      This was superb, lazyme. The end result was a moist chicken with a phenomenal taste. Serving it with the honey butter is a real must for the full flavor effect. Like another reviewer already pointed it, it's not as sweet as one would expect. Instead, you get a very nice balance of honey and cinnamon that produces a wonderfully tasting dish. Made for ZWT #9 (North Africa). Yum!

      This turned out so juicy, and not really as sweet as you'd think with the amount of honey in it. The flavor of the honey comes through, but not so much of the sugar. It's very, very nice. I made a couple of tiny adjustments. We like to roast our chickens cut up, and I tossed some carrots and pickled lemons in the pan with it. The carrots were great with the braising liquid. Thanks for the great recipe.

      Very moist, sweet and tasty chicken! It was loved by kids and adults alike. Simple recipe but the sweet basting makes this chicken stand out! Made by a fellow Unruly/ZWT6
