Curried Chicken

This recipe has earned an A+ from my family members! I came across it a few weeks ago at allrecipes.com and thought that I would give it a try.  I know that the majority of my dinner recipes are for chicken, and that is because I stock up on split chicken breasts when one of my local grocery stores have them on sale for 99 cents a pound!  My oldest son has loved this so much that he will often stop by the store on his way home from work for a package of chicken and will make this recipe by himself!

The original recipe called for a whole chicken cut up. I have made it with drumsticks since that is what I had on hand at the time I first made it.  I am sure that any cut of chicken meat will be fine!

1 large pkg of chicken drumsticks

1/2 c. butter, divided

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1/4 c. honey

1/4 c. molasses

1/4 c. yellow mustard

1-2 tsp. curry powder

Place chicken pieces into a greased 9×13 baking dish. Melt 1/4 c. of butter and drizzle it over the chicken. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper.  Bake chicken in a 375 degree oven, uncovered, for 45 minutes.  While the chicken is cooking, combine the honey, molasses, mustard, curry powder, and remaining butter in a medium saucepan. Simmer gently for about 5 minutes. Set off the heat while the chicken continues to cook.

When the 45 minutes are over, pour the curry mixture over the chicken and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until chicken is done.  Serve with rice, using the curry mixture as a sauce over the rice.
