Honey is great any time of day – not just breakfast. And the proof is in incredible savory-sweet recipes like this one: Honey Garlic Chicken Legs. We love it as a way to mix up a weeknight staple like chicken legs into something really special. Any Local Hive Honey will do fine, but we recommend the mellow, bright Local Hive Midwest for a taste everyone will love.
