This originally came from a Taste of Home in '94. I've adapted it to my family's style and have made it a quicker and easier meal

This is an amazingly fantastic recipe! I made a couple changes. I substituted (all equal substitutions) chili powder for the cayenne pepper, maple syrup for the honey, left out the soy sauce as I had none, and cumin for the curry powder, then baked as directed, and served it over pasta. It came out so moist and delicious! The brown sugar really gives it a great texture and taste.
