If you need a dinner that is full of flavor but requires next to no effort – then you want to have Honey Mustard Chicken! This is a recipe straight out of the Homemade on a Weeknight cookbook. And it may just be the easiest one in there!
Simple and Delicious are the best words to describe this dish – and it really is all in the marinade. An easy baked chicken breast will almost always win dinnertime – and the honey and yellow mustard marinade will bring it to life. If you end up with any chicken leftover – it makes for a great salad the next day!
Some days you just need something that is so quick and requires very little attention from you. This is that recipe – you will see in the recipe card below that there is only a few ingredients and 3 very short steps. If you wanted to change it up and use Dijon or Spicy Brown Mustard instead of Yellow mustard – it would give the chicken a bit of zing! but still be good.
To round out this meal you will need a side dish or two. You could do some Roasted Potatoes & Cauliflower (recipe can be found in the Homemade on a Weeknight Cookbook) or you could try a Side Dish Recipes that I have featured right here on the Blog like Citrus & Herb Whipped Cauliflower or Cheesy Rice & Broccoli. You could also do a green salad and some green beans on the side to keep it super simple!
