I get sick of eating the same thing all the time and am always looking for new ways to spice up my go-to dinner recipes. I eat A LOT of chicken and thought this recipe would help change things up a bit. This is an easy recipe to make with little prep time. The marinade keeps the chicken super moist and flavorful. However, if I were to make this again, I think I would use a bit more mustard and a less honey; it was a bit too sweet for me.
- 1 ½ lbs. uncooked, boneless, skinless chicken breast (I used chicken tenders)
- 2 tbsp. honey
- ¼ cup stone ground mustard
- ¼ cup beer (I used Erdinger Oktoberfest)
- 1 tbsp. dried basil
- 1 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1 ½ tbsp. fresh-squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon)
- Preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit.
- Rinse and pat dry chicken breasts.
- Season them with sea salt and pepper and place in baking dish.
- In a small bowl, stir together honey, mustard, beer, lemon juice, basil and smoked paprika.
- Pour marinade over chicken and flip over to make sure it is coated well.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes, turning halfway through. (Make sure the internal temperature of you chicken is at least 165° Farenheight or slice into the thickest part of the chicken to make sure there is no pink flesh.)
