Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts


This is a lighter chicken recipe, so there is no oil in the marinade. It’s just flavor without the fat. We love our Ritz Cracker Chicken. It’s all buttery and wonderful. But sometimes it’s just nice to make a chicken recipe like these Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts that’s a little more healthy!

How to make Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts:

Combine the marinade ingredients in a large zip baggie. It’s a mix of white wine, stone ground mustard, honey, water and white vinegar. There is no oil in sight!

Add the chicken to the bag, seal the bag, and move the chicken all around to coat with the marinade. Chill the marinating chicken anywhere from 4 to 12 hours. This is one of those recipes where I like to marinate the chicken one day and finish up the recipe the next day.

Place the marinated chicken breasts in a baking dish. Drizzle them with a little more of the marinade. Wrap the baking dish with foil, and bake for about 30 minutes.
