I've been known to make this recipe twice a week—it's so delicious. I like to call it "sticky chicken" since the slightly sweet sauce of honey, lemon juice and hers nicely coats the chicken thighs.

"Really good and super easy - used bone-in, skinless thighs and used freeze dried oregano flakes (bottled from grocery store) - I sprinkled the oregano right over the top of the chicken after I poured the sauce over it (instead of mixing the oregano in the sauce). Was a great easy to fix dinner - lots of juice to go with steamed rice - will definitely make again. That for sharing the recipe."

"Very light and tasty dish. I added some of the pan drippings to flavor the buttered egg noodles I served on the side. I will probably add a little pepper next time, but will definitely make this again."

"Maybe it was just me, but I thought this was rather bland... It just tasted like plain baked chicken."

"The only 3 things I did different was I added the lemon rinds to the cooking process and the smell was very refreshing. I also used the juices to baste the chicken but it seemed to was the spices off so I added a dash of honey & oregano during the last 5 min of cooking time. It made the chicken look more flavorful and the taste was very good. How can you go wrong with garlic, honey lemon and oregano! Very good!"

"This was super easy and flavorful! I have 4 kids between 10 and 3 and they devoured it. My 6 year old had 2. Anything that's this good and takes 5 minutes to put together is a winner for me!"

"I thought ths was Great! Next time I may put a little more honey. The drippings on the bottom I just pured on top of everyones plate, to give it extra flavor. Even my little ones ate it all"

"I hate to be a negative amid so many positives, but I made this dish last night...followed the recipe exactly except I took off the skin plus all visible fat....and it was disappointing. There was a lot of juice in the bottom of the pan that tasted okay, but the thighs themselves weren't sticky with sauce....just a few oregano leaves dotted their surface. They were well cooked and tender, but just not anything special taste-wise."
