Honey Dijon Baked Chicken

Honey Dijon Baked Chicken

Diana Rattray
Split chicken breasts are baked with a delicious mixture of honey, spicy mustard, and curry powder, for a super everyday meal. If you have time, marinate the chicken breasts for an hour or two before baking.

This chicken is absolutely delicious with cooked kale or chard and baked potatoes. Serve a simple green salad or sliced tomatoes on the side.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Marinate: 1 hour

Total Time: 2 hours, 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup Dijon or spicy brown mustard
  • 3 teaspoons curry powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash ground cayenne pepper
  • 4 split chicken breast halves, bone-in, skin removed or left on


In a bowl, combine the honey, mustard, curry powder, butter, and peppers; blend well. Wash chicken breasts and pat dry. Trim away any excess fat and remove skin, if desired. Arrange the chicken breasts, skin or meaty side up, in a lightly greased baking pan. Coat the chicken with the honey mixture. Cover with foil and refrigerate for an hour or two.

Bake the chicken, covered tightly with foil, in a 375° oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil and baste the chicken with pan juices. Continue baking, uncovered, for 30 minutes longer, basting every 10 to 15 minutes.
Serves 4.

We loved them!, Member KarenMcKinneyJones

My husband had the split chicken breasts laid out when I got home from work with this new recipe, so we marinated them for just over 1 hour and then he cooked them on the grill very slowly. WOW - they were delicious!
