I really wanted to use the truffle honey I made for something other than just brie and bread. I took out some chicken breasts and just started mixing ingredients into the truffle honey, massaged the mixture into the chicken and let it sit over night. The other three people that had this meal really enjoyed it, I however did not really like how it came out. I do not know what was wrong with it but it just was missing something in my opinion. I added some red pepper flakes and liked it a little more but there is still something amiss. So try this one out and see if you love it like everyone else or think something is missing. Better yet if you think something is missing tell me what you think it is so that I can try it out!

Ingredients:
2 chicken breast
3 tbsp truffle honey
1/2 tsp fresh thyme
1/2 tsp fresh rosemary
1 tsp fresh basil
1 tsp fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp orange juice
1 tsp orange zest
1/4 cup sweet onion (diced)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
kosher salt (to taste)
2 tsp olive oil

Using a fork poke both chicken breast to make punctures all over the meat. Mix together the rest of the ingredients and pour into a seal able container such as a Ziploc. Add chicken, seal and shake around till both breast are coated well. Sit in refrigerator and let marinate over night.

Preheat grill to medium high heat.

Remove from the seal able container and cook in microwave for 2 minutes at power level 3. Place immediately onto the grills lower rake and cook for 5 minutes. While cooking baste with the marinade every 2 minutes with a basting brush. Now flip chicken and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until done (baste once more with marinara after 2 minutes of cooking. Remove from grill and let sit 3 minutes before serving.
