Top Review by Charlotte J

This was an easy recipe to prepare. For my pinch I used 1/4 teaspoon each of chili powder and cumin. After baking there was only a hint of honey. I used chicken breast and they came out of the oven a little pale. I wonder if I could take the reserved marinade and brush the chicken with it the last 10 minutes of cooking to get a darker top on the chicken. Made for *Zaar Cookbook Tag 2009* game
