I don’t remember where I ran across this recipe but I do remember I modified it a little bit. I’ve got picky eaters in this house. Don’t get be wrong, I don’t let that stop me. I go by my mother’s old motto:
If you are hungry enough, you’ll eat it.
One doesn’t like curry, the other doesn’t like creamy. One doesn’t like sweet, the other doesn’t like salt. What’s a girl to do? Tell them to shut the f&#k up and eat it, that’s what.
Anyway, I came across this recipe appropriately named Deviled Chicken. It sounded weird. After a moment’s contemplation I decided “eh, what the hell.” I find that’s the answer to most things in life.
Before you judge once you hear the ingredients, please don’t toss it aside. It’s actually VERY good. Even people who don’t like these ingredients tend to like this chicken. It’s super easy and it’s really good. Sinfully good. Just…trust me. Don’t bitch until you try it.
First, get some chicken. The recipe calls for a fryer chicken cup up. All I had were chicken quarters so, that’s what they get. Mind you make sure you line a cookie sheet with foil. And just a friendly tip: Make sure the cookie sheet has sides, like a lip on all sides. Yeah, I totally forgot about that. Chicken juice all over the oven floor.
Now sprinkle some seasoned salt on the chicken.
Now you are going to mix together some curry, butter, honey, mustard and salt. And I’m not showing you a picture of it because it looks like baby formula poop and you won’t want to make it. But seriously, trust me, it’s really good.
Ok, so spread the sauce on the chicken and bake the hell out of it brushing it with sauce once or twice before it’s done, and once more once it’s out of the oven. It turns a wonderful, tasty, juicy golden color when you are done. Man it’s so good!
It’s one of those things you’ll have to trust me on. It’s delicious. And aside from the honey, it’s pretty diabetic friendly too. Ok, so the honey is really NOT diabetic friendly but it’s such a minimal amount.
Or that’s what I tell myself anyway.
I’ll stop pestering you and give you the recipe. Cause really. DO IT!
