Please Feed Mr. Bear ~ Tangy Chicken Breasts with Citrus Sage Sauce #Recipe

It's true.  I'll admit it.  Although I can certainly whip up a mean chicken stir fry and know my way around vegetarian lasagna, this Mom usually does not do the cooking in this house.  With my typical blasted day job schedule causing me to arrive home well after the rest of the family has eaten, and usually ran off to a sports practice or activity, with my husband and my split schedules, kitchen creations usually fall to him.

I certainly don't mind cooking and actually enjoy baking a great deal, however my lack of regular time in the kitchen usually means I need a bit of time to dig into a new recipe.  Although I have certainly been known to use a boxed cake mix or two, especially when on a mission to create twenty plus cakes for the school carnival, I love to carve out a bit of time to cook and bake from scratch.

To give my well-deserving husband a bit of a break, I have decided to tackle a few new recipes this weekend, to put a smile on Mr. Grumbly Bear's face and hope to hear that happy sigh of satisfaction.  What better way to satisfy a hungry bear than a delicious entree created with a touch of the goodness of honey?  I found a great listing of tasty honey recipes at the National Honey Board website and am looking forward to a bit of creation time with them in the kitchen this weekend.

Unfortunately, I am the top chef in our house. The kids refuse to eat their dad's cooking unless he is grilling. I like chicken in lime butter sauce. Yum!
