This chicken turns out so good and it's pretty simple. I've made it for Easter Dinner several years.

Great Recipe! We didn't have a whole chicken, so we used some cut up chicken pieces we had (thigh is pictured). very easy glaze, but delicious! We look forward to trying this with a whole chicken next time we have one. Made for PAC 2010
