Reviews for Curried Honey Chicken
"So easy and so delicious! I have used boneless chicken breasts at times instead of the bone-in, and it has turned out great. I sometimes sprinkle some blanched almonds over the top of each chicken breast as a garnish, which is pretty and adds a nice crunchy texture to the dish."
"This is just amazing!"
"My husband and I liked the extra sauce on top, but I left it off for my 5 and 2 year old who did not like the extra flavor."
"Deliciously flavored, tender and juicy. If I don't want to spend the time baking and making the sauce separately, I mix the sauce ingredients with the cornstarch and water. Then I use boneless chicken which I cut up into bite sized pieces. I mix the chicken and sauce together and simmer in a large skillet till done. Serve it over rice like a traditional curry."
