Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

I don’t have a Jeffery, but like Ina Garten, I too am constantly looking for new ways for chicken. Chicken is unbelievably versatile and takes on almost every flavour extremely well. Here I’m doing a honey mustard marinade that requires little marinating time, and I’m baking it in the oven to intensify the flavours. This is a simple dish that would go well with rice/potatoes and pasta.

Serves 2


  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp of wholegrain mustard
  • 1 crushed/grated clove garlic
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Some fresh thyme leaves


    1. Make slits in the chicken at regular intervals.
    2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a zippo bag and add the chicken breasts
    3. Allow to marinade for 20 minutes minimium
    4. Place the chicken on a lined baking tray and bake in a preheated oven (200 degrees) for 20-30 minutes, turning halfway through.

The result should be a sweet, smoky flavour with some heat kicking in from the mustard. A great midweek supper, just add your carb and veggies.Yummy!
