Honey Baked Chicken II
I was looking for a good chicken recipe for chicken thighs. I wanted something different but flavorful. I checked on allrecipes and found this one. It did not disappoint! What's also nice about this recipe is that most of the ingredients you will already have on hand. As I'm writing this I wonder why I didn't go to my huge, buldging folder of recipes that I've clipped out or copied that I want to try. I guess old habits die hard! I need to start trying some of the recipes that have just been sitting in that folder for months (could even be years!).
This is a very good recipe with a ton of flavor. The chicken was also nice and moist. I served rice and peas with this chicken.
1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces (I used 5 chicken thighs)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon curry powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place chicken pieces in a shallow baking pan, skin side up. Combine the melted butter, honey, mustard, salt and curry powder and pour the mixture over the chicken. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/4 hours, basting every 15 minutes (I baked the chicken thighs for 1 hour), with pan drippings, until the chicken is nicely browned and tender and the juices run clear.
