Simple Supper Mondays, Volume 5: Chicken Diablo

This is an old favorite. It's been a Keeper Recipe in my recipe box since HIGH SCHOOL, if you can believe it! This chicken dish is quick to put together, quick to cook, and comes out REALLY moist and juicy. I'm planning on making it tonight for dinner, and my mouth is already watering!

I love that this meal only has 6 ingredients. LOVE it. Sometimes I enjoy getting a real complex gourmet recipe and creating it in my kitchen. The downside to this, though, is getting COMPLETELY overwhelmed by the sheer amount of THINGS that I need to make sure I have. With the recipe I am about to share, I ALWAYS have the ingredients on hand.

So, in a pinch when faced with the question, "What am I going to MAKE for DINNER tonight?!? AUGH!!" I can always answer with, "Ah, yes, Chicken Diablo!"

Chicken Diablo
  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 4 TBS Butter
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup Mustard
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Curry Powder
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt butter on the stove over low heat. Once melted, stir in honey, mustard, salt and curry. Place chicken in suitable oven casserole dish (spray with cooking spray). Pour butter mixture over chicken. Bake for 45 minutes.

Many of you probably have a similar recipe - but I love the addition of curry. The butter seems to seal in the juices, so the chicken is so moist and very flavorful. And, as always, it's SIMPLE and comes together in a SNAP!

I have no idea how I started this tradition, but I tend to serve this dish up with Spanish Rice. I just get the Lipton's "Fiesta Sides" and follow the instructions. For whatever reason, the tastes go well together. Who knew?

Happy Eating!

What are your Simple Supper recipes??


  1. Do you have a George Foreman Grill? Dave does not eat dairy or eggs or even tomato's. So we don't eat meals with sauces. I normally don't think about what's for dinner until about 4:00. That's when I get out some meat, (frozen with three or four to a bag) and thaw it in some water. I steam some fresh veggies or micro wave a frozen bag of veggies. Then I either sap potatoes in the microwave or I put together one of those lipton type rice dishes or maybe even steam some brown rice if I think ahead. So, I season the meat and cook it in the Foreman grill. It's great because it cooks on both sides at the same time and keeps meat really tender. While I cook the meat I steam the veggies and make a side starch. It never takes me more than 30 min. or so from beginning to end and normally more like 15 min. It's healthy and simple. Austin is so used to eating like this that he can't eat things with cream sauces. If you like Salmon, it's great in the Foreman grill, although it stinks up the kitchen. If you like Shrimp, you can put it on a skewer and season. Takes like three minutes to cook. If you like fish, (I'm thinking you don't but Bill does) you can make a really good homemade tarter sauce with mayo and relish. Blend and refrigerate ahead of time. It's so good.

  2. Ok, I know what's for dinner at my house tonight, thanks! I had already thawed chicken & couldn't decide how to cook it - this one's too easy to pass up.

  3. Steph, I want to make this recipe tonight and was just going over the I use regular yellow mustard or another kind of mustard?

  4. recipe is awesome. I made it for dinner tonight and Sonny was in Heaven!
    I did it exactly like you said and even made the Lipton's Fiesta rice (by the way, all the Lipton Rice packages are 10 for $10 at Acme this week...stock up!). I added a tomato side dish that worked perfectly with fact, I loved the whole meal so much I'm going to do a blog post on it...I'll post the tomato recipe in it and I'll link back here to give you credit for the chicken...

    Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!!


Hey! Share a thought or two - I'd love to hear from you! ~ Steph
