    Delicious! I added a teaspoon of garlic, and I didn’t de-done the chicken. This was quick and easy, 100% will make again

    I added more spice and added garlic. Was great!
    Amazing, so juicy! Quick and easy, with beautiful results! A keeper for sure!

    The taste was awesome and the meat was very tender, but I had to keep it in the oven for a few extra minutes to crisp up the skin.

    I didn’t use the cayenne (as the kids don’t like spicy). It was delicious!

    Chicken came out juicy and golden brown. If you like spicy food, this had some good heat to it. I will definitely be making this one again, but i will probably coat with a basting brush next time to get an even coating on it

    Was not tasty at all even after adding extra cajun seasoning.

    It turned out great, and it’s easy. I have made it several times and it has always gotten compliments.

    Really tasty! So simple and it was great. I’ve bookmarked this to do again. I used small chicken breast fillets and cooked for about 5 mins longer as it was still a little pink. Beautifully moist.

    Turned out pretty well. Will make again. Quick and easy.

    Turned out way better than expected. Very easy to make. The sauce at first tastes too sweet but once it’s cooked it has a nice spicy kick to it. Very flavorful. Highly recommend!

    We really enjoyed this recipe. I used a half of cut up chicken, bone in -skin on. It was delectable. If I had all thighs I would have tried the suggestion of removing the bone. The chicken had a brown honey spice coating that both my husband and I enjoyed. I’ll be making this often.

    It was an delicious meal. I followed the recipe as. I will be making this more often. I have 3 picky eaters and they all enjoyed it.
