  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (3-4 medium sized breasts)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 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.
