Chicken Breasts in Curry-Honey-Mustard Sauce

Total Time
4hrs 30mins
Prep 4 hrs
Cook 30 mins

Wanted to make a "honey-dinner" on Rosh Hashana and this was the main course.


  1. Melt the margarine in an ovenproof pan.
  2. Add honey, mustard, curry powder, cayenne pepper and cumin; mix well.
  3. Add the chicken breasts and make sure they are covered by the sauce.
  4. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours or more.
  5. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  6. Remove from refrigerator and bake covered for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Remove cover and bake 10-15 minutes more until done and juices run clear.
  8. Baking time will depend on the thickness of the chicken breasts.

I cut this recipe down to serve 2 and ity worked out fine. Of course realizing I had bone in boobs at the last minute was kind of a bummer. I just adjusted the cook time a tad everything was perfect. The meat was juicy. We like the zip the curry and cayenne gave the chicken. I will make this one again.

I thought this was fantastic!! I made it just the way the recipe says....except, I may have doubled up on the cayenne, because it had a bit of a kick to it!! Great chicken & ridiculously easy to make...Thanks for sharing!!

This is really good. I was in a time crunch so I cooked the breasts salt and peppered in a skillet for about 10 min in olive oil and butter. Made the sauce in a seperate pan and used about 3 tablespoons of butter and used honey mustard (mustard). Then I put the chicken with sauce over it in a pan for 10 minutes at 425 covered. For you sauce lovers like me I would try cooking the sauce(not the marinade) seperatly to have extra for rice. Sauce was ready in about 5 min. just melt butter add spices and mix well.
