This was pretty good. I used boneless chicken and baked for 40 minutes. This sauce was fine as written, but I think a little cayenne pepper would give it a nice zip. This was so easy to make, I'll definitely make again, but probably with a little added spice.

This is a very tasty sauce for chicken. I used chicken tenderloins instead of breasts, but the results were great.

I made this for dinner for a few friends and everyone loved it! I've already had people asking me to make it again. It is worth trying.

Pretty much tastes liked baked chicken; I don't think the sauce did much for it. But my husband and kids did like it.

This had a really good flavor, but it was a bit on the dry side. The sauce burned on the pan. I'm glad I put foil down because the pan would have been ruined. I would lessen the cooking time for each bake the next time.

This was very good, and easy! I used boneless skinless chicken breast halves, and baked them for a total of about 35 minutes. Also, I couldn't see any point in using a 9x9 pan for only 2 pieces of chicken, so I used a loaf pan instead. To baste the chicken, all I had to do was turn it over-with a deeper pan the honey mixture covered half of the chicken's depth. I am also going to try this recipe with boneless pork chops.
