Herb Encrusted Chicken w/Honey Butter

BREAKING THE YOM KIPPUR FAST is one of the oldest and most meaningful traditions for Jews across the globe. Here is a wonderfully easy way to serve a crowd with the best combination of two popular ingredients. This dish gives a little pomp and ceremony to the typically baked or roasted chicken.


4 eggs
2 cups panko bread crumbs
4 Tablespoons chopped parsley
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon chopped rosemary
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
12 chicken breasts, bone in
1 stick butter

2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 cup honey

Place eggs in a shallow bowl. Combine bread crumbs and seasonings in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken breasts first in the eggs, then in the bread crumb mixture. Pressing to cover completely.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in butter 4-5 minutes on each side to sear. Place in baking dish and bake in the oven @350 degrees for 20-30 min or until a thermometer reads 165°.
While chicken is baking: Combine butter and honey. Chill until firm and serve a portion on top of each breast piece. Yield: 12 servings.

Serve this chicken with a Noodle Kugel and Asparagus Spears or Roasted Potatoes w/carrots and brussel sprouts. A salad of field greens with chopped apple and pecans w/Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing makes for a complete and delicious meal anytime, not just for the holiday!
