One thing that helps me keep my head above water is keeping date night. Even if it’s at home.
Ingredients you will need to make this recipe
A great meal to make during a weeknight date night is this creamy lemon chicken…so delicious.
When life gets stressful – like it is about to be for us – I want to have simple, easy meals to cook for dinner.
It helps if it’s healthy, and this roasted honey mustard chicken recipe is perfect for a quick weeknight meal.
Roasted Honey Mustard Chicken
- 1 pound chicken breasts
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- 1 Tablespoon mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small bowl, mix together the honey and the mustard. Set aside.
- On an olive oil sprayed baking sheet, place the chicken breasts. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the chicken.
- Cover the chicken with the honey mustard sauce you made earlier. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
- Continue to coat the chicken with the honey mustard mixture as the chicken cooks. Some of it will run off of the chicken and you can easily use a spoon to add it back to the top of the breasts.
Thank you Christine! It is delicious and I may or may not have worked that chicken to make it look that pretty.
Wow, my chicken never comes out this pretty!
Buying a house is definitely stressful. Can’t wait to see the future digs 🙂
Thank you so much Mar! I am really excited for this, but gosh. Things are lasting only about a week before they become contingent. It’s insane. We will have to move REALLY fast to get something. That’s a bit nerve-raking. But it will be worth it. And this would be great on a grill! That’s a great option when it gets warmer outside.
I’m so excited for you to find your first house! We are currently in the condo phase as well. Houses are so expensive in Toronto! This recipe looks delish, and once I am ‘back on chicken’ (thanks pregnancy), this recipe would be great on the BBQ!
Thanks Anne! It’s so easy to make – trust me on that. And delicious!
So easy! Can’t wait to make this!
I’m hoping that everything will work out in the end…but right now it’s a little stressful. That’s great advice though and something I will try to remember.
I think it hasn’t sunk in yet that we are actually doing this (finally). Even with all the banging and drilling from today, I still can’t believe it. But it’s going to be worth it and so fun to actually look at houses and decide what we really want. I’m a firm believe that everything will happen for a reason and when it’s supposed to…I just have to keep reminding myself of this as the stress piles on!
I totally agree. I love date nights, even if it’s just catching dinner at our usual spot. It’s all about us, and I love them. So, our realtor added us to 2 new schools today at 8am…by 4pm, 3 of them were pending or contingent. It’s so insane how quickly things are moving. Good luck with grad schools! I can’t imagine how stressful that is!
I’m slightly addicted to honey mustard chicken! Try not to worry about things that aren’t real. You can only control what you know and you will have the ability to handle whatever is put in front of you!
Selling and buying is SO stressful – but try to focus on the fun of it! And I’m a firm believer that it will work how it’s supposed to (like it did with us!)
And this chicken? YUM.
Weekly date nights are awesome! Good luck on the house purchase. I am in the waiting process of hearing back from grad schools and with that, comes a big move! Will hear back from the first one on Friday and it’s finally hitting me that I’m going to be moving HOURS away come this summer.
