    An easy and delicious way to serve chicken! Cooking chicken with the skin and bones takes a little longer but gives a more juicy and tasty result. From Egypt Cooking Today. Hope you enjoy!

      This was OMG Great! The honey-cream sauce was just the right blend of sweet yet so creamy and light. And the chicken was moist and flavorful. I will make this again and again (and again and again), and I will not change a thing, except perhaps increase the amount of honey-cream sauce so we have extra to top a side of rice, as someone had suggested. This will surely be included at the top of my Favorite Recipes Tried in 2011. Thank you for sharing your recipe, ~Leslie~.

      AMAZING! This recipe sounded good, but, it surpassed my expectations! We REALLY enjoyed it. Between all the 'yum's' and 'ummmmmmmm's', we talked about the thyme being understated, about the honey giving a just right touch, and about how dang good it was...I did use boneless breasts and fresh thyme, as it is what I had on hand. This came together fairly quickly and I will certainly make it for guests (and myself!) I will put this recipe in my "Must Make Again!' cookbook! Thanks so much for sharing, ~Leslie~. Made for ZWT.

      Cooking is like a reconnaissance mission: plan your route, execute the deal and flee for your life from dishwashing. The pots/pans this took were so worthy of the complaining. It goes straight to my Best of 2010 cookbook.
