Looking for an alternative to turkey for Thanksgiving? How’s about this recipe, Honey Roasted Chicken (Gà Nướng Mật Ong). For us the idea of eating a 10-20 lbs turkey sounds a bit too much. We won’t be able to finish it in one shot and probably end up throw more than half of it away. That would be such a waste. A chicken would be just right for our family size. We could finish it up in two days max. With commonly available ingredients, this recipe is simple enough to make. The skin is crispy and the meat is juicy and tasty. Our daughter would ask for the meat with skin on it 🙂

Roasting chicken at home probably costs the same at getting one at Costco, but making it as a family is priceless.
