"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."

"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"
