Directions

Melt butter then add the rest of the ingredients except chicken. Remove skin and excess fat from chicken. Roll chicken in sauce and put in greased baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over chicken. Bake uncovered @ 375 for an hour. (I like to baste every 15 mins or so.) This is great with rice and broccoli. Makes 6 servings. I just make 6 for my family but this is plenty or sauce to make more thighs.

Number of Servings: 6

    I melted the butter/margarin in a glass baking dish in microwave. Added other ingredients and baked in same dish, added partial bag of frozen veggies the last 15 minutes. I also put some some potatoes in to bake at the same time, used some of the sauce over the pototoes. - 10/9/09

    I've made this one a few times now, and it is fabulous. One idea to improve is to add fresh green beans or asparagus to the pan during the last 15-20 minutes of the cooking time. Thank you for sharing this one. It is on the regular rotation at my house. - 6/30/09

    This was wonderful, and so easy! I let the chicken sit in the marinade for a couple of hours before baking. I also added cayenne pepper, garlic and ginger. I added fresh broccoli to the pan for the last 20 minutes. - 7/31/10

    Looks delicious, but the calories are calculated using 1 Tbsp. of butter, not 4. So if you make it the way this is printed, it's higher in calories than shown. - 8/6/12

    Not a huge curry fan...but I absolutely loved this dish!! I must admit that I wasn't fond of the smell of the marinade at first, but as it was baking it started smelling better and better and the end result was fabulous!!! - 6/5/09

    Everyone liked it a lot. I used some of the suggestions and added 1 tsp ginger, some cayenne, and garlic powder. I marinated it in the sauce while at church, about 3-4 hours. I also cut up some celery, carrots, and potato and added to the baking dish to bake along with the chicken. Great! - 9/23/12

    Very good...I used about 8 skinless thigh fillets and the cooking time was cut in half. My boyfriend loved it. I only have to say it was a bit too sweet for my taste. I think next time I would use less honey and add some root vegetables or something to the sauce. Also add some cayenne pepper. - 6/14/10

    This was very tasty however, I had to make some modifications. I used chicken wings instead of thighs and added spicy mustard as well as regular mustard and I accidently used cumin instead of curry and didn't realize it till it was in the oven. Opps, but very, very tasty. - 1/27/09

  • I was looking for something out of the routine for baked chicken, and this was great! I actually used ground cumin, only 1 tbspn of butter, no salt, 1/4 c of honey, and added cayenne pepper, garlic powder, oregano and ground ginger. Tasted great with a little kick! Will definitely make again. - 6/5/14

  • Delicious! I made a half recipe for the 2 of us. The only change I made was to increase the curry powder (used 1.5 tsp in the half recipe). I will be making this again (and again, and again)! - 3/8/14

  • I used half the butter and didn't have curry so used cumin. I also added some cayenne since my family likes a little heat. Next time I would let it marinate in the honey-mustard-curry sauce a little before baking. The sauce was yummy! p.s. I made rice and broccoli as suggested....great meal! - 10/23/13

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I used chicken breast cut up into serving pieces and olive oil. I added new red potatoes cut in half - bite size and added half a pound fresh green beans cut up in thirds. I mixed it up in the sauce as written and baked it for 45 minutes. It was so yummy. - 9/5/13

  • I followed some of the other suggestions: I used 1 tbsp olive oil vs butter, added garlic, and a dash of red cayenne pepper. I also threw in some carrots and chunks of celery. Definitely baste!

    My husband declared "it's a keeper." No one noticed that the thighs were skinless. - 6/14/13

I boiled some rice to go with it and spooned a little of the sauce onto the rice. I will definitely be making this again! - 1/11/13

  • I thought this was good. I used 2T butter, chicken breast and added 1/2 tsp ginger. I always season my chicken with season salt, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. I also marinated it for a few hours before cooking it in the oven. I only had to cook 30 minutes because I used breast. - 1/6/13

  • The sauce tastes wonderful, just a little bland for me. I doubled extra mustard w/ horseradish, tripled curry, added red pepper, and crushed garlic cloves. I am also experimenting with slow cooking in crockpot. The sauce is so good how could it not be perfect! - 3/13/12

  • I went to make this and realized I was out of Honey so I used maple syrup it turned out pretty good. I also used half butter and half olive oil. The flavour was good but the sauce separated with all the oil on top. Over all good and I will make it again. - 2/26/12

  • I tried this last night. I used chicken legs instead. It was an easy sauce to make. I would only recommend baking the chicken first and then adding the sauce towards the end. The sauce made the skin of the chicken a little soggy for me. I would definitely use it on other meats. - 1/7/10
