This has been a favorite in my family for many years -- we first had it at a small restaurant in New England and wanted to try to make it ourselves. I think we came very close! Hope you enjoy it!

OH MY GOD! This is so good. I love it. Just remember these hints: As the chicken cooks, it's gonna look like it burned, because the honey carmalizes. Also, don't let them sit around once you'ce coated them. The honey starts to run off of the chicken, so cook them right away.

Excellent! I used 8 boneless, skinless breasts cut in half length-wise. I sprayed a cookie sheet with oil and laid the pieces on there and sprinkled sesame seeds on top. Baked at 350º for 1 hr. The bottom on some appeared a little dark because of the honey carmelizing but they came out perfect. I served with more honey and honey mustard for dipping. Went over very well with the company I served it to. None was left.

I was skeptical about this when I first read it, because I thought honey burns very quickly, but I decided to try anyways because I'm a big fan of adding sweetness to chicken/meat. However, I sort of wish I would have just stayed skeptical and left it at that lol. It was such a mess to make! Coating raw chicken in honey is harder than you might think. Especially boneless skinless chicken breasts. The honey just isn't very cooperative. Then cooking it. Well...you have to be SUPER careful not to cook it even a minute too long, or it definitely WILL burn. I had 3 pieces that didn't and 2 that did. The ones that didn't burn were still just a strange texture. The flavor really is nice, but carmelized honey is chewy. Not the most pleasant texture for chicken. I think the ingredients DO taste well together, but I don't know, the frying is just probably not the route to take. I may try oven frying it sometime or baking it to see if it works out better that way..If I feel the need to go through the mess of preparing it again! :]
