Curry-Cajun Spiced Chicken

1/3 cup honey
3 tablespoon water
3 tablespoon prepared mustard
2 tablespoon margarine or butter, melted
2 - 3 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
2 - 3 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
6 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/4 pounds)
3 cups hot cooked rice

In a 3-quart rectangular baking dish combine honey, water, mustard, melted margarine or butter, Cajun seasoning, curry powder, lemon juice, and garlic; mix well.

Add chicken breast halves, turning to coat. Arrange in a single layer.

Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven about 30 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink.

Serve chicken and pan drippings with hot cooked rice.

Make-Ahead Tip: Combine honey mixture; cover and chill up to 24 hours.
