Mom's Orange Curry Chicken

Mom's Orange Curry Chicken created by KateL

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.

    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!

    This is my new favorite chicken dish. The smell was outstanding, the flavor was even better. I served this with rice and ate myself sick finishing off the sauce poured over the rice. Thank you so much for this excellent recipe.

    Excellent chicken recipe! Sweet and tangy, tastes like a zippy honey mustard with fresh oranges. We loved this. I served it with some couscous. I had no idea how good this would smell while reducing and cooking - just like my favorite L'Occitane honey perfume! Thank you quantumgirl, I will make this again soon!!!!
