I am a collector of recipes for most of my life. Now I am trying to collect recipes that are healthier and lower in calorie. Of course, I still want good taste. Sometimes that is a tough combination. I will try most any recipe once.

Light Mustard Honey Chicken - Baked

This dish is easy to prepare - mix all ingredients (and salt and/or pepper to taste) and marinate with chicken for 10 minutes up to 24 hours before (refrigerate if marinating more than 20 minutes). For Honey, note that 1 tbsp = 3 tsp (i.e. 2/3 tbsp = 2 tsp). Feel free to substitute seasonings to taste.

Recommend preparing this for a family or, for multiple meals to be used in salads, with pasta, veggies and more.Submitted by ZANNERQ
