I totally meant to put five stars! I tried to change it but I can't. Sorry
This is one of our favorite recipes. Every time I make it for someone, I have to give them the recipe. I don't think I've met anyone who "just likes it". Plus I usually have all the ingredients on hand.
The glaze was very yummy. I accidentally forgot to put it in the microwave first and I think that may have helped it bind better because when I cooked my chicken and pulled it off the pan, all the glaze just ran right off of it. But i will def make again.
