  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (tamari for gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic minced


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and spray a large 11 x 8-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add the chicken breasts to your baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper, to season, and turn to coat.
  • Meanwhile, add the soy sauce, honey, spicy brown mustard, lemon juice, and minced garlic to a small mixing bowl. Whisk well to combine.
  • Pour your prepared sauce over the top of the chicken breasts. Thoroughly coat each chicken breast in sauce (I like to use kitchen tongs to rotate each chicken breast 1-2 times).
  • Tent your baking dish with foil and transfer it to the oven. Bake, covered, for 20 minutes. Then uncover and continue to bake for an additional 5-15 minutes, or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees as measured with a digital meat thermometer.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.


  • You can also prepare your marinade and chicken ahead of time. Combine the chicken breasts, olive oil, salt, pepper, and marinade in a gallon size zip-lock bag and refrigerate until ready to bake.
  • I did not feel the need to sear my chicken breasts before baking. If you decide to use bone-in skin-on chicken thighs, this is a step that I would recommend.
  • Poultry should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F and allowed to rest for 5 minuts before slicing.
