Recipe by Angela Curtis

I made this up myself, using No More Dry Chicken Chicken and another recipe as a basis. I got rave reviews for it, even though I thought it was better cold (hence the title). I've only made it once so far, and I'm hoping that it wasn't just a fluke that it was good before. :) For those that care, I used raw honey and cooking wine. I'm not sure if I can change the title later, but if anyone can come up with a better one, I'm open to ideas.
