  • Rub chicken pieces with garlic powder, salt and pepper. In a small bowl, beat egg yolk with honey and butter or margarine, then brush this mixture over chicken pieces. Place chicken pieces, skin side down, in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.

  • Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 45 to 60 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear, basting with remaining butter or margarine. Just before serving, turn chicken over and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes to cook the skin on the other side.

OMG! Im sitting down to a sample of this chicken (before I serve it in 30 mins)and I can't believe how delicious it is. I have a knack for making everything taste the same - not this chicken though! I was sick of lemon chicken so this was an awesime and welcome break. I added more garlic more honey and a mix of red black and white peppers salt nutmeg and dry mustard. I also added a tablespoon of dijon to the egg mix. WONDERFUL!!!! Read More

Wouldn't name this honey baked chicken. Didn't taste the honey & I added more. Kinda bland. I'll use the leftovers for something else. Read More

Loved it with a few changes! I doubled up the garlic salt pepper seasoning. A whole chicken is too much for us so I marinated the rest in the fridge for the next day. For the basting sauce I used 2 egg yolks 4x honey and 1 stick butter. This was an absolute hit with the family. I've been asked to make it every week. Thanks for sharing! Read More

A good easy recipe. I've made this recipe several times and my family enjoys it. I've settled on the following minor changes: 1.) Mix the egg with the salt garlic powder and pepper in a bowl and dip the chicken into the mixture (rather than rubbing the seasoning on the chicken and then brushing on the egg). It's much quicker. 2.) I double the sauce (except for the butter) and pour whole thing over the chicken. Baste a couple of times while baking 3.) I don't use a whole chicken (just personal preference). I use 5 chicken breasts. Thank you for the recipe! Read More

I liked this recipe alot..I even gave it away to two of my friends at work! My boyfriend nearly swallowed the chicken whole it was so good! I added just a little more honey. The thing I like about the recipe is that it is forgiving you can add take away or alter it to your liking and it will still be good. I am not an experienced cook so I like something that I can work with when I try to make dinner.Thanks for the recipe!!! Read More

I tried this recipe and it was great except that I added my extras to it such as one and a half tablespoons of brown sugar of course extra garlic and black pepper than the amount said above. It is simple and quick. The oven does the work. You only have to turn the chicken over and brush on sauce once. Just purchase a cut-up chicken from your local store so you don't have to do all that work. Very yummy indeed! Read More

I bet if this chicken wasn't so dry (my fault for not checking it at 45 minutes) it would've been 100% FABULOUS! I made some changes due to reading all the reviews. I used 1.25 lb pkg chicken breasts. Didn't measure the spices and added parsley cayenne nutmeg and Penzey's Pasta Sprinkle. I went ahead and used 2 yolks 2.5 tbs lemon juice cut the butter to 2 tbs and upped the honey to just under 1/2 cup. Marinated all day. Baked covered at 350 for an hour. Then I followed Azra's suggestion of letting the chicken sit for a few minutes and drizzling it with more honey. Trying it before I did that with all the honey I already used - yeah. FOLLOW THAT TIP! It totally makes the recipe. Read More

Very tasty and very simple. I'm just getting into cooking (fast food generation for the lose!) and this was perfect to cook and re-heat later. I substituted chicken breast for the whole chicken no problem and added more garlic. Thrilled with the result! Read More

Very good recipe. Burgers hold together better than many I've tried. I substituted packaged cornflake crumbs which also worked fine. Read More
