Our family loves honey mustard, and it is a natural with chicken breasts since they are mild and absorb the flavor so well. Just make sure they are skinless and can absorb the sauce (plus they are so much healthier that way!) This is a favorite fall and winter dish for us, or when we have guests!

Slowly add additional teaspoon of cornstarch only if needed.
