Baked Dijon Chicken

How we loved this quick chicken dish!  As a mom with two little ones under feet, I love being able to quickly pull together a dinner.  Mix together the mustard sauce, pour over chicken, throw in oven.  Ad some quick steamed veggies and we're good to go!  Easy clean up too. 

For this recipe, (and many others lately) I cut the chicken breast in half--butterfly style.  This helps if they're partially frozen, and you have a VERY sharp knife.  I use a ceramic one, which I LOVE.  Cut them in half with your blade parallel to the cutting board.  Cut them all the way through so you have 2 skinny pieces.

Adapated from: Skinny Taste
  • 2 chicken breasts--butterflied to make 4 skinny ones
  • 3 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp mayo
  • 1/2 tsp crushed garlic (1 clove)
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • salt
  • dried parsley
Preheat oven to 400degs.  Sprinkle the chicken with some salt and pepper.  Mix together the mustard, mayo, garlic, lime juice, and pepper.  Arrange chicken in a pan, spoon some of the mixture on the chicken.  Flip and spoon the rest over the chicken.  Bake for about 30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
