    Very tasty, the honey and mustard made a very good sauce for the chicken.

    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.
