Original recipe makes 4 servings
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Place chicken breasts in a baking dish; sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Mix honey and mustard in a small bowl and pour mixture over chicken. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
Bake in the preheated oven until the juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 40 minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Little Secrets Shakes Up Bite-sized Candy Category
In the 90 years since chocolate candy was introduced to the masses, America’s love affair with the sweet confection has continued to grow and evolve. Chocolate sales in 2014 topped $19 billion, and the category is poised for additional growth in 2015. While mainstream chocolate companies continue to blast out new products each year, aficionados of natural and premium chocolate who want a candy rather than a bar of chocolate have had limited options, sacrificing taste for “natural” ingredients. Enter Little Secrets, a new candy company dedicated to crafting a natural candy coated bite-sized chocolate without compromising on taste.
Little Secrets offers conscious consumers four premium flavors of candy-coated chocolate made with high quality ingredients. The line features four decadent offerings, which includes Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Raspberry, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate. The Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Raspberry product’s are Fair Trade Certified, and all products are made with 100-percent natural ingredients.
Certification is OU-D

FROM KOSHER SCOOP
fresh or frozen cauliflower florets – 1 18-oz pkg
seasoned panko or bread crumbs – 1-2 cups
eggs – 2, lightly beaten
paprika – 1 tsp
onion powder – 1/4 tsp
garlic powder – 1/4 tsp
salt – 1/4 tsp
black pepper – 1/8 tsp
Srirachanaise Dipping Sauce:
honey – 2 tsp
Sriracha – 2 tsp
lime juice – 2 tsp
Dijon mustard – 2 tsp, optional, but adds extra heat
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Prepare two small bowls: In one bowl combine eggs and spices and whisk together until combined. In the second bowl, place the panko or bread crumbs.
Dip each cauliflower floret into the egg mixture, making sure that it’s completely coated, then dip it into the bread crumb mixture and transfer to the baking sheet. When all the cauliflower is breaded, spray it with cooking spray for a moist and crunchy exterior. Bake 30 minutes until golden.
In a small bowl, combine all srirachanaise ingredients. Whisk together until smooth.
Dip cooled breaded cauliflower in and enjoy.
Note: If you’re using frozen cauliflower, you need not defrost it before breading and baking.
Tip: If you don’t have sriracha, you can substitute Frank’s hot sauce and still get a fantastic flavor. Sriracha does have a different flavor that is worthwhile to try.
