Cheesy Honey Mustard Chicken

Cheesy Honey Mustard Chicken

Doesn't that title just make your mouth water? Simple ingredients with delicious results!

The only changes I would make to this recipe is omit all the lemon ingredients and add lots of fresh garlic instead! After tasting this chicken I just thought the lemon wasn't needed and actually detracted from the taste of the honey and mustard. And next time I will use cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella because the mozz was too mild to stand up to all that mustard.  I also would use less ingredients for the sauce because I had way too much extra sauce in the pan when the chicken was done baking. The bacon bits gave it a nice smokiness! A very tasty meal that I will definitely make again! I served this with oven fries and Italian green beans.

I found this recipe on a blog called Plain Chicken I'm writing it with my suggestions in red.

Cheesy Honey Mustard Chicken
Cheesy Honey Mustard Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup honey - I would use 1/2 cup
1/2 cup Dijon mustard - I would use 1/4 cup
1 tsp. lemon juice - I would omit this
2 cloves of minced garlic
Lemon pepper - I would use plain black pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
4 Tbls. bacon bits - I used Oscar Meyer bagged bacon bits
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese - I would used sharp cheddar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Season chicken breasts with lemon pepper (or plain black pepper)
 and place in a 9x13" baking dish.
In a small bowl combine the honey, mustard, garlic, lemon juice (if using) and paprika.
Pour mixture over chicken and bake for 25 minutes.
Top each chicken breast with 1 Tbls. of bacon bits and 1/4 cup shredded cheese.
Bake for 10 more minutes or until cheese is slightly browned.
Serve warm with pan juices.

    Greetings from Athens, Greece!
    I love your blog and the recipes you share with us!
    Thank you!!
    I'll be trying the Cheesy Honey Mustard Chicken tomorrow for lunch! It looks delicious!

  4. I made this for dinner and it was a big hit with everyone, including my 1 year old! I served mashed potatoes on the side to soak up all the yummy sauce!

    1. I'm so glad you tried it and liked it! Yum...mashed potatoes is a great idea with this! Thank you so much for coming back to let me know! That is always very appreciated! =D

  5. I've used this one several times and love it. The only think I do different is pan sear my chicken breast in garlic and olive oil before baking. I like my breasts brown :)

    1. Thanks Marisa...I like that idea also! I'll try that too! =D
