Better Homes and Gardens Honey-Glazed Chicken with Peppers and Goat Cheese

My whole family really enjoys eating chicken dishes. Each of us has their own preferences for which type is our favorite, I'm personally partial to whole roasted chicken. Roasted chicken reminds me of my mom growing up, she absolutely loved chicken prepared this way and she would make or buy it frequently. I lost my mother before my kids were able to meet her, so I cherish these food memories and try to pass her on to my kids through cooking. The July issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine had a recipe for Honey-Glazed Chicken with Peppers and Goat Cheese, which looked delicious and easy.

This recipe has 11 ingredients (10 if you cut out the red jalapenos). I was unable to find red jalapenos at any of the stores I frequent in my area, so I cut them out of the recipe. The recipe has them as an optional ingredient and they are roasted under the chicken, so I don't think it would have made a significant difference to the taste. The 3 chickens which I purchsed were closer to 4 to 5 pounds. making my baking time significantly longer, about an hour. My total time for the recipe was approximately 10 minutes of prep and about 2 hr 15 min of roasting.

These chickens turned out delicious. The skin was crisp and the goat cheese was delicious. I am planning on using the leftovers tomorrow for chicken salad and I will still have enough for a pasta dish later in the week. That's one of the great things about this recipe, it makes a lot of chicken. There was easily enough for two more meals after my family of four had eaten their fair share. This recipe would be great to feed a crowd or to prepare for dishes using the leftovers later in the week.
