This was SO good, my family LOVED it. I made only slight modifications. I didn't have enough honey, so I used 2Tbs, and substituted Pineapple juice for the rest. I also left out the cyenne pepper because it would make it too spicy. The only thing I recommend is to marinade for a few hours, maybe even over night, to soften all the herbs. I also added chunks of pineapple, which gave it a nice added flavor.


My husband loved this! I dipped the chicken in flour and browned them before putting them in the oven, which I think added to the appeal.


Quick and delicious! Reduced the oil to 1 tablespoon and replaced the other 5 with pineapple juice. Thanks to other reviewers' recommendations, I added pineapple pieces (wonderful addition!) and marinated the breasts for about 5 hours. Because I had so little oil in the marinade I was extra careful not to overcook the chicken and basted often. Rave reviews from family!
