Honey Butter Lemon Chicken

Honey Butter Lemon Chicken is not only delicious, it’s also a fun and easy way to get the children involved in making dinner. It may get a little messy, but when kids are able to participate in creating a meal, they’re more likely to eat every last bite. 
Did we mention that the chicken is all oven fried? No standing over the stove waiting and watching for it to be done. Easy cleanup and and easy meal!
