    We will be having this again.

    So tasty! The juice was easily used with the rice/cauliflower rice. I wouldn't change anything.

    So very tasty. I didn't have any honey so used golden syrup a bit less than the recipe stated and oh my goodness this would have to be the best chicken dish I have cooked in a long time. I also did't have onion so used onion flakes instead.I don't know why I waited so long to try this dish. It will be a favourite and also a dinner pasrty dish to serve. Yum!!

    Delish and super easy, definitely reduced the water and would reduce even more next time.

    hello ,
    I really like this recipe but my chicken was too "wet". Next time I will add half of the recommended water.
    Thank you.
