This is one of my husband’s recipes, Honey Baked Chicken.  For some reason we’d been married a good 3 years before I knew it existed.  So sad because it is DELICIOUS!  It’s also pretty fast and easy.

Don’t be worried about the curry in it either, everything blends together and it’s so flavorful. We like to cook up some peas, corn, and any other veggie hanging out around the kitchen and eat this like a big rice bowl. Leftovers are great made into casseroles or especially in soup! W just add broth, veggies and then potatoes or rice!

  1. This was amazing. Even my picky 6 yr old liked it and that says a lot!
    How could I convert this to the instant pot?

  2. I was a little hesitant to try this recipe because I am rather afraid of curry. Everything else looked good and your description persuaded me. It was good, but I have to say that the leftovers were excellent. The spices mellowed and really infused the chicken. Next time I make this, I will do it a day or two ahead and then re-heat to serve.

  3. This was delicious! I used the chicken seasoning you recommended. Super comfort food. I served with brown rice. Thank you!

  4. I may just try this tomorrow! I’m thinking I may serve it with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli – I’ve been craving BOTH of those side dishes!

  5. This was so good! I did it a little differently though. I shredded the chicken then mixed it with the sauce mixture and baked it for 20 minutes. Still really good!! 5 stars from me!

  6. Could this be made in a crockpot?

  7. My wife forgot to mention that I no longer bake it like the recipe says. I prefer to cook chicken and shred it. Then let it simmer in a pot on the stove with the sauce to let it soak the deliciousness.

    (Hi wife, I'm actually looking at your blog. Can you believe it?)

  8. i am making this tomorrow. i totally am.

  9. Nope. No onions. I think the light just hit is funny. Sometimes, to be even speedier, I will put chicken in the crock pot all day & then whip up the sauce when I get home. Don't cook it in the sauce all day though. It doesn't come out right.

  10. This looks fabulous and easy to make. Your photo looks like it has onions in it. Does it?

  11. oh man. That sounds so good. Its going on my menu next week!
