Honey Chicken

3 lbs. chicken breasts, cut up
1 c. honey
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. lemon juice
1 tsp. salt

Place chicken in roasting pan. In saucepan, mix honey and butter. Heat til bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice and salt. Baste chicken and bake in 325~ F oven 1 - 2 hours, checking frequently after 1 hour. Baste with sauce about every half hour. Can be served over rice or eaten alone.
**This chicken goes from good to burnt VERY quickly! Be sure to watch carefully after the first hour--if the honey caramelizes, the chicken won't taste as good, and if it burns, it's ruined.

This recipe can also be made in a crockpot - I cooked it on high for 3 hours or so, but I'm sure you could do it all day on low if you wanted to.
