Honey Dijon Garlic Chicken Breasts

Ingredients
  1. 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts about 6 ounces each
  2. 3 tbsp butter
  3. 6 cloves minced garlic
  4. pinch salt and pepper
  5. 1/3 cup honey
  6. 2 tbsp whole grain Dijon mustard

Instructions
  • Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Use a baking pan that is large enough to have a half inch of space around each chicken breast but no more. Using too large a baking dish can cause the glaze to be too shallow in the pan and burn easily. Place the empty pan in a 425 degree oven to heat up while you prepare the glaze.
To prepare the glaze
  • Melt the butter in a small saute pan. Add the garlic and cook for only 30-60 seconds to soften it. Do not brown the garlic.
  • Add the honey, Dijon mustard and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir well to blend and simmer over medium heat for one or two minutes begin to reduce the glaze.
  • Lightly season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Remove the hot pan from the oven and place the chicken breasts an equal distance apart in the pan. Pour the hot glaze evenly over the chicken.
