    Honey Dijon Chicken

    These moist tender chicken breasts are nicely browned and covered in a flavorful sauce that gets its sweetness from honey and pineapple juice. It's tasty and very delicious.

    12 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (3 pound)
    4 garlic cloves, minced
    2 teaspoons dried thyme
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    1 1/2 cups pineapple juice
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup Dijon mustard
    1/3 cup honey
    Hot cooked rice or noodles

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Rub chicken with garlic and garlic and thyme. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

    In a skillet, cook chicken in oil until no longer pink.

    In a bowl, combine cornstarch, pineapple juice and water until smooth. Stir in mustard and honey. Add to the skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve chicken and sauce over rice or noodles if desired.

    NOTE: I serve half and freeze the other half. It freezes well up to 3 months.

    To use frozen chicken: Completely thaw in the refrigerator. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes or until heated through.
