Monday Moments - I hope you'll settle for a recipe...

I have no thoughts today...I've sat down to the computer 4 different times trying to come up with something to write, something to say...and I think, I think, and...nothing. It's just a blah Monday. I should have just spent the time napping. Recovering from having a house full of people for the weekend after one crazy week of work and Now my husband wants to go camping this weekend, and while I think it would be fun, there's a part of me that just wants a Saturday to sleep in. But I guess I got a whole winter of sleeping to do. We might as well play, while the playing is still warm outside.

As for the recipe below. This was my first time making it and I thought it was yummolicious. Next time I will replace the first 4 T. of butter with olive oil and omit the butter entirely from the honey/lemon/curry sauce. I think it would be fine without it and it would be much healthier. That's just what I would do. I left the recipe as is, so you can choose.

(Recipe from Tabatha Fergus)

½ C. flour
1 t. salt
½ t. cayenne pepper
¼ C. packed brown sugar
1 ½ t. curry powder
½ C. butter, melted, divided
¼ C. honey
¼ C. lemon juice
1 T. soy sauce
About 3 lb. chicken, cut into tenders

1. In a bowl or bag, combine flour, salt and cayenne pepper; add chicken pieces and dredge or shake to coat.
2. Pour 4 T. melted butter into a 9x13 baking pan.
3. Place chicken in pan, turning pieces once to coat.
4. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
5. Combine brown sugar, honey, lemon juice, soy sauce, curry powder and remaining butter; pour over chicken.
6. Continue to bake for 45 minutes or until chicken is tender; basting several times with pan drippings.
7. Serves 4-6 people.
