Cooking instruction summary:

*If time permits, the previous night, place your chicken to brine in a solution consisting of 4 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of salt. While this step is not mandatory, it will definitely make your chicken a lot tastier and juicier, too!Preheat the oven to 375F Cut the chicken into pieces (bone-in breasts cut in half crosswise, legs, thighs, and wings), pat dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper.Set a large skillet over high heat and melt the ghee. Add the pieces of chicken, a few at a time, being mindful not to overcrowd the pan, and cook until crisp and golden, about 4-5 minutes per side.Remove the browned pieces of chicken to a large oven safe dish (a lasagna pan works really well for this.While the chicken is cooking, core and slice the apples. Leave the peel on, though, it looks much prettier that way. Once all the pieces of chicken have been removed, discard the fat except for one or two tablespoons, reduce the heat to medium-high and return the pan to the heat source. Add the apples and cook them until they get nicely golden and caremelized, about 4-5 minutes, then add the honey and continue cooking for a minute or two. Add the lemon juice and zest, coconut aminos, mustard, salt, pepper and fresh herbs and mix well. Finally, toss in the toasted almonds and sesame seeds and then pour that mixture over the reserved chicken.Place in the oven and bake for 55-60 minutes. If you find that the top is starting to get too dark for your liking, place a sheet of aluminum foil over your dish but dont seal it. Allow to rest for about 10 minutes then serve.

Food Trivia

Arachibutyrophobia is the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth.

Food Joke

There is a new virus going around, called "work." If you receive any sort of "work" at all, whether via email, Internet or simply handed to you by a colleague ... DO NOT OPEN IT. This has been circulating around our building for months and those who have been tempted to open "work" or even look at "work" have found that their social life is deleted and their brain ceases to function properly. If you do encounter "work" via email or are faced with any "work" at all, then to purge the virus, send an email to your boss with the words "I've had enough... I'm off to the pub." The "work" should automatically be forgotten by your brain. If you receive "work" in paper-document form, simply lift the document and drag the "work" to your garbage can. Put on your hat and coat and skip to the nearest bar with two friends and order three pints of beer . A.
