1 3-1/2 to 4 lb chicken cut into 8 pieces
8 TBSP butter, divided
1/4 C lemon juice
1/4 C orange-flavored liqueur
1/4 C honey
2 TBSP orange zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, salt and pepper in large plastic bag. Add chicken pieces a few at a time, to bag; shake to coat completely with flour mixture. Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in large baking pan. Roll chicken in butter to coat all sides; arrange skin side down in a single layer in pan. Bake 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in lemon juice, liqueur, honey, orange zest and soy sauce. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the mixture. Remove chicken from oven; turn pieces over. Pour remaining honey mixture over chicken. Continue baking, basting occasionally, 30 minutes or until chicken is glazed and tender. Toss reserved honey mixture with cooked carrots; serve with chicken.
Makes 4 servings - two piece of chicken per person.
