This is a recipe I came up with when I bought chicken thighs on sale but couldn’t decide on what to do with them.  I wanted a sweet marinade but also wanted a spicy curry taste, so I combined the two.  After a little tweaking of the flavors, I came up with this marinade.  While it tasted a little potent straight from the mixing bowl, the final flavor  was fantastic.  And the color of the final dish…a deep dark reddish brown; as if it had been painted on.  Enjoy!

In a mixing bowl I whisked together 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce, 1/2 cup honey, 2 teaspoons chile paste, 2 teaspoons curry powder, 3 tablespoons dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar and 3 minced garlic cloves.

I tossed 3/4 of the marinade with some chicken thighs in a bowl and let them marinate in the refridgerator for 4 hours turning them every hour to recoat.

I put them in a non-stick roasting pan and cooked them at 375 degrees for 50 minutes brushing with the reserved 1/4 marinade a few times in the last 15 minutes of cooking.

And this was the final result.  See what what I meant about the color?  I served it simply with rice and some steamed broccoli.  Enjoy!
