Curried Honey Dijon Roasted Chicken

Curried Honey Dijon Roasted Chicken

I like curries of all sorts and I am constantly looking for new ways to enjoy curry. A while ago I came across a recipe for curried honey dijon roasted chicken that sounded good. It is basically a recipe for honey and dijon chicken with some curry. I had been wanting to try honey dijon chicken as well and I thought that the idea of that amazing curry aroma and flavour could only make it better. I was sold and it quickly made it to my meal plan. Though I liked the look of the sliced chicken breast with the golden brown outside and white inside I decided to go with chicken thighs with the skin and bone as they have more flavour. This chicken was really easy to make; you just have to mix the marinade and let it marinate and then roast it in the oven. Pretty much all of the hard work is in the waiting. The curried honey dijon roasted chicken turned out really nicely. The chicken was moist and tender and full of flavour. I really liked the combination of the curry, mustard and honey and they balanced out well. I garnished the chicken with some chopped cilantro and served it with some coconut butternut squash and sauteed chard with raisins and pine nuts.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon curry powder
2 tablespoons soy sauce
cayenne pepper to taste (or some other form of heat)
pepper to taste
4 chicken thighs (with bone and skin)

Directions:
1. Mix everything but the chicken in a bowl.
2. Add the chicken, cover and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.
3. Place the chicken in a baking dish (reserving the marinade) and cover with foil.
4. Bake in a 375F oven for 20 minutes.
5. Remove the foil and brush on some of the marinade.
6. Bake uncovered until the juices run clear, about 20-30 minutes, brushing with the marinade periodically.

I've never thought of adding some curry to honey dijon. Great-looking chicken you've got there!

Elra said...

That look really delectable, and curry and honey dijon is very unusual combination.

Natashya said...

What great colour you got on your chicken. So glistening and inviting. Curry sounds like a great addition to honey dijon.

I agree, it's very unusual but the combination sounds quite enticing-- looks smashing too. A great east-west fusion here!

What a great combination - The photo of the finished product speaks for itself!!

Maris said...

This looks so good! I'm always looking for new ways to cook chicken.

Chicken is so versatile but can easily be boring if you make it the same way, time after time!

Fearless Kitchen said...

This is a really interesting and creative idea!

Mindy said...

Oh yum!
This will be dinner tonight. Thanks so much for sharing!

DocChuck said...

WOW! Those thighs look good. And, so easy to do.

Thighs are my very favorite part of the bird, the most flavorful in my opinion.

Thanks for sharing your recipe.

PaniniKathy said...

Those sweet-spicy flavors sound great to me - looks so delicious too. Looking forward to trying this one soon!

Stacey Snacks said...

I can just imagine the flavors all mingling together. I love the flavor of chicken thighs.

Marjie said...

I've been using a lot of dijon on fish and chicken lately, and it's great for adding tons of flavor without tons of ingredients!

Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) said...

Fantastic combination -- the skin looks so tempting, though I'd remove it before eating.

Heather said...

Piggy said...

I always roast chicken thighs with honey, dijon mustard and lemon juice, but your version with curry powder sounds really interesting! I'm gonna give it a try tonight!

meeso said...

Curry is always good, great looking chicken!

Shannon said...

I made this for dinner last night and it was mouthwateringly delicious (and super easy)! I didn't believe that it would be enough marinade for four chicken thighs, but when I put them all in a ziploc bag to marinate, it was more than enough. Thanks!

Marc @ NoRecipes said...

Great combo Kevin, this looks especially good!

Joann Kim said...

I just used 3 of your recipes, the chicken was amazing!! Thank yoU!!

Now that we are on a fixed income, I'm always looking for recipes that use chicken thighs (though we both prefer breats).

This recipe was excellent. Perfect for a busy nurse like myself to come home and make for her retired husband who puttered about all day. LOL!

Nathalie said...

The recipe is too tempting! I'm trying to make this tonight (chicken is marinating as we speak)

I'll let you all know how delicious it is!

Jeanne said...

I'm sorry, that picture is pure food p0rn! So refreshing to see somebody other than me actually chooses thighs over bland breast meat and eats the skin (the best part!). Bookmarked.

MrsDocChuck said...

I forgot to tell to that the closet is a terrible place to be. I should know, our son took a terribly long time to "come out" of the closet, due to my husband's hostilities. But eventually Chuck got over it and Chuck Jr. is living a happy life.

Please don't limit yourself!

Nathalie said...

I made this recipe last night (along with your roasted sweet potato wedges)
The unusual combination of honey, curry, and dijon mustard was WONDERFUL!

I just HAD to come back here and leave a comment.

I made this the other night for my husband and I and it was INSANELY GOOD! I followed the recipe except that I used bonesless, skinless chicken breast, cooked with foil on until the last 15 minutes or so. DELICIOUS!!

Thanks!

PaniniKathy said...

Just made this tonight and it was so incredibly good! My husband loved it too and he is not a fan of mustard (only told him about the dijon after the fact and he was surprised). One of the better chicken dishes I've had - thanks so much for the excellent recipe!

kickpleat said...

I just made this for dinner tonight and it was so delicious!

Ivy Rachelle said...

I made this for dinner last Thursday. It is wonderful! The picture looks much better than mine did. It was a pretty dish but I wish it had more a glazed finish. This is definitely being added to my arsenal. THANKS!

Best family friendly curry ever! This is now my go to recipe. Thanks!

TateTwo said...

I made this for dinner last night and have to say it's pretty awesome. I used a country style dijon and added baby carrots to the pan, letting them roast in with the sauce. Just a wonderful dish and I love the curry!
