4 Tablespoons EssieSpice Coco-For-Garlic Sauce

4 Tablespoons Pure Honey

1 whole young chicken or 2 small Cornish hens

1/8 Cup of water

2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil

  1. Mix the EssieSpice Coco-For-Garlic Sauce with the honey, coconut oil, salt, water, rice wine vinegar and divide into 2. Use one part to marinade the entire chicken and leave in the fridge for 4hours or overnight

  2. Heat the oven on high while we get the chicken ready

  3. Take the other half of the marinade and simmer very slowly on low heat on the stove until thick.

  4. Take the chicken out of the fridge and place in a large grilling pan. Turn the oven to broil to be able to grill and get the skin crispy on the chicken. Allow to stay on broil for 6 minutes or less depending on how crunchy you want the chicken.

  5. take the chicken out of the oven and glaze with the 2nd half of the marinade that was simmering. and cover the entire chicken on both sides. Then reduce the heat to 280 Fahrenheit for an additional 30 minutes to get the chicken cooked through and through. Enjoy with a salad, couscous, rice, quinoa, yams or potatoes.
