This Honey Baked Chicken recipe is perfect for dinner parties or an average dinner. Easy and delicious and everyone will love it!
This is by far my absolute favorite way to eat chicken. This chicken is super moist, and super tasty, the skin is gorgeously browned, and the sauce is amazing. It’s easy to prepare, too, and it looks as fantastic as it tastes. This baked chicken dish is great whether you have company coming over for a dinner party or you are just cooking for family.
Don’t be scared of the mustard and curry powder combination in the sauce. You don’t really taste either addition, but they combine with the honey and melted butter beautifully to create a luxurious sauce for the chicken. Can a baked chicken recipe be luxurious? I’m going with it. Be brave enough to try this chicken and you will become fast friends forever!
If you need a great veggie side dish that you can cook in the oven along with this chicken, I highly recommend my Garlic Roasted Zucchini! Its as simple as dumping stuff in a pan and letting it cook! You will need to let it cook a few minutes extra if you have both the chicken and the zucchini in the oven together, but it will still turn out to be one fabulous meal!
