Honey Baked Chicken

This was a super simple and very tasty dinner, it is a MyPlate Recipe on AllRecipes.com which was another one of our challenges this month as an All Recipes Brand Ambassador - to find and fix recipes from the MyPlate collection. This was a GREAT assignment to have, as there are SO many options! You can browse through by food group, category, see popular recipes, and find so many fresh, tasty meal, side dish, or dessert options there!
 
I love most anything that has a combination of honey and chicken, and this looked like a nice simple dish for Kent to try out on a work night for dinner. He did a terrific job whipping this one up, and loved how easy it was to make. We all really enjoyed the flavor of this dish and would definitely use it again! The curry powder gives it just a LITTLE zing, and the honey and mustard combine nicely for a delicious sauce to bake the chicken in.
 
The sauce is very thin after baking - you can choose to thicken it on the stove with a little flour or cornstarch whisked in, then bring to a boil and allow to simmer and thicken, to serve with the chicken - or just drizzle a little of the sauce straight from the baking dish on top for some "juices" to dip the chicken in while eating.
 
We served this with some homemade mac 'n cheese and steamed veggies for a delicious and filling dinner!



Honey Baked Chicken by Brucejoy on AllRecipes.com
 
Ingredients 
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon curry powder 
 
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place chicken breasts into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Whisk butter, honey, mustard, salt, and curry powder together in a bowl until smooth; pour sauce evenly over chicken.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until sauce is bubbling and chicken is no longer pink inside, 30 to 45 minutes (if you have thicker chicken breasts, pound them or cut them in half - or plan on a longer cooking time). An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast should read at least 160 degrees F.
