Chicken Breasts With Lavender and Honey Glaze

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

From The original recipe did not specify the type of mustard so I chose Dijon. A grainy brown mustard would probably work well in this chicken dish.

A pretty entree. I used skinless breast, and the glaze came out a lovely golden pink. For me, this was too sweet. The only taste was the honey, not the mustard or lavender. (I used wildflower honey, not a strongly flavored one.) It is an easy dish, scalable down to one or up to a dinner party, and good as leftovers, so I might try again to better balance the flavors..
