A delicious 18th Century recipe from the county of Somerset; Somerset is the home of England's most notorious cider, 'scrumpy', a seemingly innocent drink to the unwary! However, cider makes an excellent substitute for wine in cooking and tenderises the meat beautifully. The addition of honey blends extremly well with the cider, and adds a complexity to this easily baked chicken dish. Serve with steamed greens and baked or mashed potatoes.
