Curried Honey Mustard Chicken, Rice, Broccoli

I tried a delicious honey mustard chicken at a friend's house years ago, and this recipe with the curry powder sounded like a fun twist on the idea. I'm guessing you could use regular mustard if you prefer it over Dijon; let me know if you try it!

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken
adapted from
2 T butter, melted
1/3 c honey
1/4 c Dijon-style prepared mustard
4 t curry powder
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
3 chicken breasts, cut into half or thirds

In a medium bowl combine melted butter, honey, mustard, curry powder and cayenne. Mix well with a whisk. Place chicken breasts in a baking dish coated with cooking spray and pour honey mustard mixture over chicken. Cover and place in refrigerator. Marinate 4 hours our overnight. Preheat oven to 375. Remove dish from refrigerator and bake, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove cover and bake about 10 minutes more, until chicken is cooked through.

1 c rice
broccoli florets

Cook rice according to directions. Serve chicken on top of rice, and spoon sauce over as desired.

Steam broccoli. Season with salt and pepper.
