It’s that time again, recipe time! I am so darn happy to see that you’ve all been so interested in my cooking shenanigans. I’m even more happy that you’ve been enjoying the videos – you’ll get a true view of how weird I am. HAHA! I’m linking my YouTube video here, just in case you’d like some entertainment while you make your dinner!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll know that starting next week we will be alternating dinner & desserts. Tuesday of next week you can expect dessert and then the following week you can expect dinner again! I had done a poll in my stories to ask for dinner suggestions, of course everyone suggested things I wouldn’t want to eat. LOL I had to make my own menu, I bring you: Honey Mustard Chicken, Rice a Roni (LMAO) and Maple Carrots! Now let’s get started, before we get into ingredients, get that oven preheated to 350f. Now let’s get your ingredients out!
Chicken Breasts ( I had 3 breasts it was over 1lb)
3-5 Tablespoons of Honey
2 Tablespoons of Spicy Mustard
Minced Garlic (fresh or store bought, whatever you get)
Salt & Pepper
3 – 5 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
Carrots (canned, fresh or frozen)
First you’ll mix up the honey, mustard, garlic, paprika, salt & pepper. If you watched my video, you’ll know that I had wanted my mixture to be a bit thicker. You can add a little extra honey if you’d like. Once it’s all mixed together nicely, you’ll want to get your chicken out. Place it into your baking dish ( I used a glass baking dish). Next just drizzle the honey mixture right over the chicken, make sure they are ALL covered. If you run out of honey mixture, it’s easy, you just make more. LOL! Once the chicken is swimming in the mixture, it’s time to pop it into the oven. I baked mine for 45 mins at 350f, of course some ovens are weird, your chicken may be larger or smaller, so adjust your temp & time accordingly.
About 20 mins into the timer it’ll be time to get your rice started, LOL. I used Rice a Roni because after work, I’m tired. I won’t tell you how to make it because the box already does. This is where you’re more than welcome to substitute for something else. Once the right is going, let’s get those carrots started.
The carrots are sooo simple and are one of my favs. I make them for holidays. If I’m making a holiday dinner, I always opt for fresh carrots. I’ll be honest, this time I used canned and I wasn’t impressed, that’s not happening again. They were a little mushy. I also mushed them while draining the water out. Anyways, you just pop your carrots into a pot, add your syrup and mix them up!
ENJOY! Let me know how yours turns out!
