I'm not much for measuring things out but I made this last night by eyeballing everything when I needed something quick and easy and it turned out great! My modifications: 1) I whisked all the ingredients plus salt pepper and basil together in the glass pot that I was going to bake the chicken in thus I had one less dish to clean. 2) I used an entire lemon because I love on obscene amount of lemon. 3) I used less honey. 4) Instead of basting which is too much work for a quick and dirty dinner night I just stabbed the budgeezus out of the chicken with a fork and covered the pot to keep the juices in. This way it only took 30 minutes to cook. It turned out lovely and lemony and it required very little work! A
I marinated the chicken breasts with the mixture rather than using it to pour over using a little more olive oil than called for because I grilled them over charcoal rather than baking them. This locked in the moisture as well as the taste of the marinade. Sometimes skinless breasts can be relatively tasteless or overpowered by the marinade but this ended up being a nice balance of the flavor of the moist and tender chicken and the flavors of the marinade (although Mrs. Spunky Buddy thought it was too lemony-tangy).
I love this recipe. The flavor is great and it's SOOO easy! I modify it slightly I use chicken tenders (they cook up quicker) and I cook it stove top rather than baking it. I also double the sauce and serve it with rice which I also spoon the extra sauce over! Thanks for a great chicken recipe!
Sorry but we didn't care for this. It was easy and I liked all the ingredients that went into it but once cooked it didn't have much flavor. Also 45 mins is way too long for chicken breasts. Thirty minutes is usually perfect. The chicken would be much better if it was marinated in the sauce for several hours and then grilled instead of baked in the oven. The baked chicken didn't have much color to it and therefore didn't look that appetizing. Another change I would highly recommend is doubling the liquid. It could also benefit from salt and pepper.
Made this as written and it was definitely tasty but the honey didn't add much sweetness and I found the sauce to be rather sour (even though I love sour lemony things). The honey will burn if you don't have the chicken packed tight in the baking dish so I don't recommend making a single serving like I did. A bit of salt and pepper garlic powder and a touch more honey could turn this into a fabulous dish. Will make again!
Oh my goodness!! This was delicious. I didn't bake it. I used the ingredients as a marinade and marinated the chicken pieces for about 8 hours. I also added a small amount of black pepper and a dash of salt. I heated a skillet and browned the chicken on both sides adding a little marinade as it would become dryer. I did not need to add additional oil or butter to the pan. They honey gave it a nice caramelized glaze. My husband loved it. I am making this again tomorrow night!
