"A take on a classic from Sheila Lukins and Julee Rosso’s “The Silver Palate Cookbook,” this recipe is at the same time complex and easy to execute, risky in its separate parts yet satisfyingly harmonious as a whole. In this version the brown sugar is swapped with honey, which adds a slightly floral element to the dish as well as a shiny gloss. The addition of cayenne in the marinade gives it a nice kick and a squeeze of lemon before serving helps to lighten up an otherwise fairly heavy chicken dish."
