Reviews for Honey-Glazed Chicken
"This is so easy and delicious. My picky 2 years old son said "yummy" several times. I used things because that's what I have and also substituted a tablespoon of lime juice instead of lemon juice. I definitely going to make this again."
"Very good. I used boneless chicken breast, and only 1/2 the recommended salt. Baked for ~40 minutes, then put on Broiler to crisper. Served over fresh spinach."
"My husband loved this and so did I. Very moist! Great over rice with a side salad :)"
"This has been my husband's favorite chicken recipe for several years now! Always the way he requests chicken :) I follow the recipe exactly and it always comes out awesome. Sweet and slightly spicy with the cayenne. Great recipe that's become a staple in our home."
"Wonderful chicken dish. I did use boneless, skinless, chicken breast. My husband liked it. I will be making it more in future. Thank you very much"
"I made this often years ago when it was first published. We love it. It had been awhile and I reintroduced my family to it recently and we still love it. The flavor of the glaze is wonderful! No changes other than I will use bone-in chicken breasts. Highly recommended!"
"Easy preparations and delicious!"
"Worshipguy said he didn't like this in part because it needed frequent basting but I forgot to do that and it turned out just fine! I like the curry flavor"
"Delicious chicken dish"
"The chicken was very moist and had good flavor, but I don't know about the simplicity. I didn't like the fact that you had to baste so frequently. I also halved the amount of cayenne and curry because my wife don't like spicy foods. Next time I might try this with boneless skinless chicken breasts and see how they turn out."
"I've been making this one for years. Everyone who has tried it loves it. My family looks forward to company and this recipe."
"My family requires a gluten free diet, so I substituted GF pancake mix for the flour. My entire family loved it!!! I will definitely make it again."
"love love love"
"I have made this recipe for years. It is always a crowd pleaser. Everyone from grandmother to grandchild loves it."
"This has become one of my go to chicken recipes. My family loves the heat from the cayenne and the curry (I actually add a little more because we love curry flavor so much). This has definitely become a favorite in my household."
"I think I'll find a recipe that does not include the curry. I thought it was okay but the curry was too powerful for my taste."
"This chicken bakes to a beautiful, appetizing color! I don't like spicy, so I reduced the curry to 1/2 teaspoon and it was great. That you don't have to brown the chicken first saves time."
"This was an easy dish to prepare and the chicken was extremely moist and tasty."
"This has been a family favorite for over 10 years now. It's sweet & juicy. The curry is not over-powering. Fantastic. We actually crave this dish!"
"Just made this for dinner. Hubby and I loved it! I used all chicken breasts on the bone...delicious. We love the sweet flavor."
"Quick and easy but I found it lacking that kick of flavor."
"I had defrosted some chicken and just wanted a "change" in the way I cooked it, so I came to TOH - boy, was I glad I did!!This was the second recipe I looked at - so tasty! finger licken good! and well received by the family. thank you"
"I have made this recipe many times also. It's very easy and well worth the time it takes to baste it. My husband requests this sometimes, too. High praise!"
