Honey Dijon Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by PaulaG

I usually buy chicken breasts from those wholesale places. They are packed boneless, skinless and frozen. The other night I had no idea what to do for dinner and found a delightful recipe on the bag of chicken breasts. This recipe does not require that the chicken be defrosted, it requires minimal work and the chicken came out moist and juicy.

Very simple, very fast and super tasty! There is a lot of flavor on this chicken! Subbed lemon juice for lemons and a blackening spice for the paprika. Added a little chili paste to the sauce at the end for some extra heat. Really enjoyed this alongside steamed broccoli and a low fat/skim scalloped potato dish. Very nice, thank you for posting.
