Honey Dijon Chicken

1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup Dijon or spicy brown mustard
3 teaspoons curry powder
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Dash ground cayenne pepper
4 split chicken breast halves, bone-in, skin removed or left on.
(I usually use boneless skinless. Meat on the bone freaks me out a bit. But aren't I such a nice vegetarian wife to cook all these carnivorous things? )

1. In a bowl, combine the honey, mustard, curry powder, butter, and peppers; blend well. Wash chicken breasts and pat dry. Trim away any excess fat and remove skin, if desired. Arrange the chicken breasts, skin or meaty side up, in a lightly greased baking pan. Coat the chicken with the honey mixture. Cover with foil and refrigerate for an hour or two.

2. Bake the chicken, covered, in a 375° oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil and baste the chicken. Continue baking, uncovered, for 30 minutes longer, basting every 10 to 15 minutes.

* I served it with our favorite mashed potatoes; skin on, and whipped with cream cheese and milk. It's a sin in 47 states I think.


  1. YUMMM!!! I haven't met a recipe on your blog that I haven't liked. Thanks for all the great stuffs!

  2. This looks yummy. Do you ever make food that YOU can eat?

  3. hey Becky
    the curry in your sauce must really add some great flavor to that chicken! everything goes so well together...and I think you may have broken the law in Delaware with the dinner, but in Jersey.....heeyyyyyy! No problem!

  4. Haha! No Sarah, I ususally dont. And by the time I finish making dinner for everyone else, Im too tired to make real food for myself. Being the lone Veggiesaurus in the house is the suck sometimes.

  5. Ok...this looks YUMMY! I am so trying this for lunch tomorrow!
