What about this one? It was on another thread. I printed it out to try as soon as I get some honey. It looks good and simple.

Here you go!
Baked Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts

courtesy of Nodakgal

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup prepared mustard
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

In a small bowl combine the honey, mustard, basil, paprika and parsley. Mix well. Pour 1/2 of this mixture over the chicken and brush to cover. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Here's what I do with chicken breasts -

Brown a little in oil. Add mushroom soup (or any other kind), cover and simmer until done. Meanwhile cook some noodles and add them to the chicken and soup when the chicken is done. Of course you can also add sauted onions, bell peppers or other things, too.

1/8 cup parmesan cheese

Combine butter, mustard, worcestershire and garlic.
Combine bread crumbs and parmesan in a dish.
Dip chicken in butter mixture, then crumbs. Bake 375° 45 minutes.

When I'm at a loss for what to "cover" chicken in I use a can of the chopped green chilies and a little cheese melted over that. Or I coat them in taco seasoning and a little salsa and bake them that way. I get sick of the same old chicken too and we eat a lot of chicken!

An easy favorite that my son has always loved....

Smother chicken breasts with barbeque sauce and bake until tender. Top with mozerella chese and stick back in oven until melted.

Our favorite thing to serve with it is fresh green beans, left whole, and lightly steamed, along with that baked potato you mentioned.

Something I often due with chicken (and/or Tilapia) is to combine a bit of mayo, parmesan cheese and olive oil. Add pepper and mix. Spread on chicken breasts, top and bottom, and bake at 425' for 13 minutes. You will find the chicken is tender, juicy and perfectly cooked.

I was going to suggest mushroom soup too. My mom used to make pasta and then bake chicken breasts in the soup with a few added things in there, like onions. Serve the chicken and sauce over the noodles.

Ummm... another one. I love poaching chicken breasts then cutting in bite size pieces. Cook Pasta (any kind). Top with California style veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower - plenty of it) and chicken. Spoon on pre-made alfredo sauce. Yummy and fast.

My madeup recipe!
Put chicken breast, on aluminum foil, side by side!
Salt and pepper, little dash of curry pepper on each, then top with an orange slice and an onion slice and a slice of butter on each. Wrap tightly and bake in oven until done.

Cheese stuffed chicken breasts:

Slice a "pocket" in the chicken breast. Fill with cheese of your choice (it's ok if some sticks out). Coat with flour.
Place in a baking dish, spray with a little Pam...add some seasoning, cover and bake at 350-375 till done (how long depends on how thick your chicken breasts are...usually about 30 minutes or so). During the last 10 minutes or so, remove the cover, so it can brown a little.

I rarely cook using measurements...so hope you can work around it. LOL

DH loves this recipe. I use all chicken breasts instead of drumsticks. Bon Appetit!

Oh, another idea! Lemon Pepper! I don't eat chicken anymore, so now I use it on fish (especially salmon), but Lemon Pepper Chicken used to be my favorite. I put lemon pepper on everything!

It this it?

Yield: 8 servings
Source: Cooking Light Magazine - July 1997
Comments: Southern-fried flavor doesn't have to mean throwing healthy eating out the window. Just use the oven instead of the skillet for chicken that's crunchy and moist, with a hint of sweetness.

INGREDIENTS:

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 (6-ounce) skinned chicken breast halves
8 (4-ounce) chicken drumsticks, skinned
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1-1/4 cups finely crushed cornflakes (about 4 cups uncrushed cereal)
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
Cooking spray

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over chicken; set aside.
  2. Combine honey, mustard, paprika, and garlic powder in a small bowl; stir well.
  3. Combine cornflakes and pecans in a shallow dish; stir well.
  4. Brush both sides of chicken with honey mixture; dredge in cornflake mixture.
  5. Place chicken pieces on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  6. Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray, and bake at 400; for 40 minutes or until done.

Jasdip, I made your recipe last night using Panko bread crumbs (I like these better than the canned bread crumbs and I'm too lazy to make my own). It was very good. I only cooked at 350 for about 40 minutes and it was perfect, very tender and not dry. Thanks.

Black Bean and Corn CHicken

1 can Black Beans
1 can Corn
1 jar Salsa
1/2 Brick LF or FF Cream Cheese (cut in chunks)
4 Frozen Chicken Breasts

Cook all together except for cream cheese on high for 5-6 hours. In
the last 1/2 hour, throw the cream cheese on top & let it melt.

***I have used regular and FF cream cheese. Its good either way. I just noticed it says a half of brick...heck I been using a whole 8 oz brick! LOL
Oh, and I thaw the chicken breasts first!

This was fabulous!!! Only thing is that our supermarket chicken breasts are so large, I'd cook them for at least 45 minutes before adding cheese. Sour cream is a must.
