Another clueless meat question
Hello everybody. I have another question about cooking meat- this time, chicken. I would like to make this recipe for baked honey mustard chicken for my husband and kids tonight but am wondering what a good amount of salt and pepper would be, as it says 'to taste.' It calls for the salt and pepper to be sprinkled on before mixing the other ingredients together and pouring them over the chicken. Here is the recipe, thanks in advance.
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
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste, and place in a lightly greased 9x13 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.
3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Turn chicken pieces over and brush with the remaining 1/2 of the honey mustard mixture. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
