This dish is excellent served with Basmati rice since there will be a little extra sauce to spoon over the chicken and to flavor the rice nicely. This recipe is courtesy of the "Spice of Life Cookbook" by Treva Davis (no longer in print).

Really good. The lemon curry sauce is a nice change of pace from regular curry sauces. The honey was the perfect finish- it completely cuts away the bitter flavor that had me worried when I first taste-tested it.

I doubled the recipe and used chicken thighs. Not having an chili paste, I used chili powder. I loved it! It was so very easy and forgiving. This recipe definitely has to be served with some kind of palate cleanser though. Either that or have ice cream for desert. :)
