This followed this recipe as directed and my husband and I enjoyed it very much. I served it with brown rice and broccoli. Next time, maybe I will marinade the chicken a bit before cooking, in order to increase flavor.

I made this recipe and served it with white rice, the only thing I changed and found it to give it great flavor was that I used brown sugar instead of the honey (not crazy about honey), it was really good and will make this recipe again.

I made the sauce first and let the chicken marinate in it for a few hours, then followed the rest of the recipe except I added about a tablespoon of KC Masterpiece hickory brown sugar BBQ sauce to the sauce when it was just about done. It came out SOOOOO good. The sauce to me was a little bitter and the BBQ sauce sweetened it up.

Very easy and tasty, I did not remove the chicken, while making the sauce, just make sure you do not overcook the chicken. Everyone loved it and I would serve it to company.

Easy to make.Dinner was ready in 30 minutes. The kids just loved this chicken. And the orzo pesto as a side dish was a great choice. We will have this again real soon!
