    It was good but not outstanding. Tasted like exactly what was in it. Flavors didn't meld together.

    Great taste and kept the chicken so moist. I used agave nectar in place of the honey to keep my blood sugar from spiking, and it worked well.

    I love this recipe. We have eaten it directly from the grill; cold a day later as sandwiches, over a salad, etc. The flavor is great.
