Easy Delicious Weeknight Baked Chicken Dinner

Just a couple weeks ago Josh- the hubs- started a brand new job (yay!). Now I’m far from a 1950’s wife but I do know that everyday when he comes home he is going to be hungry! So I do my best to at least have dinner started by the time he gets home. There’s nothing better than coming home to a house that smells like dinner, anyway, right?? The other day I lost track of time a bit and didn’t get this dinner started till late but it was so easy to make that it actually seemed like I had planned ahead and started early, ha!

I used this fun mustard that we found while perusing the grocery aisles one day. Well, Josh was perusing, I take my grocery shopping very seriously. See how to get in and out of the grocery store in half the time! Anyway. Josh is a fan of sauces, and he found this beauty mixed in with the rest of the condiments. Any type of mustard can be used in this recipe but this one was great because it had a bit of a german bite to it along with a hint of bacon that tasted amazing atop the chicken breasts we had for dinner that night. If you need a quick, clean-eating, weeknight dinner fix, this baked chicken recipe will hit the spot!

I loved how fast this weeknight recipes was. In fact, to make it even faster for the future, I made a bit extra of the mixture and froze it for next time! Happy cooking!

    This recipe does look delicious. That’s some pretty impressive mustard too; might have to look for some of that for spicing up other things.
