    loved this recipe! replaced the chili with sweet paprika and added a few more herbs as well as rosemary and paired it with basmati rice, the rice mixed in with the sauce tasted wonderful.

    Delicious! More than enough sauce to put over rice. Will make again!

    Great recipe if you are in a hurry but want a chicken dish that is different from the normal quick chicken dinner. The only change I made was a little less chili powder as my family does not eat spicy food. The honey sauce was thick and delicious and more than enough to cover the chicken. I did use a real lime and real garlic which I believe makes a big difference. I would and will make this again

    Its difficult to get my daughter to eat any kind of dinner we make, this she ate up so fast ( I tweaked the amount of chili powder). Will absolutely make again!

    It was really good and I wowed my boyfriend with this. I used bone in and skin on chicken thighs and I baked the seasond chicken for about 1 hour at 375 degrees till chicken was done and skin was crispy and I brushed a little olive oil on about half way through baking and again when out of the oven. Then followed the rest of ingredients for sauce with the addition of a pinch of salt and extra garlic and proceeded to cook in the skillet. Will most definitely make this again.
    This was awesome. Easy and tasty, 2 of my favorite things. Will definitely be making this regularly.

    Great flavor and super easy! I made a small batch, so I think the sauce would be better made with full recipe
