"This is a honey glaze with a kick. Great for BBQing and getting great color on chicken. Serve the extra sauce for dipping."

The recipe for this chicken was just plain terrible. I made the recipe according to the directions and it smelled so much like hot sauce and tasted very much like it that I even doubled my honey. Even then the chicken tasted much like hot sauce will NOT make this chicken again.


sweet & spicy! Delicious. I sliced the chicken and sauteed it with the sauce and frozen broccoli. Served it over rice.

I think the reviewer from 9/26/2003 was right, the results of this recipe will vary a lot based on the style of sauce you use. We used Frank's Red Hot sauce, and followed the recipe exactly except we broiled boneless breasts instead of grilling whole pieces. I can't stand vinegary food, and with Frank's it wasn't too vinegary at all. Unfortunately, it also wasn't very spicy at all, it would be a good idea to marinate for a little while. This isn't our favorite recipe ever, but it's sure fast and easy, and can be part of a healthy quick dinner. It went really well with carrot and celery sticks and ranch dressing.
