    Mirj's Note:

    This is delicious and fragrant! Your house smells wonderful while the chicken is roasting and the neighbors knock on your door looking for invitations to dinner. I make this at least once a month.

      My whole family like this (which is extremely unusual - they are very picky eaters)! I served it over rice. The only thing I would change, is to make it saucier, to go over pasta or rice. Yum!

      Very good and moist. I made a romantic dinner for my husband and served slices over parmesan angle hair pasta. I started with a small bowl of Dick Clark's Mushroom Soup, a warm greens salad with fresh tomato with Italian dressing and a Cabernet.

      This was very good. The citrus & honey mixture was very flavorful and made the chicken very tasty. I served this as part of our Easter meal and it was enjoyed by all. Note: I used a smaller chicken and was surprised that I needed even more cooking time - next time I might cook it at a slightly higher temp.
