Looks delicious! Substituting pork for chicken would provide a touch of variation.

Whoo WHEEE! This chicken is so good that you will not stop wanting to eat it, just like our family discovered, lol. I am not crazy about honey so used half the quantity and made up the rest with brown sugar. We also used fresh garlic but made no other changes. We had it for a family dinner but I think it will also be great as drinks party snack. Try it, it is GREAT!

Just the title of this sweet and savory chicken made me think it was going to be chicken recipe with a lot of gooey sauce. I was presently surprised at how this is prepared. If the flavor is good, this will be one of those recipes I keep in the rotation.

The concept of this sounds really good but I'm a little confused. Is the sauce a dipping sauce or are you supposed to toss the chicken in it after it finishes baking like the directions state...because the video doesn't show it done that way. Maybe marinating the chicken in the sauce and then breading it would not only keep it from getting dry but also combine all the flavors together while it's baking, and then if you need to you can have extra sauce for dipping.

Our home consumes chicken at least three times a week in some form or fashion. It is always nice to get a new recipe so that that stand-by meat can be prepared in new and exciting ways. The sweet and savory part comes in with the sauce and I suspose that is optional as well. Recipe sounds easy enough and tasty.

Sweet and Savory is a nice combination and I think those flavors marry very well with chicken. I love the sound of this recipe and it is so easy to prepare. I'm glad the chicken is baked and not fried. I'm going to try that. Adding in some Parmesan cheese to the bread crumb mixture may be a good idea.
