A recipe for dinner so you can knit longer

Your family will think you put the knitting down for hours with this one…

Even my kids ask for this one…Enjoy

Honey Currey Chicken over Rice

put chicken parts or what ever you have in a roasting pan.

1/4 cup mustard
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup melted butter (marg)
4 tblsp curry powder

pour over chicken.
Put into a 350 degree oven for about 1 hour.

Make minute rice if you want more time to knit or 20 minute rice if you do not want to feel guilty about the time spent on dinner.



MMMMMMM sounds goooooooooooood. THanks!

Here’s an old stand bye. Throw either pork chops/ chicken breasts,etc. in the crock pot. Stir in some cream of… soup (fill in your favorite, I have used celery, mushroom, etc.) add seasonings, chopped onions, etc. some broth, I usually use chicken broth, but w/ pork could use beef or pork stock of course.

Set this on low and leave for the day… go and knit in your favorite space, go to work, then come home & knit, then go into kitchen.

Add some canned veggies, and turn crock pot on high. 20 minutes, its done.

I usually added corn and mushrooms.

This can be served w/ rice or fresh green salad… whatever is easier. I’ve used this since college days. So let’s just say it has been very well tested.!

Put a pound of navy beans in the crock pot and fill up to within an inch of the top with water or stock. Add onion, garlic, salt and pepper and any other seasonsing you like. Turn on high and let sit for a few hours (beans are done when you put one on the spoon, blow on it and the skin peels back). Turn on low till one hour before dinner. Add bag of mixed veggies and let heat back up. Serve with French bread, rolls, refrigerator biscuits, or crackers.

Everyone can eat whenever they are hungry and you don’t have to stop knitting except to feed yourself!

Kryssie, I was so intrigued by the title of your post I had to check it out! :rofl: Dinner preparation time is always harried around here because it’s about the time that everybody’s getting home; ironically, it’s always the time I want to knit most! This recipe sounds delicious–I’m going to try this either today or tomorrow. Thanks for enabling us knitting addicts!!!

Can you do that honey curry chicken in a crockpot? Either way I am pulling my chicken out to thaw when I go to refill my coffee this morning! YUM!

darn…I don’t have any curry powder! :pout:

One question–is it 1/2 cup of melted butter, or 1/2 stick? :??

Girls I am happy that I helped you with your kntting to help with dinner.

To Cookworm the reciepe calls for 1/2 cup. I am not sure what 1/2 stick is.

In Canada our blocked marg comes in 1/2 cup blocks and that is what I use.

Hope that helps…

To Yarn Mommy crockpot works just as well, low heat for about 4 hours.

Sorry I have not figured out how to post the questions on my answer post like some do. :doh:

My recipe-

Tell everyone to fend for themselves. :rofl:

I think there should be a recipe topic for all of knitters to share.

On those days that I don’t feel like cooking(or helping my mom cook), I like to make some kind of soup.

I like to cook ham, green beans, and potato soup; ham pot pie; or our casseroles(layer potatoes, some kind of frozen veggies, and some kind of meat on top, then put butter over it and bake at 350 for 2 hours :drooling: ).

There’s so many that are easy, though. Just about anything that you can throw in the oven and let it cook for ours is fine with me. :shrug:

In my house, we call this GYODD - get your own d@mn dinner :teehee:

I like to cook and the slow cooker is a wonderful thing. I soak black beans over night, toast and grind up cumin seeds, saute onions, red and green peppers, and jalapenos, then I brown off some ground turkey (beef) and then put the cumin, ground meat w/onion and pepper in a container and place in the refrigerator over night. Then 1st thing in the morning put everything in the crockpot, Add oregano and sliced garlic, cook on low. When you’re ready for dinner add canned tomato some really good hot sauce and frozen corn. And Voila! You got chili. I serve with shredded cheese, sour cream and Whole Food’s guacomole. If I’m strapped for time I’ll use canned beans and frozen peppers but I don’t like prepared chili powder. I know this recipe sound like it takes a while but it really doesn’t.

I also like mango curry chicken breasts. You take your chicken breasts and pound them lightly. In a saute pan with a lid saute sliced onions until translucent add a cup of chicken stock, a tsp (or to taste) of red curry paste. Desolve paste in stock and add Trader Joe’s Mango Sauce (that’s what I use) Add breasts to sauce, bring to boil, lower heat and cover. Let simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes. I serve over jasime rice.

As with the chili, while the chicken is simmering you are knitting. I think both dishes take about 20 minutes to prep.

:muah: :hug:

That stuff sounds amazing, Nadja.

Gingergal, I just finished putting everythign into a pan. It smells fantastic, but it makes a TON of sauce! I probably could have used half, and it would have covered my 3 chicken breasts no problem. It will make yummy gravy when added to a roux. mmmmmm…

ginger, in the questioners post, in the top right corner is a button with the word quote click that and it automatically sets up a post ith the quote.

To do multiple questions, you can just follow the quote code, and copy and paste questions…

here is an example, of the quote code.

  How Did you do that? 

this code will look like this. when posted.

So to add multiple questions, you can change the name of the poster, and change the words in between.

Also, thanks for the recipe. I’ve never tried curry, but I LOOOVE honey mustard!

My favorite barbecue chicken recipe:

Put 4-6 pieces of frozen chicken in a crockpot.
Thinly slice an onion and a lemon, and layer them on top of the chicken.
Mix a bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce and a can of Coke or Pepsi and pour over chicken.

Cook on high for 2-3 hours, I think…check the chicken to make sure it’s done. This chicken is a little tricky to get out of the crockpot, as it falls right off the bone!

Let me know how it taste, if you like it or not.

It is one thing for people to read it as a reciepe but to have the opinion is another…

easy ham:

place a ham in a crockpot.
add 2 cups of borwn sugar and two cans of pepsi (or coke).
cook for 2.5 hours and enjoy!

This is a really quick recipe. Marinate lightly pounded chicken breasts in an Italian salad dressing (I use Chef Drew’s Garlic and Herb and add grated parm and romano to it) for about and 2 hours (can be done over night) Cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for a 1/2 hour or until done. I like to serve this with Trader Joe’s Wild and Basmati rice pilaf.

If there’s leftover chicken I make wraps for lunch the next day. Dinner and lunch done.

:muah: :hug:
