Latke Love, Honey Mustard Chicken, and Coffee Cake Oatmeal

I had some chicken in the fridge that I had to use today. And I had no ideas what to do with it. I did a search for “Jewish Chicken Recipes”, and this is what I found: Honey Mustard Chicken.

I have no idea if this is a traditional Jewish recipe, but I know latkes are. I must say, these turned out pretty awesome.
