Baked Chicken with Thyme and Dijon

Are you in need of a quick chicken dinner? Well, today is your lucky day. Not only is it chicken, but it is chicken breasts. You could totally do chicken thighs, but I think it is hard to find good recipes for breasts to keep them from being dry. I’d rather save my chicken thighs for more finicky dishes, like a stir fry. This is also allergy-friendly since I first made this when the Chiplet couldn’t have any nuts at all, and I like that I can use a butter substitute if dairy is an issue.

Mustard Chicken

What is wrong with me? I am again posting a week of savory posts! Apparently I need to get back into the kitchen and do some more baking! Well, truthfully, I have not been baking because I was trying to finish all of the goodies we had before leaving for Hawaii, and then did not make baking my go-to chore when we came back (sorry?). Maybe I will share some pictures of the fancy food from there and let you enjoy that? Right now I am trying to think about what treats I would like to make next. I promised K that when we returned I would make some more ice cream. We have two ice cream containers, and when one is finished, it is expected to get filled again quickly. I like making new flavors, but I kind of want more Chocolate with a  Peanut Butter Swirl….I also have some thoughts on making something with a Biscoff-spread. It’s all the rage these days and I picked one up at a discount store. I also like these PB&J Cupcakes from Candid Appetite. I like that it would get me to make some jelly for the first time ever, and it seems not super scary.

Well, after that paragraph of sweets, here is the real meat of this post! Mustard Chicken! All over Pinterest, you can find recipes for man-pleasing chicken, the best chicken in the world, blah blah blah. I can tell you that I have made a version of this chicken before, and I started making it in college when I still had trouble baking brownies from a box mix. (I still am not really good with box mixes…I don’t know why, but they always seem to burn for me!) Putting mustard with chicken is a no-brainer, as far as I am concerned. It tastes good on a sandwich, so why not in a hot form? Of course, we get to dress it up a bit since it’s for supper, but the basic concept is still there. Chicken. And mustard.
