Caramelized Honey Dijon Chicken

I first saw this recipe on pinterest and instantly knew I had to make it. With a name like caramelized honey dijon chicken, how could I not? Since the recipe calls for honey, I thought it was the perfect time to try J.M. & Emma Reynaga’s locally made honey. Emma, a long time and fantastic employee of David’s, and her husband have their own pollination business, so we’re always excited when we receive a new batch for The Crate.

Below are a few photos of my cooking adventure and the ingredients and instructions as posted by How Sweet It Is:

makes 4 chicken breasts

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1-2 tablespoons spicy mustard (I used Trader Joe’s Sweet + Hot)
salt & pepper

Heat a skillet on medium high heat and add olive oil. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel so it is very, very dry. Season with salt and pepper generously. Add chicken to skillet and brown on both sides, about 6-8 minutes each, depending on the thickness.

In a bowl, combine honey and both mustards. Whisk well.

Remove chicken and while it is still hot, brush on mustard.  Serve!
