Our Thoughts:

The glaze is what makes this chicken unique.  Its so tasty that Jen dipped her potatoes and broccoli in it too.  Just enough heat, just enough sweet.  The kids liked it, even the oven-roasted veggies.  A great family meal that doesn’t require much other than the oven and the sauce.  Mix it up tonight, sit back and let it bake.  You’ll enjoy it, trust us.
