"I gave it four stars because I honestly didn't see the point in using the honey butter. The chicken itself is cooked in plenty of butter and the breading has a very nice flavor. I felt like the honey butter was not needed at all. I would make this again without it obviously."

"This is a hit in my household! my husband loves this recipe and requests for me to make it at least once a week. I use garlic herb bread crumbs and sald/pepper instead of italian seasonings. I also put extra honey butter sauce on top of the chicken and usually pair this meal with a pasta alfredo... Delicious!"

"I have made this recipe many times, and it is always great. I think this is one of my boyfriend's favorites, because he loves honey, so of course he loves the honey butter in this recipe. I try to only make it for special occasions, because it does seem to take awhile to make, and it has a lot of fat content. It's still a favorite in our house!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 12, 2011

"Pretty darn yummy! Definitely needs the honey butter - I warmed it in the microwave and drizzled it over the hot chicken. I also totally agree with those who baked it. 350 oven for 30-40 minutes made it just right! Decreased the poultry seasoning by half for my teen's tastes, and it was great. Got two thumbs up from the family. :D"

"Very tasty. I baked it ... Put a little veg oil in the bottom of a pan, breaded chicken and put in pan. To be totally unhealthy then put a little butter on top and baked at 350 for about 30 minutes. Also made double on the butter and made rolls and used the honey butter on the rolls as well as the chicken. Very good!!!"

"The combination of honey and the herbs turned out very well, but after trying it in the skillet I decided it would work better being baked because the chicken was still a bit too moist for my tastes. Would make again."

"I heated up the sauce. I did not enjoy standing over the stove preparing this. Some of the bread crumbs fall off in the skillet. This is the only breaded chicken recipe that I have ever made that involved preparing the chicken in a skillet instead of baking it. If I make it again, I will definitely bake it."
