Scale

  • 1 cup honey mustard marinade (see note #1)
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2/3 cup shredded pepperjack cheese, divided
  • 1 recipe for easy pico de gallo
  • For serving: fresh avocado, roasted potato or chips

Instructions

  • Add chicken breasts to a ziploc bag with honey mustard and allow to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil over the foil and lay marinated chicken onto it, sprinkling with salt and pepper
  • Bake for 30 minutes then remove chicken and cover each breast with the pepperjack cheese
  • Place back in the oven and bake for a final 5 minutes (or until chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees F)
  • Remove, top each breast with fresh pico de gallo and serve with avocado, roasted potatoes or chips


Notes

  • To make your own honey mustard marinade, simply combine 1/2 cup mustard (any kind you prefer will work!) with 1/2 cup honey, 3-4 tablespoons olive oil, 1 minced garlic clove (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder), salt & pepper together in a food processor or blender and blend (if using garlic powder, you can simply whisk with a fork).
  • You can also choose to grill the chicken which will cut down on time.  For grilling, over medium heat, grill 4-6 minutes per side or until chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
