    Serves: 4 

    • 1 (1.3kg) whole chicken, cut into pieces
    • 110g butter, melted
    • 170g honey
    • 4 tablespoons prepared mustard
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon curry powder

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:1hr15min  ›  Ready in:1hr20min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Place chicken pieces in a shallow roasting tin. If you are using chicken thighs or breasts with skin, place them skin side up. 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 the time for chicken breasts), basting every 15 minutes with the cooking juices, until the chicken is nicely browned and cooked through.


    You can use 1 to 1.3kg of chicken pieces, like drumsticks and thighs, instead of jointing a whole chicken.
    To ensure the chicken stays moist, you can cover with foil for the first 30 minutes of baking, then remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 45 minutes, basting every 15 minutes.

    Something else. i added a clove of garlic for extra flavour and used chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken  -  11 Oct 2010


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


    Made up as "marinade" to put on chicken breast fillets when still frozen. Added garlic to the mix and slightly more curry powder (personal taste!) - went down very well with family - asked for it to maked more!!  -  31 Aug 2013
