The cooked chicken is then glazed with a mixture of honey, butter, and spices to add sweetness and flavor. This dish is often served as a main course and can be paired with various sides such as coleslaw, mashed potatoes, or macaroni and cheese.

Glazes can be made using a variety of ingredients, but they are typically made using a mixture of sugar, butter, and spices.

Some popular variations of glaze include honey glaze, spicy glaze, and sweet and tangy glaze.
