How to make Baked Honey Mustard Chicken
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F. Using cooking spray, lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Set aside.
Step 2: In a skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oil. In the meantime, season all sides of the chicken breasts with a chicken seasoning blend. To the hot skillet, add the chicken breasts and sear for about 2 minutes per side until browned.
Step 3: To make the honey mustard sauce: In a small mixing bowl, place 1/2 tbsp olive oil, honey, mustards, white vinegar, and paprika. Mix well until blended.
Step 4: To the prepared baking dish, transfer the cooked chicken breasts and pour the honey mustard sauce on top. Flip the chicken until all sides are covered. Between the chicken breasts, lay the sprigs of rosemary. Tent the dish with foil and place it in the preheated oven. Bake for about 20 minutes.
Step 5:Remove the foil and continue to bake for another 15 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked. Note that the cooking time of the chicken varies depending on the size/thickness of the chicken.
Step 6: Take the dish out of the oven when done and allow the chicken to stand for about 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
