Honey Chicken

I don't cook as much as I used to. Part of the problem is the fact that I like my own cooking too much. The other part of the problem is - I like my own cooking too much. But, one of my nieces is interested in cooking, and I thought my blog would be a great way to share some of the family favorites. I made Honey chicken with my neighbor Celeste yesterday. The sauce is easy to put together and includes ingredients likely (for me at least) to be on hand.

4 TBSP butter
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1 tsp salt
t tsp curry powder

Combine above ingredients and Melt sauce in a saucepan

The original recipe, which I used, called for boneless breast of chicken. You preheat your over to 375, roll the chicken in the sauce and throw it in the oven for an hour until the chicken is tender and glazed. The sauce is ample enough for 10 servings. To shorten the time for this recipe, I've pounded my breasts thin and sauteed them with cooking spray or grilled them in a George Foremen, then poured the sauce on top. Sometime I will try refrigerating the sauce, stirring well, and putting a tablespoon of the sauce under the chicken's skin. I may try making stips out of the uncooked breast, rolling in the sauce, then rolling in panko bread crumbs for chicken fingers......
