Baked Mustard Chicken

Baked Mustard Chicken

I know what you’re thinking.

Why on earth am I posting a chicken recipe the day before most of the nation gorges themselves on turkey and sides?  Aren’t we going to eat enough protein tomorrow to last us the rest of the year?

Well, yes.  But the answer is because I want to, because this chicken dish is RI-DIC-U-LOUS in how easy it is, and the flavor is off the charts.  Capiche?

P.S. I just feel like I need to confess that tomorrow I’m making mashed potatoes ( Pioneer Woman’s because it’s not a holiday without extra butter and cream cheese) and a sassy little dessert that I’m going to share with y’all later.  I’m probably going to go on a long hike with Nate and the pups and then do a batshit crazy (gasp!  it’s ok – batshit is just a funny word) lower body strength workout.  I feel like if I feel sore I can justify eating more.  Then we’re going to go to celebrate with some of our amazing friends, eat double our weight in food, watch football and probably fall asleep.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard (this would also be fun to use half whole-grain mustard too!)
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (I used fresh, panko would be great too though, or regular breadcrumbs)
