    I like the honey sauce over the chicken. It’s a nice contrast to the lemon.

    Turned out great but the recipe was somewhat unclear. We had top figure out the butter & honey on our own.

    Very good but the directions don’t give any indication of what to do with the honey and the second amount of butter.

    Absolutely perfect as per the recipe. Be sure to include the honey with the butter in the pan at the start.

    This turned out very good. Definitatly a do-over! I used chicken thighs and reduced the cooking time to 20 minutes. Drissled with honey before serving. YUM! I Thanks for sharing. I did not use asparagus as I did not have any so substituted with spiralled zucchini and steamed with juices of half a lemon in the same pan after removing chicken to casserole dish.

    The chicken was so tender and moist and perfect! The honey really sealed in the flavor in both the chicken and asparagus and I can't wait to make this recipe over and over!

    I forgot to use honey and instead of lemon I used lime. The chicken was fabulous, very tasty ( intristing combination of black pepper and lemon) and very tender. Yummly!

    I made this for my family last night and it was honestly some of the best chicken breast I've ever had. Usually boneless skinless chicken breast turns out really dry, but that was not the case with this recipe. I will be making this again!
