Reviews for Simple Honey Mustard Chicken
"I made this with all drumsticks. The sauce and flavor was fantastic. However, the skin did not get crispy enough for our taste. So we ended up taking off most of the skin and therefore missed out on a lot of the flavor. I may try this recipe again at a higher oven temperature to try to crisp the skin up more."
"I don't try too many new recipes because I have a picky eater at home, but this was delicious and my picky eater loved it. It was easy to prepare too."
"I poured all of the sauce onit, didn't save it for dipping. Very good and easy!"
"Absolutely delicious! chicken turned out very moist and the sauce was really good."
"Prepared it just as instructed, but put all the sauce on as it cooked. It was very moist and the whole family loved it!"
"Very moist and flavorful even without the extra dipping sauce."
"My kids liked this recipe so much that they fought over the last piece of chicken! They and my husband told me that I have to make this again!"
"I guess I just do not like the taste of honey mustard cooked. I think it is a taste you must have to like it."
"I was really skeptical about this recipe because the ingredients don't really seem to go together, but I tried it anyways. It was very tasty. The only thing I would change is to use less Italian seasoning next time."
"very good! The sauce tastes a million times better after it's been baked on the chicken, so don't be discouraged if it tastes a little weird before hand!"
