    Tweeked the recipe a bit, but turned out great! Used Worcestershire sauce instead of soy sauce. Also added just a bit more honey then it called for. Will definitely make this again!

    I didn't have Honey so I tried making a sugar/water substitute but I didn't get the right consistency. It tasted very good albeit the sauce was too runny and there was too much of it.

    Disappointing. The sauce was very watery. I had to double check the quantities specified in the recipe to be sure I hadn’t made an error. Taste was OK. I won’t make this one again. Easy doesn’t always = good.

    It was kind bland. But as my first time making chicken it was pretty easy.

    This was super easy to make, but i thought it was lacking in flavor. I paired it with white rice and Asian medley veggies for a stir fry type dinner. I followed the directions exactly, but had to cook about 20-30minutes longer than the recipe called for. Due to the extra time I coated the chicken with the juice a few dozen times and even flipped them over to try and even out the cooking. While I was worried the extra time would dry out the chicken it was still perfectly plump and juicy. A few things could have made a difference in my opinion; I could have used thinner chicken breasts to reduce the cooking time needed add more honey possibly cut the soy in half marinade the chicken prior to cooking reduce the juice after cooking to make a good thick sauce, or just prep some extra and reduce. I will try this again with these changes and update, not sure when though.

    Delicious! I did season the chicken with lemon seasoning and pepper prior to baking. Great flavor!

    Fast! Simply made.... It was very tasty. The recipe allows for one to be creative and tweak to personalize the taste for those that know their way around the kitchen. Me and the wife loved it... Will recommend to other family members...

    It turned out really well. I used one pound of flattened chicken, and added a bit of Parmesan cheese on top, and it turned out really well.

    I have never cooked chicken by myself before (college student here) and this recipe was super easy to follow; chicken tasted pretty good! Probably will taste better when I become more experienced, but I give the recipe five stars because of how easy it was for an amateur like me

    The chicken was tender and so yummy.

    Very uninspiring recipe; insipid flavour; perhaps marinating the chicken would have given some life to this dish!

    great will cook again

    It was a simple recipe and easy to make. Not very memorable flavor. Perhaps marinading for a bit prior to cooking

    it was absolutely delicious, i added more honey and some splenda to make mine extra sweet. loved it! i had mine with fried brussel sprouts.

    This was really good. I made it with rice and edamame (broccoli for my husband) and my daughter ate it up. Nice and sweet, but not too sweet. My husband took the remaining liquid from the pan and reduced it down to make a sauce which added much more flavor!
