Good recipe.I did not have honey or green onion. I did add whole cup of chicken broth and a tsp of cumin. I also used bone in chicken breasts instead of thighs and drumsticks. I placed it over brown and wild rice combination. Would definetly make again. Thanks for recipe. Next time I might add some different herbs.
