{Foodie Post No.10} Honey Mustard Chicken

This past week I made two fairly healthy chicken dinners and I took pictures so I could put them on the blog!
Growing up these were two of my most favorite meals.

I have a vivid memory of Honey Mustard Chicken, I don't know if my mom made it often or if this particular time just imprinted on me but, one evening, when I was probably no older than 6, I remember my mom was working on dinner and I was laying on the living room floor entertaining my baby brother with blocks (aka duplo's). At some point in my efforts I must have fallen asleep because the next thing I remember was waking up to the sun having set and finding my mom cleaning the kitchen up, everyone else having eaten. She uncovered my plate, a divided winnie the pooh plastic plate and on it was a piece of chicken, rice soaking up the honey mustard juices, and peas, not those nasty mushy canned kind, either, no, my mom fixed the frozen ones that still have life to them.

And that is it, that is my memory of eating Honey Mustard Chicken as a kid and I don't know if that's the first time I had it but I have loved it ever since. And, to this day, it is best served with rice and pea's.

melting the butter in the baking dish and adding everything else saves dishes ;)

I failed to take a picture of the finished product :(. It was thoroughly enjoyed even though I served it with brown rice and sauted zucchini.

Honey Mustard Chicken
1-3 Pounds Chicken Pieces
1/4 cup Butter
1/2 cup Honey
1/4 cup Mustard
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Curry Powder

Melt butter in 9x13 dish. Stir in remaining ingredients. Roll chicken in mixture to coat. Arrange in pan. Bake at 375 for 1 hour uncovered. Use sauce over chicken, rice, and vegetables.

I cut the recipe in half when fixing it for us.


  1. Yummy! It certainly was a childhood favorite. :) I think I have only made once in the 4 years I have been married. :0 I am really slacking. :)

  2. I made it often when you were growing up and less often the more kids I had because it takes a lot of honey for the amount to serve everyone now. 😬 And yes always peas and rice with leftover sauce over it. I think I will make it for dinner soon so the younger ones will know it too. I should have made it for your birthday dinner!
