    Decent I think marinating the chicken would result in a much tastier dinner

    I did an AIP take on this so I switched the pepper for powdered ginger and horseradish and even used a bit of rosemary. Overall, I added much more balsamic vinegar than honey for the glaze just for my own taste preference but other than those few edits, it tasted amazing! Great dish.

    This was actually pretty good and had a really nice flavor! For texture issues, I would maybe use a little less thyme, but other than that, I thought it was a good and easy recipe. I just put it on top of my salad!

    You deafly need to salt it before you cook it but besides that it’s so good

    This was not bad but it was way too bland for my family’s taste. Perhaps could be improved with additional spice.

    It was really good. I made it with chicken thighs. I like my chicken to be crispy. I will def make again. I cooked it a little longer for the glaze to stay on the chicken.

    It wAs ok. The juices from the chicken washed way quite a bit of my sauce. I’ll try a different way of doing this

    It was easy and delicious! I coated drumsticks with a little coconut oil after salt and pepper, then drizzled the sauce over them. Brushed sauce over chicken twice while baking.

    because of the other comments I rid of the glaze running off I put a lot of glaze on the chicken. I also placed the chickens close to each other (touching) so that the glaze with a kind of pool on them instead of running off completely. it turned out really well got a nice Honey Chris player and I really enjoyed it. all the excess glaze that run off to the bottom of the pan however did boblo it looked scary but it wasn't nothing detrimental at all.

    Glaze ran off and I Used chicken breasts instead of pieces, need to turn the heat down a little next time for breasts. Family liked it though

    like many others said it didn't get that nice layer on top all the glaze just ran off. had a ton of juices in the cookie sheet so the chicken was moist just not that sweet. i think next time i might try doing this on the grill and maybe marinate the chicken in the glaze before hand

    It was okay. Looked so good in thebpocture but was way too sweet. Not to mention the sauce wouldnt stick to the chicken even after many applications.

    I ended up doubling everything. It was absolutely amazing! The honey gave it a sweet taste as well with the thyme and balsamic vinaigrette giving it a nice citrus flavor to it. I'd also recommend a squeeze of lemon to top it off.
