Who doesn’t love honey mustard? It’s sweet, it’s tangy…it’s delicious. When you bake it with the chicken, it absorbs the flavors and makes for a juicy, succulent dinner!
The great thing about this recipe is you get to make your own honey mustard and it is really almost as simple as just pouring a bottle of pre-made honey mustard onto the chicken.
This is a great weeknight dinner when you want something that’s easy to prepare with not a lot of clean up (a baking dish, a small bowl, and a brush to cover the chicken with the sauce is all you need).
Plus, it’s done in ~40 minutes. The perfect amount of time when you’re tired from a long day at work or school.
Baked Honey Mustard Chicken
Prep: 15 minutes. Cook: 45 minutes. Serves 6.
– 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
– salt and pepper to taste
– 1/2 cup honey
– 1/2 cup prepared mustard
– 1 teaspoon dried basil
– 1 teaspoon paprika
– 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the honey, mustard, basil, paprika, and parsley. Mix well. Pour 1/2 of this mixture over the chicken, and brush to cover.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Turn chicken pieces over and brush with remaining 1/2 of the honey mustard mixture. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
