Honey Mustard Chicken




Okay, so I discovered this recipe on allrecipes.com and was so excited because my entire family LOVES it! The only thing I do differently is add some garlic powder. At first I was a little nervous to have the honey and basil combo because I had never tried it, but  they really do well together! The chicken is really tender and moist and when I serve them with mashed potatoes, I actually like to add the honey mustard over my potatoes. This is great as leftovers too!


Ingredients

  • 1 to 1 1/2 lbs., boneless chicken breast halves, trimmed
  • salt and pepper and garlic powder, to taste
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley


  • Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F




2. Next, sprinkle chicken breasts with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste, and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.

3.  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.



4.Next, bake for 30 minutes, uncovered Turn the chicken pieces over and brush with the remaining 1/2 of the honey mustard mixture. Bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
I love to serve this with a side of steamed broccoli or green beans and garlic cheddar mashed potatoes. The green beans are actually pretty amazing in the sauce as well. Sooo delicious! And a kid pleaser!
