Chicken with Lemon Curry Sauce

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).

Absolutely delectable. The fact that you can achieve this result without having to brown the meat, and you get only a single pan dirty, is just icing on the cake. The only change (a very minor one) that I made is that to save time, I sliced the garlic very thin rather than mince it. In this dish that works well. Is this a Indian cuisine? Malaysian?

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.
