I'm in the middle of fixing one of my all-time favorite meals for dinner tonight. I've been distracted, though, by the urge to post the recipe to share with y'all because I'm so looking forward to sitting down at the table tonight. I want everyone else to get to enjoy a tasty treat of a meal too! It's great because, in a pinch - and as long as I have chicken - I usually have all the ingredients on hand. It's a great go-to.

So, since I haven't posted a recipe in a while, here is one of the best:

Sweet Curry Chicken

1+ lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast
2/3 C butter, melted
2/3 C honey (use local honey!)
4T mustard
2t salt
2t sweet curry powder
(This is the KEY ingredient to it's deliciousness! I use Penzey's Sweet Curry Powder, but you can also find this in your local grocery store.)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut chicken into 1" cubes. (I like to hold it in the air with tongs and snip it up with scissors. I think it's faster and it keeps me from having to touch the chicken.)
  3. Combine melted butter, honey, mustard, salt and curry powder in a separate bowl.
  4. Add mixture to chicken cubes and stir to coat.
  5. Bake 45 minutes or so until the chicken looks good and done.
  6. Meanwhile, steam a few cups of rice in a steamer.
  7. Serve chicken over rice and enjoy.
(Note: Yes, I know, there are no vegetables in this meal. I have added zucchini before and been very pleased. I've also sometimes added broccoli. Coconut milk also adds a nice layer of flavor if you cook it with the chicken. Play with it! It's comfort food at it's best. And, the leftovers actually rival the original meal!)

(Another Note: For kids, just stick some of the cooked chicken and sauce into a food processor with some cooked rice. Blended roughly it's a winner even with Oliver.)

Bon Appetite!

And now, back to preparing dinner for my own family...

That sounds fabulous!! I have a chicken curry recipe, but it's not as low-fat sounding...mine has cream of chicken soup, mayo and potato chips crushed on top!!! :) I'm going to definitely have to try yours! Thanks for the recipe!!!
