I had a very glamorous friend who could throw on a pair of jeans and a tee shirt with a crazy-fabulous necklace and go anywhere, looking elegant and cool. (Me, not so much. I would look like I’d forgotten to do laundry and the necklace was a failed last ditch effort to be presentable.)
This honey soy chicken is a bit like jeans and a tee shirt. It is easy and comfortable and just feels so good– the perfect midweek dinner to throw together. But those lemon and orange slices that roast along with the chicken– those are Trudy’s necklaces. They dress up the dinner, make it more interesting– and ideal to serve to company. This is also a great dish to make on a Sunday so you’ve got leftover chicken to sustain you during the week. And for the record, if there are any roasted citrus slices leftover, they make a glorious embellishment for even the simplest green salad.
