  • Place chicken pieces into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Melt 1/4 cup of the butter, and drizzle it over the chicken. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake chicken, uncovered, for 45 minutes in the preheated oven. While the chicken is cooking, combine the honey, molasses, mustard, curry powder and remaining butter in a medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes to blend the flavors.

  • When the 45 minutes are up on the chicken, pour the curry mixture over the pieces, and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink, and the juices run clear.

Absolutely awesome! I was really skeptical (my mother chose the recipe) and even while it was cooking I still wasn't sure I liked the smell. But after the first bite I was 100% sold! The flavor was absolutely awesome and the chicken was tender & juicy. We accidentally omitted the butter and honestly don't think we'll use the butter next time because we didn't miss it at all! Definitely will be a family favorite (even the picky 3-year-old gobbled it up!).

I liked it enough to eat what I made but not enough to make it again. My husband thought it was pretty good though.

I think instead of just using salt and pepper to season the chicken something Lawry's like seasoned salt should be used to give the meat flavor on the inside. I would definitely make it again!!!! (I don't have kids so I'm not sure how to rate that part.)

Fairly easy and tasty. This made a nice meal with orange cilantro rice.

This is an easy delicious recipe! I wasn't sure about using the molasses but it tastes great. This is going into the regular rotation. Thanks Julia!

This was sooooo good! I only had chicken breasts so I cut down the cooking time. The sauce makes this dish! Hubby loved it!

This recipe is the best i have made it about 5 times now and will be making it again tonight. My brother is 15 and he loves it my 1 year old niece loves this also. I say if you use some garlic salt very sparcley it gives the chicken a great taste.

I loved the sauce (I'm a big curry fan)so I think this would be more enjoyable with tenders where you can really taste the sauce with every bite.
