Spicy and Flavorful…  AND it Smells amazing as it bakes.

It doesn’t get much simpler than this one. But don’t let the simplicity of this recipe fool you…This chicken is moist and full of  flavor.  Boneless chicken breasts are baked with a delicious mixture of honey, Dijon mustard, and curry powder, for a super-easy everyday meal.  The curry adds dimension to boring everyday baked chicken.  Prep time is under 15 minutes.  Then bake and  enjoy with any side vegetable for a high protein, low fat, low carbohydrate supper.

—————————————

3-4 boneless chicken breasts, split into cutlets.  (About 2-2 1/2 lbs. )

Simple Marinade... makes for a flavorful twist on everyday baked chicken

In a small bowl mix together the following:

  • Equal parts (about 1/3 cup) Dijon Mustard and honey,
  • ~1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1-2 Tbsp Curry Powder (more if you like it spicy)
  • Garlic Powder, Black Pepper (or garlic pepper)
  • Dash Cayenne Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray a large baking pan with non-stick Olive Oil spray.  Place chicken pieces in single layer in pan. Brush liberally with herb marinade on both sides.  If you have time, let the chicken marinate for an hour or more before baking.
Place in 375 degree oven for 40-50 minutes, turning the chicken  and basting again halfway through.  Actual cooking time will depend on the thickness of your cutlets.

For variety, grill cutlets instead of bake

If you are not on a carbohydrate restricted meal plan, this pairs well with basmati or jasmine rice.
