Caribbean Chicken

I love this recipe.  Ok, I love a lot of chicken recipes but this one, inspired by a delicious dish my sister-in-law Mary serves at family functions makes my mouth water.  I try to keep all the ingredients on hand just so I can make it when the craving calls! Plus it makes my house smell amazing!  It’s pretty sweet with the brown sugar or honey but the mango chutney/curry/mustard combination makes it come alive.  You may have to hunt for the bottled chutney; a lot of stores keep it in the canned fruit aisle placed up high but just ask your store manager.  I picked up Trader Joe’s mango chutney last week and love it.  If desired you can serve this over cooked brown rice.  So tasty!

    Oh my goodness Karen, I cook this recipe at least once a month!! I still have the old recipe book you made for our young women’s group and the paper recipe is covered in curry and mango chutney! It was the recipe I used when I first had my parents over for dinner in my new apartment my junior year of college. I also cooked it for a gourmet club we used to belong to, and have since shared the recipe with many friends. It is so delicious and I’m glad it’s online now so I don’t have to be so careful with the old paper recipe :).
