Spicy Honey Garlic Chicken with Kenzo and Kloe

Oftentimes when you're caught in between meal preparations and trying to get all the work done, you're left with ready-to-cook preserved meats.

I'm long done with that, but, I'll be damned if I say I don't consume Vigan longanisa, bacon, and deli.  Even my favorite Italian hams were profused with salt, seasonings, and preservatives manufacturers dare not say.

Even so, I try my best to give my family healthy and safe food for their optimum health but not veering away from flavorful meals.

Like many moms, I also look for products that provide nutrient-dense food.  It doesn't have to be pure organic, but the ingredients must be at least 90% natural.  Although I would love to go pure organic, it may mean breaking the bank and it's still hard to buy them.  I never use MSG or processed salt and I'm close to not using even Sinigang seasonings.

That is why I am so thankful when I found out about the natural seasonings from Kenzo and Kloe's Nature Farm.

Kenzo and Kloe’s Nature Farm has in mind health and wellness consumers which they believe to be deserving of safe, high quality and healthy food.  The person behind it is an advocate of natural and chemical free farming.

So, I thought of using some of their products in one of my favorite recipes - Honey Garlic Wings.

Last Christmas, I used their Steak Rub in our Rib Eye Steak, then had our morning honey drink using 1 tbsp. of their Honey with Cayenne.  Would you believe me, when I say, I was sold already! Now, I think my kitchen wouldn't be the same without these products.  It's like life getting easier but I'm promised to yummy dishes every time and without sacrificing our health plus lessening carbon footprint.

Their Steak Rub is composed of naturally grown coarse chilies with fried garlic and herbs from their own farm in Quezon.

Here's what I love about this product, with cayenne, as it's major component, whatever you use it with your food becomes Metabolic-Booster and Detoxifier and is also an Antioxidant.  Moreover, their products are said to prevent & control heart attack and are anti-cancer.

The Bonggan Mix on the other hand, is a seasoning claimed to be the best-kept secret of the Bicolanos.  They use this as their secret ingredient to add zest and flavor even to the simplest fried rice or any sautéed food. Kenzo and Kloe's Nature Farm's original mixture of chili powder and powdered dried fish are the only ingredients in this jar.  Humble kitchen components but sure adds that punch to every dish you cook.

Without no more adieu, here is the recipe.
