"I agree with nancyinwi.....grease the dish! It is terribly sticky if you do not, and I did grease it.... Otherwise, yes, this is a good recipe with nice flavour and easy to make. It will have a repeat performance at our house."

"DO NOT believe the "ungreased baking dish"! The combination of honey and mustard at 350° made a burnt on mess in my Pyrex dish. I have soaked it and scrubbed it three times in order to get it off. Other than that, the chicken had an average taste. I would marinate it in the sauce for at least a couple of hours. And it was impossible to baste during cooking because within a matter of minutes it was burnt and solid."
