Despite the one negative review, tried this recipe and was sooooo glad! Served hot, this chicken was moist and had a delicate, fresh flavor. Just right for a refined palate!!!! The real surprise came 3 hours later when when snacking on leftovers. Served cold the flavor of the joney and the cinnamon jumps right out and smacks you. So, I say, serve it hot for a light refreshing taste,or,serve it cold for a less sensite palate.

Tried this recipe tonight - did not have enough honey to add in, but I did add garlic to the flour mixture. Everyone in my family LOVED these nuggets. Even frying them, they still came out very, very tender and juicy. There were absolutely no leftovers and I'm craving more!

When I read this recipe, I was excited about the combination of flavors. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out just OK, though moist and different...We may do this again, mainly because my picky 2 year old liked them!! But thanks for the new recipe!!!
