Very tasty I have made this with chicken wings and I havemade with cubes of chicken breast andput in skewers with cherry tomatoes and peppers. Great for picnics. Will make again and again.

I just made this tonight! They were soooo awesome! The honey and lime just make it! I read a review below saying they were to greasy. Just place chicken after frying on a paper towel- and dab th...
