I don't eat chicken, but I do believe the name is "honey stung" chicken, not "honey stunk" chicken. Other than that I can only offer that many poeple have posted here about how much they enjoy that particular style of chicken.
Where is it Stunk?

We've tried it twice, the first time I thought it was no big deal, just battered, dried out pressed and formed chicken with a sweet honey flavor added to it, kind of chewy and fatty while still being dry, weird. Then I tried it again because so many people rave about it. I was right the first time.
Many times we stop and eat before boarding, it does cost a little bit, but then you don't have to settle for buffet food
I also think honey stunk chicken is more appropriate.

I have no idea how it can be "freshly cooked" as it is frozen and heated.
Freshly cooked as in just prepared.
we went to the buffet right when it opened, so the honey stung chicken was 'fresh'. it wasn't bad but it defintely did not live up to the hype.
my husband had different kinds of chicken almost every day at the buffet...the honey stung was his least favorite.
If you are expecting perfection, don't travel, you will surely be disappointed.

For some the taste is secondary, it's the tradition of the first meal on board.
Okay if it's part of the celebration then I'm starting to understand.....
