How many different recipes do you have for baked chicken? For some reason it is a such an easy/great go-to dinner. So let me add to the plethora with this divine honey mustard chicken. It's quick, it's easy, and come on, how can you not get excited for only 5 ingredients!
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. black pepper
4 chicken breast halves
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and put your chicken breasts in it.
Mix together butter, honey, Dijon mustard and pepper.
Pour it over your chicken (ok, so I forgot to take the pic until after it was in the oven...not so attractive).
Put your chicken in the oven and bake it for 45 minutes. While it is baking, spoon the sauce over the chicken about every 5 minutes (or use a baster). Don't worry, I only burned myself twice.
You can serve this over noodles and rice if you want, but we just had it plain with a side of corn.
I made this last night and LOVED it. Tonight for leftovers, I sliced up the chicken, mixed it in the leftover honey mustard sauce, loaded it between two slices of wheat bread with a slice of provolone cheese, slathered it up with buttered and cooked it on the griddle to perfection. It was delicious. It would also be good served cold over a salad. So many options...that's the beauty of chicken.
