    quantumgirl's Note:

    I can remember deciding this was my favorite chicken when we lived in Florida -- when I was three or four! It's still my favorite. The curry gives the chicken a wonderful color and adds an exotic flavor to the sweet orange-honey-mustard sauce. I always serve with white rice. 6 WW pts per serving; rice is 3 pts for 3/4 cup.

      Wonderful combination of flavors for chicken. I did use the curry sparingly as my husband is not a big fan of it but just likes a hint of the curry. This is easy to prepare. I served it over rice. Wonderful meal. The next time I make this, I will double the sauce as it was so good. Thank you so much, Quantumgirl.

      5 Stars, very tasty change of pace, although this is on the sweet side. It was very easy to put together, so I shall make this from time to time, then maybe I will figure out what orange cartwheels are supposed to look like. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.

      Until I made a few changes, this recipe was way too sweet for my family's taste. I added more salt, 2-3 tsps. Balsamic vinegar, 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp. red curry powder, and the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Once I had the flavorings corrected, I thickened the sauce with a tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in a bit of water. I poured it over the chicken, and my family loved it. This one's a keeper!
