Equipment

  • Sauce pan
  • Baking pan

Ingredients
  

  • 2 chicken breasts trimmed
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 Cup honey
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mistard
  • To taste salt
  • To taste Black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place on baking sheet that just fits the size of the chicken (to avoid burning sauce later).
  • Combine butter and garlic in sauce pan over low heat and cook until garlic is fragrant, but not browned. Add Dijon mistard and honey and cook until sauce is simmering, or slightly thickened.
  • Pour sauce over chicken breasts and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven, flip, and cook for another 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Don’t forget to flip the chicken half way through!
  • If you don’t have honey on hand, replace with maple syrup, sugar, or even molasses.
  • If you don’t have dijon mustard on hand, replace with brown or yellow mustard. You could even try making homemade Dijon mustard to make this elevate this recipe!
