Honey Curried Chicken

There’s a reason to celebrate in September! No, it just isn’t the fact that the kids are back in school, but something equally as exciting. It’s National Chicken Month. Who is ready to celebrate our hardworking chicken farmers for all they do?

Did you know that chicken is Canada’s #1 protein choice? I can’t say I’m surprised. There is so much to love about Canadian chicken. It’s tasty, versatile in recipes and has lots of health benefits. We eat chicken a few times a week. If you are familiar with my blog, you already know I share a ton of chicken recipes (including one today for Honey Curried Chicken!).

    Today, I want to share with you this delicious chicken recipe and also some information about chicken farming in Canada.

    Chicken Farming in Canada

    Let’s first look at chicken farming in Canada. One of the big reasons I love Canadian chicken is the fact that they have such high quality standards from coast to coast. Chicken Farmers in Canada follow the auditable Raised by a Canadian Farmer Animal Care Program and On-Farm Food Safety Program. When you see the mark, Raised by a Canadian Farmer, on your package of chicken, you can rest assured you are getting the best of the best.

    Chicken farming makes a big impact on the Canadian economy. There are 2,803 chicken farmers and 191 processors in Canada. They all create jobs for Canadians – 87,200 jobs, to be specific.

    As for the GDP, chicken farmers contribute $6.8 billion. They also pay $2.2 billion in taxes. That’s a lot of money going back into our economy. Chicken farming makes a big impact on Canada.

    Not only do they contribute financially, but they also support communities. They make regular donations to food banks and support Canadian swimmers through their partnership with Swimming Canada.

    Chicken farming runs on a stable supply management system. This allows the chicken farmers to generate a steady supply of fresh, high-quality Canadian chicken at reasonable prices. It also means that 90% of farms are family owned and operated.

    You may have also noticed that the prices of chicken don’t rise as quickly as the prices of competing proteins. For instance, from 2013 to 2017, the price of chicken only rose 3.5% while beef and pork (non-supply managed sectors) prices rose 32.2% and 13.6%, respectively.

    So as you can see there is lots to celebrate this month! Hooray for Canadian chicken and Canadian chicken farmers!

    We are big fans of Honey Curried Chicken. I use Canadian Chicken (always!) and create a deliciously sweet/savoury sauce that will leave your family begging for more. This is a vintage recipe that people have been making for years and I’m excited to share it with you today.

    All you’ll need is four boneless, skinless chicken breasts, honey, butter, mustard and curry powder. I also added a little parsley for garnish, but you could leave that off.

    It’s the perfect meal served with some fresh bread and a side salad. Dinner is served in under an hour.

    1. Can’t wait to try this one Stacie. I bet the honey compliments the curry beautifully and it looks scrumptious

    2. Shirley Tucker says:

      What type of mustard did you use?

    3. This was my favorite meal growing up. I always requested it for my birthday dinner. I make it all of the time and have never seen or heard of anyone else who served this at home. It makes me happy to see it. My family recipe is exactly the same except for the butter. I will have to try it with it. I bet that it is yummy!
      But, if anyone is interested it turns out great without it. We usually serve ours with mashed potatoes and veggies. Thanks for making smile this morning!
