    Good recipe. However, it is great with a few change. Try marinating the chicken for an hour in the mixture beforehand. I also cooked it slower (at 325) to ensure it remained moist. Turned out beautifully.  -  02 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a wonderful recipe. IO'm definately going to make it again. The only change I would add would be to lightly grease the pan or use Pam. Because of the honey in the recipe it really stickes to the pan.  -  04 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    What a great change for baked chicken. The nuts make it special and would definitely be great to serve to guests. At first I thought it might be too sweet with the honey. It turned out buttery with only the slightest bit of sweetness. I will also try this with pork chops.  -  01 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
