SO great! I didn't follow the measurements, I just squeezed enough honey to thickly coat the bottom of a small sized pot and then added 2 tbs of butter. I squeezed the lemon juice from the two ends of the lemon after cutting on the chicken before baking as well. I generously sprinkled salt & pepper before baking, as well as the pepper & rosemary after, it was delicious! Did take about 12 minutes extra to cook, but was juicy and tender after about 32-35 minutes. Served with sweet potatoes.
