Servings: 5 people
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (3-4 medium sized breasts)
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
- Fresh minced parsley optional, for garnish
Honey Mustard Sauce:
- 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 garlic cloves finely minced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine honey mustard sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Place chicken breasts in a large ziploc bag or between two pieces of plastic wrap and lightly pound until they are of even thickness.
Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken breasts in the dish side by side. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Brush sauce evenly on top of the chicken sauce on top of the chicken (use more or less to your taste).
Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and registers 165 degrees on a meat thermometer. (Depending on the thickness of the meat, this could take a few minutes longer).
Let stand for 5 minutes, then serve garnished with freshly minced parsley if desired.
