New Recipe... Overnight Chicken

The second I found this recipe, I just knew it would be delicious AND easy! I think that's the best combination when it comes to feeding your family! (Maybe healthy should be important, too, but lets face it, taste & quickness overrule in our home!)

This is a 5 ingredient overnight marinade (hence the name). So, while your making one dinner, you can throw this together for the next night. I suggest marinading it in the dish you will cook it in... You could marinade it in a baggie, but doing it in a dish allows you to take it directly from the fridge to the oven! Throw some simple sides together (bread, veggie, salad, applesauce) and dinner is ready!

I will definitely be making this recipe again! This chicken was so yummy there weren't even any leftovers! Not even one child complained! WINNER! 

This is another one that I will add to our Meal Plan rotation. I hope you enjoy it, too! Go HERE to see a list of all my new recipes I've tried!

Overnight Chicken:


1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon curry powder
4 Tablespoons soy sauce
4 chicken breasts

In a small bowl, mix all of the marinade ingredients together.

Put chicken in baking dish & pour over marinade. Make sure each piece is completely covered. Cover with foil & keep in refrigerator overnight.

The next day... Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 1 hour with foil. Baste chicken. Bake for another 15 minutes uncovered.

 **This is an easy recipe to double... That's what I did. And I had enough sauce/marinade leftover that I put it in a container to use another time! Also I didn't have any dijion mustard, so I used THIS substitute & I didn't have any white wine so I substituted chicken stock! If you're missing an ingredient always look for a substitute!

This recipe would also be a great one to freeze for another time. Next time, I will probably do 2... one to eat & one to freeze! The leftovers would also be great for a salad! Enjoy!!!
