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.

RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

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!

RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

Here's one of our favourites:

3 boneless, skinless breasts
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 tbsp worcestershire
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup bread crumbs
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.

RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

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.


 o
RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

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.

RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

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.


 o
RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

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.


 o
RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

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.


 o
RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

Broil them, then salsa and cheese on top, back under broiler til melted, serve w/ sour cream if u have it. That's what I make when I want fast. Either that or Chicken Caesar salads.


 o
RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

I often do the same thing nikki ( just above this post ) only instead of sour cream I chop a little bit of cilantro on it. It's so yummy.

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

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?

4 (6-ounce) skinned chicken breast halves
8 (4-ounce) chicken drumsticks, skinned

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.

Oh-Oh Vikki that recipe isn't mine. LOL Not sure who you should give credit to.

RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

Dip the chicken in mayo, then flavored bread crumbs, bake in the oven at 350 for 50 minutes.

RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

Oh sorry! I thought it was Connies! I give credit to Glenda then! LOL....Connie yours sound good too...can you post it?? Or is it the same pretty much just dump it all in and bake it with the chicken..then add the cream cheese?


 o
RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

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.

RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

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!

 o
RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

OH shoot!I didn't say... Yes Vikki Its for the crockpot. I also didn't say I use the 24 oz jar of salsa (Pace here) and I drain a little water off the corn, about half, the black beans I use seasoned ones, don't drain.It smells so good!


 o

RE: what can I do with 2 chicken breast for supper

gwanny's recipe:

Salsa chicken and black beans

1 jar of your fave salsa
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1-2 cups shredded cheddar or Mexi-blend cheese
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Place chicken in baking dish and cover with salsa and beans.***I put the beans in bottom of pan, then top with chicken and salsa, cover and bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Sprinkle cheese over top and let bake another 5 minutes. Moist, yummy chicken!! Serve with a dollop of sour cream on each.

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.
