This Honey Curry Chicken bakes in the oven in about an hour, making it a great week night meal.

For a recipe to qualify as a great weeknight dinner it needs to be quick, no-fuss, and inexpensive. That’s exactly why this Baked Honey Curry Chicken is a regular at our dinner table. All you need to do is place chicken pieces on a pan, mix up the sauce, and pour it on top. It takes an hour to bake and requires basting every 15 minutes, but that also works out great for homework time. I can sit at the kitchen table helping the kids with homework and baste as needed. By the time dinner is ready, homework is done as well. It’s a win-win!
