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.
- 2 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
- 4 thin lemon slices
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon curry powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line a 13 x 9 inch baking pan with foil; spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray.
- Rinse the frozen chicken pieces under lukewarm water to remove the ice glaze, pat dry.
- Place chicken on prepared foil pan and sprinkle with paprika, top with lemon slices.
- Place in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by placing remaining ingredients in a small microwave safe bowl and mixing thoroughly.
- Prior to spooning over chicken, microwave sauce for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through.
- After the breasts have baked for 30 minutes, drain and discard juices from baking pan.
- Remove the lemon slices and spoon the heated sauce over the chicken.
- Return to oven and continue baking for 1o to 15 minutes or until juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
- Serve immediately.
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.
This was really good. I only had chicken breasts with skin on them and they worked well still. I left the paprika off mine and if was still fantastic. DH said his was spot on too :) Easy to make great if you forget to take something out of the freezer for dinner. I will be making this one heaps as i alway forget to take stuff out of the freezer in the morning. thank heaps. Made for RECIPE SWAP #30 - July 2009
