Combine the melted butter, honey, mustard, salt and curry powder and pour the mixture over the chicken. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/4 hours (1/2 less for chicken breasts), basting every 15 minutes with the cooking juices, until the chicken is nicely browned and cooked through.

Used the boneless chicken breast. This was very tasty. Did add a dash of garlic powder. - 23 Apr 2011
