My family raves over this nicely browned chicken. The rich honey glaze gives each luscious piece a spicy tang. This dish is simple enough to prepare for a family dinner and delightful enough to serve to guests. -Ruth Andrewson, Leavenworth, Washington

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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"

"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."
