    Love this, definitely our new favorite recipe and its so easy! I heat the ingredients in the microwave to make it faster. Haven't tried baking the chicken yet, we put it on the grill and it was excellent! Just baste the chicken like a bbq sauce. And yes, l loved it with Jasmine rice!

    This has become a family favorite in our household, a new "go to" recipe. I like one poster's idea of substituting salmon for chicken. I will have to give that a try.

    One of our family favorites. And soooooo easy. I also have used this sauce on salmon-pour over and bake for 10 minutes. Great with white or jasmine rice.

    I have made this several times -- one of the easiest and yet tastiest chicken dishes I have ever prepared -- again Everyday Food to the rescue. I serve over rice with French green beans.

    The combination of honey, curry, and dijon was spicy and sweet. This dish was very easy to prepare and cook. We served it on some quinoa leftover from a previous dinner. Very tasty; I will make it again.
