Honey Dijon Baked Chicken

“This recipe is from the Time-Life Family Favorites collection. I use my own homemade curry powder, posted on this site in this recipe. Be forewarned - this is extremely spicy with both the curry powder and the red pepper flakes so make at your own risk! The raisins are optional - I usually don't add them but if they sound good to you go for it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9x9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Between sheets of waxed paper, pound chicken to 1/2-inch thickness.
  2. In a small bowl, combine curry powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Rub half of the spice mixture on the chicken. Arrange chicken in the baking dish.
  3. To the remaining spice mixture add mustard, honey and red pepper flakes. Stir well to blend. Spread over chicken.
  4. Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes. Uncover and bake until chicken is tender, basting once with butter, halfway through, about 12 minutes.
  5. Remove chicken to serving platter and sprinkle with almonds and raisins if desired. I serve with white rice to take a bit of the edge off!
