- 1 teaspoon mesquite seasoning
- 1 teaspoon Mesquite Smoked Pacific Sea Salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ⅓ cup of New Zealand Multiflora Honey
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper or to taste
- 4 (8-ounce) chicken breasts, trimmed of any excess fat
Mix Mesquite Smoked Pacific Sea Salt, garlic powder, onion powder, New Zealand Multiflora Honey and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon of the mixture onto each side of one chicken breast, coating it evenly. Place chicken in a narrow, deep bowl. Stack chicken breasts and sprinkle top with one teaspoon of the seasoning mixture. Repeat with the remaining two breasts, then spread them out in the bowl. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours.
Preheat the oven to 375° degrees. Grease an 8-by-8-inch casserole dish. Transfer chicken to the dish, overlapping pieces if necessary.
Bake, uncovered, for about 1 hour. If the bottom of the pan is dry, add a couple of tablespoons of water. Cover pan and continue baking until chicken pulls apart with a fork. Approximately another hour or so. Serve hot with potatoes or a vegetable of your choice
