I happen to be one of those people who right away when I get my chicken I find something to dip it in. Always straight honey if the option is there but usually I go with Honey Mustard. However, when I came across a recipe that mixed both the honey and the chicken.. well you know I had to try it. Turns out it is so amazing that now I feel I have to share it with the world for everyone to try.
