Honey & mustard chicken

I admire people who can grab something out of the freezer and then make a delicious meal in no time at all. It's impressing! Whenever I'm asked to stay for an unplanned dinner and the hostess say (very modestly) that it's just something simple, I usually feel like asking "It this you doing something simple?". I know that there are some people who just say it's simple even though it's not & there's some people who actually has the talent to make something that good that quickly. But then there's some people who happens to have one of those recipes which tastes delicious even though it's really easy to make. I try to hang on to those recipes and I would like to share one with you.

Honey & mustard chicken

4 tbs mustard (preferably whole-grain mustard)
4 tbs liquid honey
1 tbs lemonjuice
4 chicken filet

Preheat the oven to 190 °C.
Place the chicken filets in a baking pan.
Mix mustard, honey and lemonjuice and then pour it over the chicken. Turn around each filet to make sure that both sides of each filet has been covered with the mixture.
Put the baking pan in the oven. According to the recipe it should be in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes, but I know that my oven requires at least 30 minutes so be aware of that and make sure that the chicken is ready when you take it out.

Serve it with whatever you prefer. Roasted potatoes, rice, salad... I serve whatever I'm in the mood for or whatever is easiest at the time.

The first real snow came the other day. I realized that I wrote my last post in october and now suddenly it's snowing... This years has been magical but why does time have to move so quickly? I'm actually living my dream and my loved ones are all well. I feel truly blessed! I hope that you all are fine & that this fall has been as magical for you as it has for me!

Another magical time is of course Christmas. Here's some of my tips if you're looking for some online-inspiration:
