"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 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!"
