1 Week Meal Plan Night 3

Honey Chicken Bake
Description: chicken breasts baked in a honey-mustard-curry sauce
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast per adult (sauce is for up to four before you need to double)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup of mustard
1/4 cup oil or butter (optional)
1-2 tsps of curry powder
1 tsp salt

Combine everything (but the chicken) in a bowl and mix until smooth (softening the butter might be necessary, although I always leave chunks of butter and they melt as the dish cooks). Pour over chicken in an oven safe dish. Bake at 385 degrees for about an hour, basting a couple of times throughout the bake.

This dish can be prepared the night before.

Side: Roasted Cauliflower
Olive oil
powdered or minced garlic
salt & pepper

Directions: Cut up cauliflower in florets and coat with olive oil, garlic and s&p. Spread out on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven with the chicken for 20 minutes (flip half way through)

Leftover sauce from the honey chicken bake, and leftover cauliflower with some chicken stock and coconut milk make an incredible pureed soup.
