My Honey Curry Chicken recipe is a family favorite that I often forget about. The mixture of honey in the curry chicken is so sweet and delicious and a huge crowd favorite!

Honey Curry Chicken

I got the recipe for this honey curry chicken a good 15 years ago from my high school BFF, Natalie, and she got it from her mother in law (K.K).  It’s written down on a small ratty paper, that when I thought of making this recently, I had to search for it.  It’s so stinkin’ easy, I don’t know why I don’t make this more often! I also made it for my friend Kelsey 10 years ago, now she associates this recipe with me. She requests I make it every time I see her (she lives in Utah).  I love anything with curry, and the yellow curry is fairly light, not too overwhelming.

The ingredients for this honey curry chicken are simple:

  1. honey
  2. curry powder
  3. mustard
  4. butter
  5. salt

Not counting the chicken, we’ve got a five ingredient meal right here!

I doubled the below recipe to make this for a group, this is what it looks like just out of the oven:

Melt in glass bowl:

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup butter


  • 1/4 cup (wet) mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. yellow curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  1. Pour over thawed chicken, approximately 3 chicken breasts cut up.  Not too small, not too big.  I also use 7 or 8 chicken tenders, and it is less cutting for me.
  2. Cook longer if using frozen chicken.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, broil the last 5 minutes to brown the chicken to desired look.

  6. I made this for dinner tonight and we really enjoyed it! My chicken was overcooked at 35 minutes, so next time I’ll start checking it sooner, but it’s definitely one that I will make again. Thanks so much!

  7. I lowered the butter & yellow mustard amount. But added a squirt of honey mustard & also tripled the curry amount for a different twist. Very good & served over rice & pad tai with egg drop soup on the side
