  3. Heat large skillet over medium-low heat. Place chicken in pan; drizzle with half of the honey. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Turn chicken; drizzle with remaining honey. Cover and cook 10 minutes longer, uncovering during the last 2 minutes. Chicken should no longer be pink in center. Serve with pan juices.
