Bean's Honey Baked Chicken
I made this last week & it was great! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
I would make it a bit more spicy by adding more cayenne pepper & adding crushed
red pepper. Its a keeper! I used dry mustard this time & will try Dijon next
Cookin' Dad's notes:
This dish was awesome--one of the best western chicken dishes I have ever had! I
knew from the ingredients that it would be very tasty. My family and our two
dinner guests loved this dish! In addition to the awesome flavor, the chicken
was also very tender. Also, for folks who may not particularly care for the
curry flavor, there was only a trace of this flavor in the dish. I made a few
small changes in this dish. I used 6 drumsticks and 8 whole wings. About 12 hrs.
prior to baking, I sprinkled the following dry rub on the chicken:
2 1/4 tsp. salt*
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
*Did not use salt in sauce, because I wanted it to have plenty of time to
penetrate chicken--tasty all the way to the bone. For the sauce part, I made a
batch and a half, because everyone in my family likes extra sauce. Plus, I used
much more than one whole fryer. I didn't use mustard powder because the bag that
I originally had stored in the pantry had gone bad. Instead, I substituted each
tablespoon of mustard powder for 3 tablespoons of Dijon mustard (used 4 1/2
tbsp. Dijon mustard).
Thanks for a killer chicken recipe!
