When I was a young girl, this was my oldest sister's Sunday dinner. The tradition has continued, as I make this dish twice a month and my four daughters serve their families with this favorite dish. It has an old-fashioned subtle flavor and the chicken is crisp and brown. —Pat Dube, Phoenix, Arizona
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 pounds), cut up
- In a shallow bowl, combine the butter, orange juice, honey and salt. Remove 1/3 cup and set aside for basting. Dip chicken pieces in remaining butter mixture; place in a well-greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
- Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until juices run clear, basting occasionally with reserved butter mixture. Yield: 6 servings.

"The skin tasted pretty good but the flavor wasn't strong enough to get through to the chicken. Might be better on wings."
