Curry it up!


I wanted to do something simple and quick for dinner last night. And I needed to finish off the chicken that's been sitting in my freezer for a few weeks now. (I buy 1-2 chickens when they go on sale, cut them in pieces and put them in the freezer. I'm a student on a budget, so don't judge). I was looking for a recipe on allrecipes and decided to try this one out because of all the rave reviews. It turned out pretty good. I didn't care much for the curry aftertaste (I usually LOVE curry) . It may very well be because I was using the (cheap) curry powder that came with my spice rack. Mental note: Use good quality curry next time.

Honey Mustard Chicken
Adapted from allrecipes.ca
Makes 6 servings

1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon curry powder

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Combine the melted butter, honey, mustard, salt and curry powder and dip the chicken pieces in the mixture. Place chicken pieces in a shallow baking pan, skin side up. Pour the rest of the mixture on the chicken.


3. Cover baking pan with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30mins, basting every 15 minutes with pan drippings. Remove foil and bake the chicken uncovered for another 40mins or until the chicken is nicely browned and tender and the juices run clear.


I served it with jasmine steamed rice and steamed broccoli and cauliflower. Pour the sauce over the rice, it's delectable. Enjoy!
