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. Read 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!!! Read More

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! Read More

We really enjoyed these. Very easy to make. The cinnamon adds that touch of difference. You don't even need any sauce to dip them in. Read More

I have great difficulty in following a recipe for many reasons. The main one being family allergies. I substitued rice milk omited the egg and didn't mesure a thing. Myself and my oldest son really liked it. The 2-year old who is allergic to nothing wouldn't try it and the 5-year old it was altered for didn't like it but that is our normal. I'm glad I tried it and would recommend it for something slightly different from the usual. Read More

Not great. The chicken stuck to the pan and we could barely taste the cinnamon. Very dry. Very dissapointed. Will NOT make again. Read More
