Ingredients

4
boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/3 c
dijon mustard
1 Tbsp
honey
3 Tbsp
apricot preserves
1 tsp
ground ginger

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°F.
2
Lightly spray the bottom and sides of a 10-inch casserole dish (or any baking dish large enough to hold the chicken pieces). Place the chicken breasts in the coated baking pan.
3
With a wooden spoon, mix the mustard, honey, apricot preserves, and ginger in a small mixing bowl until well blended. Brush (or spoon) the mustard mixture over the tops of the chicken breasts. Bake the chicken, uncovered, for 30-45 minutes (depending on thickness of the breasts).
4
After 15 minutes of baking turn over each chicken breast, spoon sauce over them, and continue baking for the remaining 15 minutes, or until breasts are thoroughly cooked.
5
Transfer the chicken breasts to individual plates. Spoon the sauce over each serving.

For my kids, I like to put their portion of the sauce in a condiment cup so they can use it as a dipping sauce. (What can I say--it's a kid thing.)
