Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Tonight, I whipped up a chicken recipe that I've been meaning to try for a while now. It was really good and really easy. I made up the sauce and marinated the chicken in the fridge overnight. When I got home from work, I just dumped it all into a small dish and baked it. We had it with some brown rice and, I must say, it was delicious. Sweet, but not too sweet, ya know? I cut down the original recipe and the directions below include the alterations that I made. If you want to check out the original, click here.

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
Directions: Marinate chicken overnight for best results. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the chicken breasts and sauce in a smaller baking dish. Bake for 40-45 minutes, turning breasts once during cooking.

Puppy Chow

The hub and I put up the Christmas tree and all that jazz this weekend. Whenever we decorate at my in-law's house, my MIL makes finger foods for everyone to munch on throughout the day. We drink sparkling juice and load up on dips and desserts. So, I have continued the tradition by making a few dishes while the hub and I do the decorating at our apartment. This year, I wanted to whip up some puppy chow, too. I realize that all puppy chow recipes include essentially the same ingredients. But, I've most often seen butter mixed up in there. This recipe calls for peanut butter instead and it is soooo good.

Puppy Chow
9 cups Chex rice cereal squares (I think I only used about 8)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used a whole bag)
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
Directions: In a saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate (or you can just use the microwave, like I did). Add peanut butter and mix until smooth. Remove from heat, add cereal and stir until coated. Pour powdered sugar into large plastic bag, add coated cereal and shake until well coated. Store in an airtight container.
