"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."

"I have made this in the oven and slow cooker and both turned out just fine. Loved it."

"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."
