Wash chicken thoroughly. Put cut up chicken in a large dutch oven (pot). Add water, soy sauce, and chopped green onions. Stir with a wooden spoon just to mix liquids together and for chicken to be immersed.
Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat and simmer on low to medium heat, with lid tilted, not completely covering pot. Simmer until chicken is tender, almost falling off the bone.
With prongs take the chicken out of the pot and place in a casserole dish large enough to single layer chicken pieces. Discard liquid left in the pot.
Spoon or pour honey over chicken until covered. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F until chicken is slightly browned; just enough time to keep the chicken moist.

This recipe sounds good! I think, however, I would save the juice (flavored broth) for another use, it would contain wonderful flavors and good nutrition.
