    It came out really good! I did some steamed broccoli on the side, which was tasty in the chicken sauce as well. No leftovers!
    it was very tasty. Added garlic

    Yum! The sauce was simple and it so easy. Make sure to brown the skin, just like the recipe says. I halved the recipe and it still turned out great. Next time, I will add a little garlic to the sauce to add a little more spice.

    I used skinless chicken thighs and they were very tender and juicy. I served it with white rice seasoned with chili powder, cumin, cilantro and shoe peg corn. Delicious! Very simple to make.

    This was my second Honey Lime Chicken recipe to try. It turned out good but was a little heavy on the lime. If I use this recipe again I will cut the lime and add more honey. Grandpa Bob

    It was good. Followed the recipe but added 1 tbsp minced garlic and 1 tsp onion powder an a pinch of chili flakes for a kick of heat. It came out great.

    Not sure what it seemed to be missing but wasn’t full of flavor as expected. Will make again but most likely add additional seasonings 👍🏿 Also after sear finish cooking with lid took all crispness away that I gave it. Skin became soggy...will continue to cook but without lid

    Turned out very nicely, looked and tasted great. I added some apples to the pan the final 10 minutes, added a little sweetness to sauce.

    Outstanding dish! The lime and natural chicken juices blended well together. My year old son enjoyed as well. I will make this again. I may try with drumsticks next time.

    This was great! I was worried about the lime being overpowering but it wasn’t at all. Added garlic to sauce. After chicken was cooked, I removed it and thickened sauce with a Tbsp of cornstarch. Served with cilantro rice and black beans. I also liked that it didn’t take long to cook like most chicken thighs recipes👍

    Fabulous! The only change was 2 limes and 1 meyer's lemon to equal 4 tablespoons. My picky daughter loved it. Served it with Lemongrass rice.

    How much sauce you put on makes a difference in the flavor obviously, Very tasty though.
