Hardy Haberman Honorary Baked Honey-Lime Chicken Thighs


    • 3 limes
    • ¼ cup honey
    • 3 small garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 teaspoon parsley
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon black pepper, coarsely ground
    • ¼ teaspoon roasted red pepper flakes
    • about 5 lbs chicken thighs
    • 1 bunch green onions sliced & separated white and green parts
    • lime wedges as garnish


Remember any time you are going to cook chicken. Put it in a plastic bag with nonfat buttermilk and let the pieces sit overnight. Then rinse off and pat dry before starting to cook! ALLWAYS!

Preheat over to 450 degrees. Grate the zest from three limes. Put in small bowl and set aside. Then cut the limes in two and squeeze the juice out of them into a bowl. Limes do not have the troubles you find with lemon seeds. Measure how much juice you got, because you will want the same amount of honey. Remember: spray the measuring cup with cooking spray before measuring the honey and it will slide right out. Then mince the garlic and chop the green onion separating the white from the green parts.

 In a large bowl mix honey, lime juice, minced garlic, parsley, salt, red pepper flakes, and the white parts of the onion. Then mix in half of the grated lime zest.

Line a baking pan that has ½ inch sides with foil.
Coat each thigh with mixture in the bowl and arrange in the pan. Put the larger thighs on the outside and the smaller ones on the inside.
Bake the chicken 30 35 minutes, occasionally brushing chicken with glaze in pan, until chicken is cooked through. Juice will run clear.
Transfer chicken to serving dish. Drizzle with pan juices. Garnish with remaining lime zest and green parts of the onions.

For sides:
slave suggests fixing white rice and roasting Brussels sprouts.
For the sprouts wash well and cut as much of the stem as you can from the round part. Toss these in 1 tbs of olive oil and spread on a foil lined sheet to put in oven along side of the chicken. When you brush the thighs, stir the sprouts. When they start to get brown edges (caramelazation) remove to a serving bowl and cover with foil.
The honey-lime coating on the chicken offers a bright twist on an old favorite and presents well on a bed of white rice. The roasted green vegetables will balance nicely for a fantastic dinner.

Slave has to admit that it left the sprouts in just a bit too long and they were past their prime for looks. However they did taste great! The Honey-Lime is a welcome change from the standard Bar B Que taste of sweet and sour tomato based sauce. Hope You enjoy this unique chicken dish.

Hardy Haberman

Slave is honored to continue its series dedicated to LGBT heroes and leaders. Today's leader is Hardy Haberman: an author, filmmaker, educator, and lecturer. He is a prominent leader in our leather/ fetish/ BDSM community, and often the featured speaker at leather events and contests.
In the mid-1970s, Haberman become involved as an activists in the Dallas Gay Political Caucus, the city's first LGBT advocacy group. He soon found his calling in the leather subculture.
In 1984 Haberman joined the board of the Dallas chapter of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). In the late 1990's, Haberman was a well-known educator in leather circles, teaching classes at events such as Texas Leather Pride in Austin, Spring Inequality in Houston, Southeast Leatherfest in Atlanta, Kinky Kollege in Chicago, Leathermans Discussion Group in San Francisco, and at other events throughout the United States and Canada.
In 1999, The National Leather Association International named Hardy Haberman as their Man of the Year. The first of many such distinguished awards he continues to earn.
Haberman writes a column for the Dallas Voice called Flagging Left. He is also a columnist for Leatherati in addition to his popular blog and other internet writings.
He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the world renowned Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance.
Professionally he is a marketing specialist and filmmaker. His 1995 documentary on the leather lifestyle, “LEATHER,” has won numerous awards and appeared in festivals around the world; and his latest film, “Out of the Darkness: The Reality of SM,” is currently being used by health care professionals around the world.
His books can be found on Amazon and his videos are available on YouTube.
It has been truly an honor for slave to have the chance to "chat" with this leader of one of the largest segments in the LGBT community.

Haberman showed concern over the way we often observe the Stonewall Uprising.
"I am reminded of the long road to equality LGBT people have walked. "We have been berated, mugged, disparaged and cast out for our sexuality and our gender expression, and yet we've made great progress.
"Yet there is still a long way to go. "I am reminded that the spark that started the modern LGBT rights movement was not kindled by men and women trying to look and act like straight people, but by a rowdy and rag tag group of mostly transgender and gay folks who were sick and tired of being harassed.
"It is in that spirit that gay Pride parades began – first as protest marches and then as celebration of our culture and differences."
"Parades in big cities today are corporate affairs with big money sponsors and increasingly tightened rules of behavior. "The prevailing wisdom is that we LGBT people need to "fit in" and look and act just like the heterosexual population, and that to stand out or in any way rebel would be bad for business and surely would lead to more persecution rather than less. "Additionally, more conservative folks point to the media and how it focuses on 'drag queens and leathermen' and what negative images they are for the general public. "really?"
"That type of assimilationist thinking....offers no reason for LGBT people to participate."

Let us say "Thank You!" to all of our leaders in the LGBT community and consider all of their hard earned knowledge as we celebrate this month of Pride.
