Aunt Carolyn's Chicken

Note:  My sister just made a trip up to Huntsville for work and while she was there she was able to visit some of our family.      She had supper with my Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Alton whom are very, very special to my sisters and I.      K brought back this chicken recipe that Aunt Carolyn made for her.     I haven't made it yet, but trust me, if it comes from the kitchen of my Mom or my Aunt Carolyn.... it will be delicious!!

Aunt Carolyn's Chicken

½ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 broiler/fryer chicken, cut up (I use chicken breast)
½ cup butter or margarine, melted, divided
¼ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup honey
¼ cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder


In a bowl or bag, combine flour, salt and cayenne pepper; add chicken pieces and dredge or shake to coat. Pour 4 tablespoons butter into a 13” X 9” baking pan; place chicken in pan, turning pieces once to coat. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 30 minutes. Combine brown sugar, honey, lemon juice, soy sauce, curry powder and remaining butter; pour over chicken. Bake 45 minutes more or until chicken is tender, basting several times with pan drippings. Yield: 4-6 servings. (When using the chicken breast, I don’t cook quite as long as the 45 minutes. You can watch it and cook until tender and done. During the baking time, I baste the chicken often with the juices in the pan.)

I'm a lurker and this looks delicious! But I was wondering if you cover it at all? You mentioned it was uncovered for the first cooking half, but did you cover it for the second part?

Always looking for a different chicken recipe, this looks like one I'll have to try.
