This honey mustard curry chicken is easy to prepare and tastes amazing!
I just love how versatile chicken is and how it can be tailored to meet the tastes of even the pickiest eaters. And if you have picky eaters, this Honey Mustard Curry Chicken is just the ticket.
This recipe is adapted from another one I have where you mix up the sauce and add it to the raw chicken in a pan. Then you bake it for an hour in the oven. But this was problematic for two reasons:
- You had to wait a whole hour.
- The juices from the chicken came out while baking and diluted the flavor of the sauce.
To fix both of these problems, I decided to stir-fry the chicken and cook up the sauce in a little pan on the stove. I then added the sauce to the chicken just before serving and the result is a tender, delicious chicken that you simply can’t resist.
If you have picky kids, adding sweetness to your recipes usually gets them to love anything you serve. That’s where the honey comes in! The honey in the sauce will have everyone asking for more!
