Cheesy Honey Mustard Chicken

Cheesy Honey Mustard ChickenI’m always on the lookout for new (and easy) chicken recipes, and this one is now high on our list- the chicken is so moist and flavorful. It was cooler out so I baked it in the oven, but you could also marinade it put it on the grill, brushing extra sauce on it as it cooks. -DELIGHTFUL!- 🙂 My husband is a big honey mustard fan (and who doesn’t love cheese)- so he’s a big advocate of this.

I served this chicken with roasted potatoes an green beans (string beans? green beans? which one is it by the way?)- the options are pretty much endless though. You could try this with Potatoes Ah Gratin, browned butter mashed potatoes, a nice salad, maybe some rice… anythaaaang.

It’s a pretty common thing to dip chicken tenders in honey mustard so I’m suprised I didn’t try this cheesy honey mustard chicken sooner! Sheeeeeez.

By the way, this chicken is topped with bacon.

You can’t see it that well in the picture, (bad Steph! bad!)- but it’s there. And when you top already savory, honey mustard chicken with not only cheese, but with bacon, I just don’t know that I need to say that much more.  😯
