Sticky Honey Curry Chicken
This 20-minute chicken recipe is perfect for weeknight meals when you want something delicious but low-effort.
Looking for a quick chicken recipe that tastes great? I’ve got you covered with this sticky honey curry chicken.
First, let’s talk about the sauce: It’s addicting.
It’s sweet, savory, buttery – and sticky.
The honey, mustard, and curry powder blend beautifully together.
You may want to make a double batch of the sauce, so you can enjoy more of it throughout the week.
And the chicken.
This chicken is pan fried, so it comes together pretty quickly. All in all, you can have dinner on the table in about 20 minutes.
Since natural sweeteners like honey and maple syrup are allowed in a paleo diet, this recipe is technically paleo friendly. However, it’s pretty heavy on the honey so there’s a fair amount of sugar in it.
Dark meat chicken (thighs and drumsticks) is almost always cheaper than chicken breasts. But you have to know how to prepare it deliciously.
This recipe for baked chicken thighs is the best, essential recipe that results in a juicy, flavorful inside with a crispy exterior. I think you’ll love it!
