Honey Curry Chicken

Who doesn't like chicken and rice? It is so versatile with endless possibilities for flavor combinations. Curry and coconut go great together. They are a perfect match. The sweetness and creaminess of the coconut rice balances out the slight spiciness of the curry. This is a very easy recipe, quick to pull together and uses ingredients that are most likely already in your pantry or fridge. I have chosen to use boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but it would also be great with legs or thighs or even a whole chicken. I got this recipe from my mom She just uses the sauce as a marinade and cooks her chicken on an outdoor grill. Baked or grilled, this is a keeper!

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup honey
2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
1 tsp. salt
1-2 tsp. curry powder
1-2 lbs. chicken (which ever cut you choose-I usually cut my chicken breasts into tenders so more of the chicken gets flavored)

Melt butter and mix with the rest of the ingredients. Place chicken in a large baking dish and pour sauce over chicken. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 30-45 minutes or until done, basting about every 10 minutes.

To grill, thread chicken tenders onto skewers and grill on medium heat until done, turning half way through.


  1. Love this recipe! Especially great on the grill!

  2. This is my kind of recipe (I'm making it right now!)...just a few ingredients & simple instructions. I opted to bake mine (covered with foil to keep in moisture)...wondering what you'd recommend in order to make the sauce into a thicker one after the chicken's done to put on plain rice...btw CONGRATS on moving in! Give yourself several years to unpack everything. :) Love you guys! ~ Laura B

  3. Laura, to make the sauce thicker, I would just transfer it to a saucepan and add a little cornstarch and water, whisk it in adn bring to a boil and it should thicken right up. However, once we poured the sauce over the rice, it absorbed it pretty well. Good luck! Hope you like it.

  4. I LOVED this recipe!! Thanks!!

  5. I need to try this. I love curry!
