Directions:
Coat chicken with flour, salt and pepper mixture. Melt 4 tbsp. butter and roll chicken pieces in melted butter, one at a time, to coat all over. Place chicken side down, in a single layer, in baking dish. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, melt remaining butter in honey, lemon juice and soy sauce. Turn chicken, pour honey mixture over it. Continue baking, basting several times with the syrup and drippings in the pan for an additional 30 minutes or until chicken is tender and richly glazed.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
In 1968, when we were living in St. Louis, I sent some recipes, including this one for chicken, to the St. Louis Post Dispatch and won a "Filet Mignon" dinner for two at a local restaurant. What a treat for Jack and me. I made this recipe for many years and more recently Kristine Bates began to cook it with sweet potatoes. Several years ago when the PBS station in Philadelphia wanted to hear from viewers about old family recipes, I sent the newspaper clipping announcing my winning recipe. The next thing I knew I was on TV with Jim Coleman, a local chef. He used wings. It was great fun.
