After our children left home, I had to learn to cook all over again, I began to economize on food purchases by buying some meats in quantity and freezing extras for future menus. My husband especially loves this chicken recipe, which I pared down to fit our life-style today. —Helen Whelan Jarrettsville, Maryland

"This was pretty good. I used boneless chicken and baked for 40 minutes. This sauce was fine as written, but I think a little cayenne pepper would give it a nice zip. This was so easy to make, I'll definitely make again, but probably with a little added spice."

"This is a very tasty sauce for chicken. I used chicken tenderloins instead of breasts, but the results were great."

"Pretty much tastes liked baked chicken; I don't think the sauce did much for it. But my husband and kids did like it."

"This had a really good flavor, but it was a bit on the dry side. The sauce burned on the pan. I'm glad I put foil down because the pan would have been ruined. I would lessen the cooking time for each bake the next time."

"This was very good, and easy! I used boneless skinless chicken breast halves, and baked them for a total of about 35 minutes. Also, I couldn't see any point in using a 9x9 pan for only 2 pieces of chicken, so I used a loaf pan instead. To baste the chicken, all I had to do was turn it over-with a deeper pan the honey mixture covered half of the chicken's depth. I am also going to try this recipe with boneless pork chops."
