Curry powder, lemon juice, honey and mustard make a lip-smacking sauce for paprika-sprinkled chicken that is cooked in the microwave. The made-in minutes main dish is a favorite with my family, and I'm sure it will be with yours, too. -Tina Footen, Nampa, Idaho


  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves (6 ounces each), skin removed
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup spicy brown mustard
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Arrange chicken in a 9- or 10-in. microwave-safe pie plate, with the thickest side toward the outside of the plate. Sprinkle with paprika; top with lemon slices. Cover and microwave, on high for 6-8 minutes, rotating dish a half turn once.
  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until heated through; stir.
  3. Drain chicken; top with sauce. Cover and cook on high for 1-1/2 minutes until a thermometer reads 170°.
