Honey Baked Chicken

I tried this recipe for Honey Baked Chicken for dinner this evening. It was easy and tasty. I used chicken tenders and reduced the cooking time to a little less than an hour. The chicken and sauce would work well over rice over rice. (This recipe is adapted from allrecipes.com.)

1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

Place chicken pieces in a shallow baking pan, skin side up. Combine the melted butter, honey, mustard, salt, curry powder, and garlic, and pour the mixture over the chicken. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/4 hours (75 minutes), basting every 15 minutes with pan drippings, until the chicken is nicely browned and tender and the juices run clear. (I actually covered the chicken with foil for the first half hour and then removed the foil for the last half hour so that the chicken would brown.)
