Simply De-Lite-Ful: Honey Salsa Chicken
Honey Salsa Chicken
Sweet honey, punchy salsa, and tangy mustard fall into perfect place as a sauce for baking chicken. This is a definite family favorite with both children and adults. Try over rice one night and shred leftovers for burritos or fajitas the next.
This can be prepared to this point a day or morning ahead, covered and refrigerated, and popped into the oven uncovered, 45 min before serving.
Optional serving garnishes:
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
In small bowl mix flour and salt. Dredge chicken pieces in flour mixture to coat completely. Discard remaining flour mixture.
In medium bowl mix salsa, mustard, brown sugar, and honey.
Arrange chicken breasts in bottom of baking dish and pour salsa mixture over.
Bake 45 minutes or until cooked through.
Serve chicken topped with pan sauce over rice with what garnishes you prefer.
