Honey Mustard Glazed Chicken

Thanks to Drew Burgess for contributing not one but two recipes to the Camps Australia Wide Community Cookbook. Pictured is his photo of Pinnarendi Station (QLD site 341 in Camps 10 or find it on the CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App) – which he votes has the BEST camp kitchen!
