Nektar Naturals: Convenient Honey For All Life’s Moments (+ Chicken Thighs Recipe)

Confession:

I have a sweet tooth y’all.

I try to keep it in check, honestly, but every now and again I need to the sweetness. Especially at breakfast. And sometimes in the afternoon as a pick me up. And, occasionally, I find a way to play on sweet with the healthy at dinner.

I *do* try to keep it in moderation. But sometimes, there’s nothing like a spoonful of honey in your tea, fresh pancakes for breakfast, and honeyed chicken thighs for dinner.

Who’s with me on this?

I’m obsessed with Nektar Naturals honey crystals. I’m talking about non-GMO, all natural, naturally gluten-free, super tasty honey amazingness. In crystal form. (Aka itsy bitsy pellets of honey!) For more on this sweet non-sticky honey goodness, check out the Nectar Naturals website.

Why do I like these honey crystals so much? Because they allow me that taste of sweetness-without going overboard. (Or venturing into unhealthy land.)

It’s great to soothe a sore throat in your tea.

It’s great to used in baking to make our favorite Oven Baked Organics gluten-free pancakes (with added local blueberries, yum!) for breakfast.

And it’s even great to use to make your favorite dinner.

Plus, it comes in a small package–meaning I can keep the crystals in my purse for emergencies. πŸ˜‰ (Because sometimes a situation just calls for honey y’all!)

It also makes cooking loads easier. I always struggle with measuring honey for recipes–especially when I want to make a more savory dish with honey. Maybe I’m just a klutz, but I never seem to get the honey ratio right….It just kinda all goos together in one part of my dish. No matter how much I mix! These crystals allow for easy measuring. (Not to mention no measuring devices required–each packet is 1 tsp!)

I made some of the BEST CHICKEN EVER using this honey, if I do say so myself. It’s BEENOMINAL chicken! HAHAHAHAHAHA. But seriously, this chicken is GOOD chicken.

And…

LUCKY YOU!

I’m sharing that recipe with you today.

You will love it. I swear. It may not be the most photographic, (you should have SEEN the first photos I took. This is actually the pretty version!) but I promise you this is some good chicken. Who needs thighs that look pretty?!? Not I! I just want them to be TASTY! Mmm.

Once you have Nectar Naturals honey crystals your life will be forever transformed!! (Psst! They are also a sustainable company, using eco-friendly materials and with efforts to help with bee conservation. What whaaaat!)
