We’re big fans of chicken around here. Not only is chicken leaner in fat and an excellent source of protein, it goes well with almost every flavoring you can think of. From salads, stews, roasts to soups, it’s a versatile canvas for all your meal inspirations.

Tips on How to Make Honey Mustard Chicken
- Pound the chicken with a mallet to a uniform thickness to ensure even cooking.
- Please don’t skip the olive oil in the marinade. Chicken breasts are very lean and a drizzle of fat will help keep them moist and flavorful.
- Baking the chicken at 350 F often results to dry texture as before the top even caramelizes nicely, the chicken is already overdone. Instead, cook on high heat (450) for a shorter period of time for juicier meat! If the sauce is browning too fast, loosely tent the baking dish with foil.
- Let the chicken rest for about 3 to 5 minutes before slicing to allow juices to redistribute.

- In a bowl, combine honey, Dijon mustard, and olive oil. Whisk together until blended.
- Dip chicken breasts in the mixture to fully coat.
- Arrange chicken n a single layer on a lightly greased baking dish and bake in a 450 F oven for about 15 to 20 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the center reads 165 F. If the top is browning before chicken is cooked through, lightly tent with foil.
- Remove from heat and allow to stand for about 3 to 5 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.
