Baked Honey Chicken And a Warning

Doom welcomes the chill to his beloved Latverian mountains. We does not however welcome the tourists who journey to leaf-watch. Latveria is a tranquil nation otherwise -- made safe and stable by the iron gloves of Doom. But now, sadly, we are beset by Hawaiian shirts and baseball caps. It's a parade of horrible Magnum PI wannabes reeking of airport hot dogs in a desperate need to eat gobble comfort food before daring to try our unknown vittles. Doom has many times commanded the Latverian Tourism Board to banish such trolls from our lovely cobblestones, to no avail. Doom can't even buy avail.

But Doom realizes that these slovenly non-Slavs can put some shekels in Doom's caped coffers. Thus, Doom's Sojourner's Sumptuous Sucker Snacks, the newest vendor booth at the corner of Doom Avenue and Rue du Doom. Doombots are stationed in shifts, offering delicious tidbits for top Latverian currency, the magnifi-cent. And this week, the Fantastic Four Ss offers the following:

Honey Baked Chicken

Honey Glaze:
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons citrus juice (lime, lemon, or orange)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon onion powder

Doom commands you to:

Combine glaze ingredients in a bowl. Yes, this is distinct from Doom's Honey Pepper Fried Chicken Stir-Fry.

Brush the mixture on 1 pound of chicken (Doom prefers tenderloins for the Fantastic Four Ss; they're cheaper than chicken breasts, even at the same weight) and bake for 25 minutes at 380.

Upon removing chicken from the oven, spoon the thickened glaze from the baking pan and spoon onto pieces. You should find a thickened glaze goop to use as a topping. This is delicious.

Note: The dish also works as a salad topping. Just chop up the chicken and add greens and veggies.

Doom is displeased to find a classic Latverian recipe within the pages of a funny book called New Mutants. Not because the recipe is a secret from our golden land, no, but because ingesting it will only serve to ruin the reputation of Latverian fare.

Doom will only say this: Pack your Pepto.
