It's yummy. It's easy. And it makes for an easy dinner to get on the table during a busy night. Serve it with some brown rice and steamed broccoli. I found recipes similar to this online, and then made it my own.

Honey Mustard Chicken
¼ cup mustard (any kind will do. I used plain old yellow mustard because, for some reason, I have about four bottles of it in the refrigerator.)
⅓ cup honey
2 to 3 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken (thighs or breasts)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Fresh herbs such as rosemary, thyme, tarragon or parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Place your chicken in the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and about a tablespoon of olive oil.

In a small bowl, mix together the mustard and honey. (Pro tip: Before measuring out the honey and mustard, spray a little non-stick spray in the measuring cups. The sticky honey and goopy mustard will slide right out.) Pour the mixture over the chicken. Top with some fresh herbs if you have any on hand. We have a big rosemary bush in our yard, so I went with that.

If you're using chicken thighs, bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Breasts will take 30 to 40 minutes. They are done when they've reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Here's how it went for me ...
