THREE DISCLAIMERS BEFORE YOU START READING:

  1.  Don’t be deterred by the yellow-ness.  Seriously.  Weird is sometimes best.
  2. All of my family members who “hate curry” love this.  It’s not curry-ish.  I promise.
  3. Make sure you save a spoon to eat the leftover sauce after everyone else has left the table.  It’s that good.

Imagine this scenario: it’s the weekend.  Or Monday.  You’re family is starving to death and you want something to throw together quickly that doesn’t make you spend an extra 2 hours cleaning up afterward.  You don’t have a whole heck of a lot of supplies in your pantry….but you DO have some chicken in your fridge…..

Well then….here’s your new favorite “I-forgot-to-go-grocery-shopping-but-apparently-we-still-need-to-eat” recipe.

6-8 chicken breasts, trimmed

2 sticks butter (yes, real butter again…) melted

1 c honey

1/2 c dijon mustard

2 teaspoons curry

1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375; put your chicken in a 9X13; mix the other ingredients; pour over chicken; turn chicken to coat evenly; bake, covered, for 45 min; uncover and bake 15 min more.

Throw on some rice during the last 15 minutes of baking and serve your chicken over that with a GENEROUS supply of sauce.  So. Good.  You will be the most colorful hero on the block.
