Baked Honey-Glazed Chicken

When I was a young girl, this was my oldest sister's Sunday dinner. The tradition has continued, as I make this dish twice a month and my four daughters serve their families with this favorite dish. It has an old-fashioned subtle flavor and the chicken is crisp and brown. —Pat Dube, Phoenix, Arizona

    This dish had no glazed on the chicken, it did not have a lot of flavor.

    The taste was good but very mild. Was expecting the flavor to pop more.

    The skin tasted pretty good but the flavor wasn't strong enough to get through to the chicken. Might be better on wings.
