Honey Curry Chicken

My friend recently shared this recipe on facebook. Sean and I have a new-found addiction to Indian food, so I was excited to find a recipe that my kids would like. It's pretty mild as far as Indian food goes.

6 chicken thighs
4 chicken breasts ( I used all boneless breasts, but you have to be careful about the cooking time so that the chicken does not become dry.)
1 cup of honey
1/4 cup of dijon mustard
2 tsp of curry powder

Mix the last three ingredients to make your sauce. Put the chicken in a 9x13 and pour sauce over the top. over and bake at 375 for 45 minutes, turning the chicken over after 30 minutes.

I did make this in a crock pot on low heat, but again, you have to be very careful with the boneless chicken so it does not become dry.
For extra spice, add a TBSP from of a jar of curry paste. You can find all different varieties in the ethnic food section of your grocery store.
I served this over basmati rice with a side veggies and naan bread. MMMmmmm!


  1. Yum! I like to use turmeric with my basmati rice, and once it's done, stir in a cup of frozen peas. LOVE me some Indian food!

  2. Dave and I are both Indian food freaks. Yum!!

  3. Started with this recipe, but added ginger, garam masala, and salt. Simmered the sauce on the stove and added cubed chicken breast (was afraid of it drying out in the oven like you mentioned). Sooo yummy!
