Baked Asian Style Honey Chicken with Garlic Feta Dip

 A four day holiday calls for variety in meals and hence experimenting. What I love about allrecipes website  is it lets me search for recipes as per ingredients. So I keyed in chicken and I find this Asian style baked honey chicken and I key in Feta cheese and I find this Garlic Feta dip.  Here goes.....

Baked Asian Style Honey Chicken

6 Chicken thighs
Soya sauce  and honey : 2 tbspns each.
One onion sliced.
3 tbspns chopped onions.
1 tbspn grated ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic.

Marinate, in a 9 by 3 inches baking dish,  the chicken  for an hour in soya sauce, honey, chopped onions, ginger and garlic. I marinated them overnight .

Preheat oven to 220 degrees C .  Bake the chicken at 220 degrees C  for 30 minutes. Turn the chicken pieces over and bake for another  10 minutes and grill (top and bottom) for 5 minutes.

Garlic Feta Dip

1 cup Feta cheese
1 cup Greek yoghurt
3 cloves peeled garlic.
1 bowl chopped and steamed vegetables (corn, carrot, peas)
Salt and pepper for seasoning.
Blend the cheese , yoghurt and garlic  in the mixie. The original recipe stops at this. But since, I wanted soem vegetables too, I stir fried the steamed vegetables for a minute in pepper and salt.  and added the same to the dip. Turned out delicious. Please remember, Feta is very salty and hence season with care. If you find the dip over tangy, add 1/2 a teasoon of sugar to temper the same. Do remember, there should absolutely be no hint of sweetness  or the dip will get crucified.. ;) ;)
