Mom's Orange Curry Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by quantumgirl

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.
