Honey-Marinated Chicken

My family can't get enough of this finger-lickin'-good chicken, and I often double the recipe. The sauce can also be used when grilling chicken. —Harriet Lusch, Muncie, Indiana

    Made as instructed (using apple juice) and the only flavor that came through was the soy sauce. Couldn't discern honey at all. Disappointed.

    This recipe has wonderful flavor, was simple to make, and my whole family loved it. I didn't use the sauce as a marinade however, I basted the chicken every 20 minutes, and the sauce in the pan after the chicken was done, we put over rice.
