This is a lovely little repice. Quite delicious. However I recommend you cook the chicken breasts slowly and don't add the honey glaze until the last 4 to 5 minutes of cooking as it burns very quickly. Keping that in mind, Please try this quick and easy recipe. :)

Made this recipe last night. It came out very well. It was a little on the sweet side..but then again I could not find red pepper flakes and substituted ground red pepper. next time I will add more of the red pepper, and more garlic. I was afraid to use too much! Hubby is just getting used to me cooking things with a little kick! Will definitely make again! Made extra sauce to put over steamed rice, and served with fresh spinach.

This was a delicious recipe but a bit on the spicy side (which is surprising, as I love spicy food!). I had 8 chicken breasts, which is double what is called for, and I wanted to take other reviewers' advice and make double the sauce, so I ended up quadrupling the sauce recipe. The only thing I should not have quadrupled was the red pepper flakes. Next time I make this, I'll halve the amount of red pepper flakes. All other modifications I made ended up turning out very well: using olive oil instead of vegetable oil, orange juice in lieu of frozen OJ concentrate, halving the margarine amount, and using 3 cloves of garlic instead of just 1. The flavor of this recipe is great, and I'll definitely be making it again!
