butter or margarine
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
I made this a little differently, but my husband and I loved the taste and it was ridiculously easy! I used olive oil and salt instead of butter and I actually just cooked the chicken breasts right in the non-stick skillet with everything else. I made sure to keep basting as I was cooking. The chicken itself lacked something...probably just helps to marinate it in something beforehand, but the sauce is SO good! It tastes comparable to something you find at a Chinese buffet. I think next time I'll cut the chicken breasts into chunk-size pieces in order to get the sauce all over it. I think it would also be delicious with chopped or whole peanuts if you like them. Definitely will make again!
Do not attempt to make on an indoor grill. I tried to grill this recipe on my George Forman grill and it turned out awful! Perhaps it is because you can not control the temperature on the basic George Forman grill but it made the marinade to turn black and start smoking instantly. It was the most vile smelling and tasting chicken ever.
My husband and I thought this was OK, but felt it needed something. It had a nice subtle sweetness, but it was sorta bland. Maybe needs one or more of these ingredients: salt, pepper, season salt, hot sauce or other spices. My kids liked it though. If I make this again, I'm going to add some ingredients and maybe make kabobs instead of using the half of breast. I think using smaller pieces would really bring out the flavor of the sauce. This recipe has potential!
Update July 29, 2005. OK, I tried this with kabobs, I cut boneless skinless chicken breasts into bigger than bitesize chunks, put them on skewers with red onion, red and green pepper. I bought a 3 pound package of boneless skinless chicken from Costco. I have a family of 4, I did have some leftovers, but not much! I tripled the recipe, but I used two tablespoons of lemon pepper for the whole sauce recipe and omitted the lemon juice, added salt and cayenne pepper to taste. I kept the cayenne mild for the kids. Cooked it on the grill and basted with the sauce. Soooo good! Thank you for the inspiration! I would have never came up with this without this recipe posting!
Great recipe! I really liked the flavor. I used two cloves of garlic and a bit of extra honey. Took no time at all to put together. Thanks!
My husband thought the flavour was a little bland but I didn't. I used a good quality non-stick frying pan on medium and the chicken came out really moist. I will make this recipe again as it was so easy and works perfectly with a fresh salad.
I made this recipe and it turned out very good however there wasn't enough honey flavor in mine. If your not afraid of a lot of sugar you may want to add a little more honey. Following this recipe exactly will create a very light sauce and It was barely enough for my two chicken breasts even though it recommends using four.
I wasn't sure about the flavor when I tasted it before brushing it on the chicken but once grilled the flavors married quite nicely. It was wonderfully light tasting. I do think I may marinate the chicken in this sauce ahead of time just to give it a little more flavor but it is quite good as a glaze. I will make again.
This was insanely bland. It really added little flavor to the chicken. Have to say I'm surprised by the high rating.
