Weeknight Dinner Idea: Honey Baked Chicken

Hey folks! Ever since I moved out of my parents house in the winter of 2012, I’ve learned to appreciate the art of economical cooking, both time-wise and money-wise. Some weeks you just don’t want to spend money on a carload at the grocery store so you pick meals with a few simple ingredients, and other weeks you just don’t have the time to cook, so you choose meals that are quick to throw together. Well, here’s one that is easy on both your budget and your clock! I present: Honey Baked Chicken!

Honey Baked Chicken

OK, so it’s not really a new concept, you can find tons of recipes if you just put that phrase into any search engine. But now that you’re here and reading this, I’ll give you the recipe to save you the time of searching for it elsewhere! 🙂

It’s super easy, I promise. You lay out your chicken, mix together the other ingredients and pour it over top, bake, and voila! Roughly 30 minutes later you’ve got your meal ready to go. I served this chicken with rice and peas, so as soon as the chicken went into the oven I started the rice cooking in my rice cooker and made the peas just before the chicken was done, so everything was ready at the same time. I also highly recommend drizzling the resulting honey mustard sauce from the chicken over both the chicken and the rice. So yummy! Enjoy the easy meal everyone and let me know in the comments below what you think!
