There’s something about Fall.

Even though we frequently wake up to mornings like this…:

…which signifies the earth going to sleep for a long winter’s nap, there’s something oddly cozy and comforting about the cold, rainy, windy, snowy weather.

Unless you’re my electrician husband who frequently gets stuck doing a six hour wire pull outside in the frigid temperatures. He doesn’t find it very cozy at all.

Which is why I like to have a hot, comforting meal waiting for him when he gets home. And the following is one of his favorites.

Honey Mustard Chicken

  • 1/3 cup Earth Balance, melted
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 3 Tb prepared mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 3 pounds chicken breasts (**I like to filet mine to make them thinner)

Preheat oven to 350. In a greased 9×13 casserole, arrange chicken breasts.

In a bowl, combine all other ingredients and whisk well. Pour over the chicken breasts.

Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour or until meat is no longer pink.

** If you fileted your chicken breasts, your baking time will be reduced to about 40 minutes.

This recipe can also be prepared in a slow cooker. Simply add the ingredients to your crock pot and turn on low for a minimum of six hours.

Serve chicken with rice and a vegetable.

My hubby likes the sauce to mingle and dance with his rice.

Oh, and don’t be jealous of my fine china plates. They were brought out especially for the occasion.

Happy Cozy Fall Days!
