Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken

honey mustard chickenI’ve been eating lots of Thanksgiving leftovers the past few days and with the turkey nearly gone, I wanted to make something tasty to go with the remaining side dishes. This chicken is very easy to put together and has really good taste. I’ve also been craving something a bit hot after eating so much mild food.

16 oz chicken, fresh or thawed (can use strips or breasts)
1 cup honey
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper, to taste

In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard, paprika and cayenne. Cover the chicken with the honey mustard mixture and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.

    This looks fantastic! I love the bit of cayenne for a more grown up taste on this dish!
