Since I started food blogging I’ve shared a few chicken recipes with you. Like this Juicy and Flavorful Lemon Chicken Breast or This delicious Roasted Chicken with Vegetables. Besides being very inexpensive I find chicken to be my best choice for a healthy and easy meal.  Weeknight dinners don’t have to be complicated and this  One-Pan Honey-Mustard Chicken Breast Recipe is proof of that.

One of the main reasons I love using my cast iron is because of the convenience of taking it from the stovetop to the oven. The most important part, no hassle when it’s time to clean. One pan and one pan only. Can it get better than that? Well, yes it can. The flavors on these chicken breasts are finger-licking good!

    OMG… My partner thinks he died and went to heaven.He now believes I am a The Goddess of the Kitchen. So good… didn’t have any Italian seasoning left so I used Greek seasoning. Amazingly good. It is definitely a “ must try” recipe.
