Honey-Mustard Chicken Breasts

Submitted by: SOUTHERNMD

Introduction

Honey and mustard have become popular together over the years, and here they work their magic on boneless chicken breasts (4 - 6 oz each). It's hard to fit four chicken breasts in most skillets, but I do so, because it works so well to fry the breasts first to set the crusts and then bake them for a final crisping.
