Chicken with Honey and Mustard Sauce



This chicken has rich flavors. It's sweet because of the honey and also sharp and pungent because of the mustard. The soy sauce brings a pleasant savory taste and the mayonnaise blends it all together harmoniously. 


 
What You Need:
  • 6 thin chicken fillets (about 1lb) If the fillets are thick slice them in half lengthwise.
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (I use light mayo)
  • butter to coat a baking dish

What To Do:
Prepare the chicken:




If the chicken fillets are thick

cut them until they are all less than 1/2 inch thick.






Wash the fillets under running water.










Pat dry the fillets using paper towels.










Gather all ingredients along with the fillets.
Preheat oven to 350F







Coat a baking dish with butter.






Place the fillets in the baking dish.

Poke them with a fork several times.
The fillets do not need to be on a single layer.


 





Mix honey, soy sauce and mustard in a small bowl.









Pour it in the baking dish with the chicken fillets.







Make sure all the fillets are covered with the sauce, so flip them with a fork.







Cover with foil.

Place the chicken covered in the oven for 20 min.







Put the water and mayonnaise in a small saucepan and reserve.




Remove the chicken from the oven. It will not look very appealing but don't worry.

Remove the foil but don't throw it away.
Take most of the sauce from the baking pan and put it in the small saucepan with the water and mayonnaise.






You will be able to take almost all of the sauce if you tilt the baking dish.








Put the foil back on the chicken while you prepare the sauce to keep it warm.







Over medium heat stir the sauce. 

The mayonnaise will be separated but once the the sauce boils it will dissolve, so don't worry.






After it boils keep stirring until the sauce thickens. About 4-5 minutes.






The sauce will be thicker and smooth. As you can see the mayonnaise incorporated to the sauce.








Pour the sauce over the chicken.






Yum!






Serve it with brown or white rice and steamed carrots. 

The sauce from the chicken has a rich flavor so I don't think it is necessary to salt the carrots.

Bon Appétit!


All those flavors were great to enjoy together with the amazing sunset from my little veranda.
