bone-in chicken breast halves, with skin
Very good for a quick and easy curry dish. To shorten the baking time I cut boneless, skinless chicken into strips. If you're going to do that, reduce the amount of water since it has less time to thicken. Some have said the dish was too sweet, and that can be countered by using an imported marmalade, which is usually less sweet than American marmalade.
I make something similar. Only I add a small bottle of bbq sauce & 1 tsp. minced garlic, along with the orange marmalade.(I omit the curry) I also cook the chicken and the sauce in the slow cooker for 6 hrs. Serve over rice.
Delicious.. I too altered the recipe somewhat: used boneless skinless breasts, baked for 30 minutes, also I cut the water down to less than 1/4 cup and used about a tablespoon of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of jarred minced garlic. I didn't cover the dish in the oven and probably should have, as basting didn't actually seem necessary and I could have left it go. Having a penchant for spicier foods, I think I could increase the amount of curry next time or add a few other spices to kick it up a notch. Great idea for chicken!
I took some liberties with this recipe, and still it turned out to be very tasty. I substituted apricot preserves for the marmalade and curry powder for the paste. It was very good! My family enjoyed it with steamed rice. Thanks.
Very good! I used individually frozen (boneless and skinless) chicken breasts. Since they usually make quite a bit of juice when baked, I decreased the amount of water in the recipe. Also, I halved the recipe since I was only cooking 2 breasts. To seperate the 2 breasts from the plain one I was baking for my kids, I used foil. This kept the sauce right on the chicken, instead of spreading out through the pan. I served it with couscous, but had so much sauce left, I wished I had used white rice. The sauce would have been great over it. The chicken stayed very moist and had a nice appearance. I will be making this again!
Wow, what a great recipe! I varied it a bit: I added cilantro since I had a ton in my garden and instead of baking I grilled the chicken. I also put a bit of lime juice on top of the chicken immediately after putting it on the grill. What an amazing flavor adventure!! I paired it was a mango salsa and chili-lime corn on the cob. This has to be some of the best chicken I have had in a long time!!!
This dish hit the spot for my family. Used boneless skinless chicken breasts and substituted soy instead of water. Super simple to whip up and the sweet sauce goes well over rice.
Added about a tsp of fresh garlic, about 1/2 tsp dried red pepper flakes for spice, and 1/2 tsp more salt. I also recommend using skinless legs, thighs, or other dark meat pieces...the breast was just a little too dry w/out marinading prior to cooking (even after basting while cooking) for my tastes. Will definitely make dish again.
