My 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
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.)
- 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).
