1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 broiler-fryer chicken, cut up
1/2 cup (that's one stick) butter, melted and divided
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar (light is ok, too)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice (from the bottle is good)
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1.5 tsp. curry powder
Tired of just plain baked chicken? A note of sweetness, a little zing from the red pepper.
Note: If you're using boneless chicken breast instead of cut-up chicken with the bones in, the chicken will be done quicker; keep an eye on it. The chicken is done when it's no longer pink on the inside. Try picking up a piece, if it's still a little floppy, then it's not done through yet.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Add the chicken and dredge the pieces in the mix to coat.
Pour 4 Tbsp. butter into a 9 x 13 inch pan. Place the chicken in the pan, turning the pieces once to coat. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine brown sugar, honey, lemon juice, soy sauce, curry powder and remaining butter. Pour it over chicken.
Bake 45 minutes more or until chicken is tender, basting several times with the drippings from the pan. Serves 4 to 6. Enjoy! -Diana
