MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 22, 2014

This was very easy & very yummy! I was pleasantly surprised! I used chicken leg quarters and did not separate them. There is a hint of sweetness and a nice lemon flavor. Very juicy!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 21, 2011

The chicken came out juicy enough but the flavor combination was very strange. I think it had to do with the oregano. Edible, but not very good.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 22, 2011

I made a few modifications to this recipe before I made it the first time. I used basil (1 1/2 teaspoons) instead of oregano, and I made the recipe with 4 chicken thighs (nopt leg quarters). i browned the chicken in a skillet. After removing the chicken to a baking dish, I added the combined sauce ingredients to the hot skillet and let it reduce a bit and carmelize the honey somewhat. Then I baked the whole thing at 350 for 30 minutes. I served it with fresh cooked Farfelle in an olive oil, lemon and basil sauce. Very delicious!!!
