Honey! Chicken

"I just love chicken...this is an easy, fast, tasty dish to prepare with few ingredients. It makes lovely moist, tender and crispy chicken breasts. This lovely simple dish is very versatile, if you'd like to add garlic, shallots, sweet onion, red pepper flakes, candied ginger or herbs by all means do so. My dh & I eat a lot of spicy dishes so every now and then we enjoy a simpler, subtler fare."

    The rating was from 5 to 3 so we have settled on a 4 but I've personally decided after deliberation is really does deserve a 5. I used skinless boneless chicken fillets at about 250 grams each and allowed 45 minutes to cook them in the mix and to be honest when added they started to cook and with so much sauce just turned the chicken breasts and allowed 45 minutes to cook them and the juices/sauce was good served over some rice and we had steamed vegetables on the side. Depending how it affects my blood sugars of I will make again I would say I prefer on the bone so would use thigh on the bone which is readily available if not cooking for the DH or otherwise buy a whole chicken and quarter it and cook as per recipe.

    We love chicken and this was a great way to cook it. I added S&P and garlic powder and only had to cook mine for 25 minutes. Made for I Recommend Zaar Tag Game 2010.

    Very easy to make. I love the blend of honey & mustard but think I would add some garlic next time. I made exactly as written but did add some sea salt & freshly ground black pepper to the finished dish. Just a personal preference. Another keeper :) Made for Aus/NZ swap May 2010

    Made this chicken for dinner this evening. I was a bit skeptical because I thought it'd just taste like mustard, but wow. This is the best chicken i've ever had. The only changes I made were that I added garlic and s/p like Sarasota suggested. I will definitely be making this again. This chicken is so good I wouldn't hesitate to serve it to dinner guests. Thanks for posting!
