Quick chicken winner for honey-mustard lovers

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted (I used 2 T butter and 2 T water)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Dijon-style prepared mustard
  • 4 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (I used 2 but kept sauce amount the same- you want enough to pour over rice, so double sauce if you use 4)
  1. In a medium bowl combine the melted butter/margarine, honey, mustard, curry powder and cayenne powder. Mix well. Place chicken breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish and pour honey/mustard mixture over chicken. Cover and place in refrigerator. Marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Remove dish from refrigerator and bake, covered, in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove cover and bake about 10 minutes more, or until done and juices run clear (baking time will depend a little on how thick your chicken breasts are).
This is a delicious, easy, fast chicken recipe! I was a lot worried about the combination of ingredients, but it turned out splendidly. Read the reviews on this recipe at it got about 300 4 1/2 star reviews (out of 5 stars), and people who didn't like curry loved this recipe. I'd go more for if you like honey-mustard you'll like this. The kids liked it, as it was more sweet (but not overly so) than spicy.

I'm with you on this recipe - it is basically the same one I serve my family all the time. When I don't know what else to make I grab the honey and mustard and everyone's happy. I don't usually bother with the curry, but I'll try it next time around. If you want some French inspired chicken recipes, I have a few here:quick easy chicken recipes. Cheers!
