Honey Baked Chicken

Honey Baked Chicken (The Gingered Whisk) This is a fantastic chicken dish to make for company or for a great meal! Love the sauce and the golden skin!

This is by far my absolute favorite way to eat chicken. This chicken is super moist, and super tasty, the skin is gorgeously browned, and the sauce is amazing.  It's easy to prepare, too, and it looks as fantastic as it tastes. This baked chicken dish is great whether you have company coming over for a dinner party or you are just cooking for family.

Honey Baked Chicken (The Gingered Whisk) - Awesome chicken!!! Great chicken for a dinner party! So delicious!

Don't be scared of the mustard and curry powder combination in the sauce. You don't really taste either addition, but they combine with the honey and melted butter beautifully to create a luxurious sauce for the chicken. Can a baked chicken recipe be luxurious? I'm going with it. Be brave enough to try this chicken and you will become fast friends forever!

If you need a great veggie side dish that you can cook in the oven along with this chicken, I highly recommend my Garlic Roasted Zucchini! Its as simple as dumping stuff in a pan and letting it cook! You will need to let it cook a few minutes extra if you have both the chicken and the zucchini in the oven together, but it will still turn out to be one fabulous meal!

    1. Nope! Keep it uncovered, that will help you get that gorgeous golden brown skin!

  6. What temperature we use when we bake the chicken?

    1. Bake the chicken at 350 F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. :) Enjoy!

  7. Made this tonight and it was delicious. It wasn't crispy and dark like in the picture but none the less delicious. We did use chicken breast instead of thighs or legs.

  8. Ummm... this sounds AMAZING. I'm not a big chicken fan, but I will absolutely be trying this soon. Only a few more weeks until my little guy can eat honey!
