Honey Thyme Chicken #SundaySupper

Honey Thyme Chicken
What do you think of when you hear the term, “unprocessed foods”?
Andrew Wilder, an unprocessed foods proponent calls it using “The Kitchen Test”. “Unprocessed food is any food that could be made by a person with reasonable skill in a home kitchen with whole-food ingredients.” No refined sugar or flour for example.
I chose to make a simple chicken dish. Instead of frying in oil (which is processed) I quickly brown the chicken over high heat in a little homemade broth then simmer in the honey thyme sauce.

You can serve this Honey Thyme Chicken as an entree or by itself as an appetizer. The reduced sauce lightly coats the chicken.

Thanks DB aka Foodie Stuntman from Crazy Food Stunts for hosting this unprocessed event!

    It sounds very flavorful! I think there is a lot of different intrepretations of unprocessed, but I do believe that going home grown and home made is the way to go to start with, which to me is unprocessed! :)
