Honeyed Chicken Medieval Recipe- Game of Thrones Food Recipes


A tasty and healthy favorite food that you can easily make right at home – and the homemade version tastes a hundred  times better!


“Hungry again?” he asked. There was still half a honeyed chicken in the center of the table. Jon reached out to tear off a leg, then had a better idea. He knifed the bird whole and let the carcass slide to the floor between his legs. Ghost ripped into it in savage silence.

Serves 3 to 4   
Preparation: 15 minutes
Sauce: 30 minutes   
Cooking: 1 to 1½ hours

Pairs well with Crusty White Bread, Modern Turnips in Butter, mead

This dish has a Northern feel. The apples, vinegar, honey, and dried berries invoke the chill of frosty evenings spent in the warm feast hall of Winterfell. The sauce reduces down to a thick, syrupy consistency, which melts enticingly when drizzled over the hot chicken. The dried fruits soak up the sauce and are bursting with flavor by the time they grace your plate.


1 whole chicken for roasting, about 6 pounds
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup apple cider vinegar
¾ cup honey
1 to 2 teaspoons mint, dried or fresh, chopped
½ cup currants, raisins, dried cherries, dried cranberries, etc.
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Preheat the oven to 450°F.


1) Pat the chicken dry, then rub it down with melted butter and sprinkle with salt. This will make the skin crispy and delicious. 

2) Cook for approximately 1 hour, or until the juices run clear when you pierce the thigh meat with a sharp knife and the breast meat is no longer pink.

3) While your chicken is roasting, combine all the remaining ingredients in a saucepan and allow the sauce to simmer until the dried fruit plumps and the sauce reduces to half its original volume, about 30 minutes. 

4) When the chicken is done, spread half the sauce and currants over the bird and reserve the other half to serve as gravy.

8 Surefire Tips for Buying Fresh Chicken

1) Check the "sell-by" date, if properly refrigerated, it should remain fresh 2-3 days after that date. A "use-by" date, indicates the meat should be cooked or frozen by that date.

2) When buying your chicken meat from the supermarket, make certain that you do all your other shopping first and that you select the chicken meat last, just before reaching the check-out, as this will reduce the amount of time the chicken meat is spent outside of the fridge or freezer. 

3) On choosing chicken from the meat department, look for packaging that does not contain any holes or tears and make sure that the chicken meat is cool to the touch, so that you are certain that it has been adequately stored.

4) Check the chicken meat color. Fresh chicken is pink. Veer away from any bird that has grayish meat or transparent looking skin, which is a sign that it's been sitting around in the supermarket freezer for a while. Be sure to peek in the crevices, like under the wings and thighs. It's also important to examine the chicken skin for any tears or signs of rough handling. Damaged  skin and chicken meat tend to deteriorates faster.

5) Choose plump-looking pieces, appearance is important. Look for skins that are not transparent or patchy in appearance

6) Press against the chicken. Fresh chicken meat has skin that springs back when you press against it. If the skin sinks, or feels hard, the meat has been sitting around for a long time. You also need to check if the chicken feels bloated, a sure sign that it's been injected with water to fool customers into thinking that it's heavier than it really is.

7) If you are buying a frozen bird from the supermarket, it should be extremely hard to touch and show no signs of freezer damage. If ice crystals are present on the surface of the packaging, it means that the poultry has been stored at temperatures that are much too cold.

8) Smell the chicken meat. Fresh chicken should have no smell. You'll know rotting chicken when you smell it, but since your nose can be desensitized from inhaling the odors of spices (or other things sold in the supermarket or farmer's market) buy your chicken first.
