Honey Glazed Chicken {Foodie Friday}

I thought I should post some real food around here, lest you think all we eat is dessert. It's just more fun ;)
Chinese food brings back lots of childhood memories for me. We used to always get take out chinese when we would get home from vacation. But we don't really have a good chinese place around here, so..homemade it is. This is so easy and good. I recommend a side of broccoli and some frozen egg rolls on the side if you want to go really crazy!

One Year Ago: Cheesy Broccoli Rice
Two Years Ago: Pasta Carbonara

Honey Glazed Chicken

1 lb of diced uncooked chicken breast (I used 6 tenderloins)
1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Pepper to taste
6 TB butter, divided
1/2 cup honey
6 TB lemon juice
4 TB soy sauce
1 tsp. ground ginger

Heat oven to 350. In a shallow dish combine the flour and seasonings. Dip each piece of chicken in flour mixture and coat evenly.
Melt 2 TB butter in a shallow baking dish, large enough to accommodate chicken in a single layer. Arrange chicken in pan and bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt remaining butter and add honey, lemon juice, soy sauce and ginger.
After chicken has baked the 30 minutes, turn each piece over and pour sauce mixture evenly over chicken. Bake another 30 to 40 minutes basting frequently.

Serve over rice.
