Call me quirky but I think that’s one sexy picture. I love how the chicken is a lovely shade of golden browned and the cutting board is covered in succulent, dijon/curry/soy goodness. The only thing I would change about this meal is deciding to pair it with some overly aggressive ginger glazed carrots. They completely overpowered the chicken.

BAH Note: As long as you remember to prep the chicken the night before, this recipe will treat you just fine.
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/3 cup dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 4 bone in chicken breasts
In a medium bowl, whisk together the honey, dijon, curry powder, and soy sauce. Transfer the liquid to a large bowl or plastic bag and add the chicken. Refrigerate overnight.
When ready to cook, heat oven to 350 degrees. Place the chicken and marinade in a large baking dish, cover tightly with foil, and bake for 1 hour. After an hour, increase heat to 375 degrees, remove the foil, and baste the chicken with the juices. Bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees.

That is one sexy piece of chicken. Minus the soy sauce.
Beth, the soy can easily be omitted…and the chicken will still be sexy.
I wonder if I would need to use some kind of a brine instead? Essentially the soy (and all of that salt in it) is likely tenderizing the chicken.
Good question Beth. You could make it without the soy sauce and without brining to see what you think. If it’s not moist enough, you could try adding a short brine and then marinate overnight to see what impact that has.
Bawk Bawk! That surely IS some sexy chicken!
I was concerned that calling chicken sexy might be….umm…odd. Thanks for not making me feel like a super freak.
girl, Lent is up this week, i will gnaw the hell out of meat for the rest of Life now. and i might start with this.
Lan, should I be concerned that you are going to bust out the bucket of KFC at 12:01 am on Sunday?
OMG. why does that image amuse, scare and appeal to me???
That is one foine piece of poultry. I don’t know if I would have been able to resist stealing a few spoonfuls of the juices straight from the pan.
There’s only one way to find out Ali. You need to make this and see if you have the willpower to resist.
I love how easy this is! If only I could remember to marinade things . . . That picture is indeed gawgeous. =)
Jenna, I have to put notes on the menu to remind me to marinate. But even that is no guarantee that I actually remember to do it.
Yes, indeed sexy….. anything with a little honey works for me!
Tiffany, I LOVE the name of your blog. I agree that the honey helps the sexy of this chicken.
That Wendi. She’s so quirky.
We love you anyway.
Thanks for not judging Jennifer.
Succulent and sexy I say. Three times real fast. Love the flavors and quirky…it’s all good!
Barbara, I never figured I’d inspire a tongue twister.
I agree with you Wendi, now thats one sexy photo 🙂 The ingredients you’ve used sound just the thing to zing up a chook huh. Nice one girl 🙂
Anna, the more I think about it, the more inclined I am to serve Overnight Chicken this weekend for Easter supper. Who says holiday dinners can’t be sexy?
Gosh I love chicken and that picture definitely shows it in its “raw” fine state.
Elizabeth, I’ve truly never seen a slab of chicken look sexier.
That did it! Now I am seriously hungry!
I will never stop loving all the ways that chicken can be made!
I think everyone should make this chicken. Sorry to make you hungry for lunch when it’s still breakfast time.
