The combination of orange, honey, and dijon mustard as the glaze sounds delicious. This recipe comes from the "Joy of Eating" cookbook.

Delicious! The honey-orange glaze was quite good, and the chicken was really moist and baked perfectly. I will definitely make this again, but I would double the glaze so I had a little extra to spoon over a side dish of white rice. It was quite good though, and we all enjoyed it. Thanks, Nancy's Pantry. Made for you week 2 win in the 2014 Football Pool.
