Honey Baked Chicken

Honey Baked Chicken (The Gingered Whisk) This is a fantastic chicken dish to make for company or for a great meal! Love the sauce and the golden skin!

This is by far my absolute favorite way to eat chicken. This chicken is super moist, and super tasty, the skin is gorgeously browned, and the sauce is amazing.  It's easy to prepare, too, and it looks as fantastic as it tastes. This baked chicken dish is great wether you have company coming over for a dinner party or you are just cooking

I love new friendships. I love it that even when two couples are so distinctly different they can have so much in common as well. When you move to a new house, hundreds of miles from your previous life, finding new friends can be so daunting. We have really been blessed by meeting an amazing couple that we have instantly clicked with. Our new friends Rachel and Matt are lovely people, super nice, and just a few doors down from us. We often end up walking our dogs together, and no matter what we end up doing, we always have a wonderful time with them.

Joel and Matt have been having a fantastic time preparing their "Go Bags" (you know, in case zombies attack), and Rachel and I have fun hanging out, too. She likes to cook and bake, but so far we haven't actually made anything together. We usually end up making a cup of tea and just sitting and talking (which is wonderful for a lonely stay-at-home mom like myself!). We have plans to do some sugar cookies together, soon, though! The other week they brought dinner over to our house (it's more baby-eating friendly here) and she made this fantastic dish that she said I could share with you. Since she has shared it with us, its quickly become our all-time favorite chicken recipe!

Don't be scared of the mustard and curry powder combination in the sauce. You don't really taste either addition, but they combine with the honey and melted butter beautifully to create a luxurious sauce for the chicken. Can a baked chicken recipe be luxurious? I'm going with it.

  1. Excellent recipe. I loved it

  2. I've been told that I'm allowed to make this recipe again. Thanks so much. It was delicious

    1. Haha that's awesome. :) Glad it went over well!

  3. What kind of mustard did you use?

    1. Any kind of mustard you happen to have on hand will work just fine!

  4. Do you think this would work well with a whole chicken too??

    1. Nope! Keep it uncovered, that will help you get that gorgeous golden brown skin!

  6. What temperature we use when we bake the chicken?

    1. Bake the chicken at 350 F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. :) Enjoy!

  7. Made this tonight and it was delicious. It wasn't crispy and dark like in the picture but none the less delicious. We did use chicken breast instead of thighs or legs.
