Honey Curry Chicken

17 Jan

On cold, bland days like today I crave something warm and somewhat spicy. A curry dish comes to mind. Tonight it’s Honey Curry Chicken.

The recipe is super easy and everyone in the family cleans their plate. What you get is a spicy-sweet chicken with the warm flavors of curry, onion and peppers. And all those peppers and onions give me a chance to use  my new favorite kitchen tool: the Vidalia Chop Wizard (not a paid endorsement). Seriously, the whole family loves chopping fruits and veggies with this tool. And that makes me one happy mother!

Honey Curry Chicken

  • Chicken breast (3 large or 8 tenderloins)
  • 1/2 C chicken broth
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 1 C chopped sweet bell pepper
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1/4 C prepared mustard
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional, but a nice addition)

Combine all ingredients except chicken and mix well. Pour mixture over chicken in either a crock pot or large casserole dish and toss or stir to completely coat chicken. Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour or until chicken is well done and falling apart–OR cook in crock pot on low for eight hours or high for four (preferred method). Serve over rice or quinoa (this recipe tastes great with quinoa so give it a try!), and with a healthy side of green veggies. Enjoy!
