    Great flavor and so easy! I thought the glaze tasted a little like a honey barbecue. Yum! I served it with whole-wheat couscous (prepared with chicken broth, scallions, garlic, curry powder, and a tiny bit of chopped dried apricots and cranberries) and steamed broccoli. Great, satisfying meal! - 7/1/09

    It was very easy to make and the proportions were just right. I didn't have any thyme so I used Italian seasoning and it turned out great. The only thing I noticed is that as the glaze sits, it gets thicker (for those wondering why it's so runny). Delicious! - 10/19/09

    Yum! Like another suggested, I used garlic powder instead of salt. It was great and I didn't miss the sodium at all. Easy, good, fast - will make again for sure. - 10/30/09

    Although a bit too sweet for my tastes, my roommate (who has a sweet-tooth!) raved about it. The thyme was the best part of this dish IMO, and I may try cutting the honey in half next time.
    Thanks for a good recipe. - 9/20/09

    Very easy and good, but I was expecting better because of the high overall rating. I found the chicken to be unexceptional. - 3/26/09
