Honey-Glazed Chicken

My family raves over this nicely browned chicken. The rich honey glaze gives each luscious piece a spicy tang. This dish is simple enough to prepare for a family dinner and delightful enough to serve to guests. -Ruth Andrewson, Leavenworth, Washington

    Very good! The curry and honey pair well together. Cover to prevent burning. Served with rice.

    Very good! I used four bone-in chicken breast halves, but had to remove the skin before dredging since my husband is now on the cardiac diet. Have no cayenne pepper (how could that be?) so substituted coarsely-ground black pepper. And only put 1/4 tsp. curry powder in the sauce, as he is not a great fan of curry. If I make this again I think I could bump the amount of curry powder up to 1/2 tsp. and he'd still eat it. The leftovers are going to make for some great chicken sandwiches or chicken salad.

    This is so easy and delicious. My picky 2 years old son said "yummy" several times. I used things because that's what I have and also substituted a tablespoon of lime juice instead of lemon juice. I definitely going to make this again.

    Very good. I used boneless chicken breast, and only 1/2 the recommended salt. Baked for ~40 minutes, then put on Broiler to crisper. Served over fresh spinach.

    My husband loved this and so did I. Very moist! Great over rice with a side salad :)

    This has been my husband's favorite chicken recipe for several years now! Always the way he requests chicken :) I follow the recipe exactly and it always comes out awesome. Sweet and slightly spicy with the cayenne. Great recipe that's become a staple in our home.
