Easy Overnight Chicken

This has got to be the easiest chicken dish I’ve ever made.  Really.  And I almost always have the ingredients on hand.  If you’re not a fan of curry, don’t worry.  The sauce isn’t really strong on curry flavor.  It is wonderfully flavorful though, and goes well with both rice and mashed potatoes.

The hardest thing about this recipe is remembering to throw it together the night before.  But even if you started the morning of, it would probably still turn out wonderfully.  Either way, when dinner time rolls around, all you have to do is put this in the oven and you’ll have a hearty, delicious week night meal on the table with a minimum of effort.  Which makes this recipe a winner in my book!

  1. Hope it is okay that I pinned this to my pinterest! It looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Danelle

    Did you use bone-in chicken or skinless chicken breast in this recipe.

  3. Not a fan of curry – any suggested substitute?

  4. At the end of the recipe after the chicken is cooked you say to slice and top with some of the remaining sauce. Is that a good idea after the raw chicken has soaked overnight in this? I really don’t think so!

    • Donna, you place the marinade in with the chicken when you bake it. The “remaining sauce” is the sauce remaining in the pan after you’ve baked the chicken, not uncooked sauce that had raw chicken in it.
