A quick and easy 30 minute meal that is packed with amazing honey dijon garlic flavor! The chicken is so juicy and tender and the sauce is sweet and tangy… you are going to love it!
I have been all about the quick and easy meals lately. I just hate eating out and Little Caesar’s is getting to know us on a first name basis. I love to cook but its just so dang busy around here. I made a goal for this month that we would only go out to dinner on Friday’s and I would cook the rest of the week. No matter how busy it was. This meal had all of the things that I loved packed inside and was ready in just 30 minutes.
Quick. Easy. Minimal Ingredients. Full of delicious flavor. Can’t get enough of it… this is my kind of meal!
Let me just break down all of the delicious ingredients for you. The honey dijon mustard combo was incredible. Not too sweet. And not to tangy. It was the perfect amount of both. But then you add garlic to it and it completes it perfectly. All of the flavors combine to bring you a meal that you won’t be able to get enough of. I love using a stone ground dijon mustard because it is more grainy and coarse. Of course you can use the traditional dijon mustard if you would like. But the flavor of this chicken was so excellent that you won’t want to change a thing!
This chicken turned out perfectly and I was seriously blown away by the flavor! The chicken was so tender and juicy and the flavor of this dish is phenomenal! As soon as you try it I think that you will agree! 🙂
