I've been known to make this recipe twice a week—it's so delicious. I like to call it "sticky chicken" since the slightly sweet sauce of honey, lemon juice and hers nicely coats the chicken thighs.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2014

Maybe it was just me, but I thought this was rather bland... It just tasted like plain baked chicken.

I made this with boneless chicken thighs. Delicious and not too sweet.

MY REVIEW

The only 3 things I did different was I added the lemon rinds to the cooking process and the smell was very refreshing. I also used the juices to baste the chicken but it seemed to was the spices off so I added a dash of honey & oregano during the last 5 min of cooking time. It made the chicken look more flavorful and the taste was very good. How can you go wrong with garlic, honey lemon and oregano! Very good!

This was super easy and flavorful! I have 4 kids between 10 and 3 and they devoured it. My 6 year old had 2. Anything that's this good and takes 5 minutes to put together is a winner for me!
