Herb Chicken with Honey Butter Recipe

Look what I made last night!!!!  Herb Chicken with Honey Butter!  And yes, it mostly looked just like the picture.  It was a quick dinner too.  Here is the run down of yesterday at our house.
I picked Alex up from school at 3:30pm and headed straight across town to her Ballet Class, which was just starting yesterday!  We were at ballet until 5:30pm and then had to wiggle through traffice all the way back across town to the house.  By the time we got home, it was 5:55.  So I grabbed the chicken out of the refrigerator and got busy.  My husband helped clean up the kitchen and we had everything done by 6:50pm!  Tell me that isn't quick!  The only problem with the meal was the green beans I served with the chicken.  I didn't salt them enough.  My husband will tell you that I don't usually salt things enough.  I am scared that I will over salt things and that is far worse!  You can always add salt but you can never take it away!
