Chicken breasts bathed in a tangy, citrus honey marinade, then baked. This is a great marinade for chicken breasts. For a more low-fat recipe, try reducing the amount of oil. As far as I can tell, it's just used to 'glue' the marinade to the chicken.

Very good! Lightly sweet with good flavor. Poured a little of the marinade over the chicken while it was baking and ended up with a little bit of yummy sauce. Next time may simmer marinade to reduce and served with chicken. Breasts were on the larger side so took about an hour to cook. Easy and very tasty. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly except for that I used 8 chicken tenders and added 3 cloves of garlic to the marinade. Before baking I poured the leftover marinade onto the chicken. It came out soft tender and my husband loved it. I will definitely cook this again. Read More

I like this recipe. I made this dish for a holiday potluck luncheon. Everyone loved the sweetness and it was moist. I add little water to avoid the chicken sticking to the pan and drizzle little more honey on the chicken in the midst of baking time. Read More

I made this on the grill since it is summer time and it turned out pretty good. The chicken was very moist and the flavors work well together I just wish it had a more stronger flavor to it. Also I thought it would be more like a honey-glaze and was slightly disappointed that it wasn't a thick coat of glaze over the chicken. I think next time I might try what other reviews have said and make a sauce w/ the marinade (only don't use the marinade the chicken has been in- salmonella and other health concerns-make a fresh batch and reduce it) Read More

Cooking only one breast I used 1/2 cup tropi50 the juice from one small orange under 1/4 cup honey splash of olive oil lemon juice salt pepper curry and added 1 diced garlic clove. Marinated overnight. Added in fresh diced ginger paprika and sliced red bell pepper an hour before cooking. Skimmed out the red pepper and cooked the chicken and marinade in a covered wok on medium high for 20 minutes. Added 1/3 a cup of water more curry red peppers and snow peas and cooked 10 more minutes. Added a small can of crushed pineapple cooked 5 more minutes. Served with white rice. It was awesome.
