Recipe Roundup: Cheesy Honey Mustard Chicken

unnamedMy quest to find delicious non-dry boneless, skinless chicken breast recipes continues. And I finally found one that is good enough to share. Also, with all things in the recipe department–I changed a few things. Enjoy!

Cheesy Honey Mustard Chicken
From Plain Chicken

Ingredients:
4 boneless chicken breast*
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp paprika
lemon pepper to taste
4 Tbsp bacon, cooked and chopped (I used Oscar Meyer bacon bits in the yellow bag)**
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

(Tara’s Tips: *So I didn’t use regular chicken breasts, I used thin sliced. Everything still turned out yummy, but I think regular thick cut chicken breasts would absorb more of the marinade because it makes so much. **That note next to the bacon is NOT my note. I have no idea what a yellow bag of bacon bits is. I fried up 4 slices of bacon and then chopped them up.)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Season chicken breasts with lemon pepper.  Place in 9×13 baking dish.
  • Combine honey, mustard, lemon juice and paprika.  Pour over chicken.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Top each chicken breast with 1 Tablespoon of bacon and 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.  Continue to bake until cheese is starting to brown (about 10 minutes).
