Buzz Savories because the flavor of the honey blooms in this recipe, and a local honey surpasses all commercial squeeze bottle honey.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes

What You'll Need:

  • 1 shell frozen pie crust
  • 1 cup Buzz Savories artisanal honey
  • 1 cup whole pecans (enough pecans to completely cover the bottom of the pie crust)
  • 2 Tb. butter
  • 3 eggs beaten but not frothy
  • 1 tsp vanilla

How To Prepare:

  • Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Arrange the pecans across the bottom of the pie crust.
  • Whip the eggs until thoroughly mixed but not frothy.
  • Add the vanilla to the eggs.
  • Place honey in a 2 cup heavy-bottomed sauce pan.
  • Slowly bring the temperature of the honey up to a simmer and when it begins to bubble, take the honey off stove.
  • Add butter to the honey and stir.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla mixture to the honey and quickly whip with a wire whip to thoroughly mix the ingredients. Pour the mixture into the pie shell.
  • Place pie in the pre-heated oven and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Bake until the pie filling looses its wobbly nature and seems firm throughout and the pie crust is toasty brown.
  • Cool to room temperature before cutting and can be made a day ahead, covered loosely and refrigerated.

Notes

You may want to bake the pie on a cooking sheet because it will be full and difficult to carry from work table to oven although it will not bubble over the pie pan

Honey Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

Bright orange and creamy white, full of flavor and easy to make, Honey Roasted Carrots and Parsnips take their turn in my vegetable rotation.   Five, yes, only five ingredients, and all but 2, the carrots and the parsnips, are resting patiently on your pantry shelf.  Use your black iron skillet or a sheet pan for the roasting process.    Buy a local honey like Buzz Savories- better flavor and good for bees and beekeepers, thereby good for fruit trees and vegetable gardens. 

Honey Roasted Carrots and Parsnips add light and good taste to dreary January. I hope you cook this recipe, and if you like it, send me a text message at [email protected]. I will publish it on the Buzzsavoriesllc.com site.
