Broiled Chicken Breast with Honey Mustard Sauce


Broiled Chicken Breast with Honey Mustard Sauce recipe















4 chicken breast halves, boneless, skin-on
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 ½ cups chicken broth, low salt
2 ½ tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
¼ cup apricots, dried
2 tablespoons walnuts
coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon parsley leaves
salt and black pepper
to taste


Broiled Chicken:

Preheat the broiler on high and place an all stainless steel skillet (be sure the handle is also stainless steel) or cast iron pan about 6 inches from the heat for about 10 minutes to get it very hot.

While the pan is heating, rinse and pat the chicken dry and season with 2TBS lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Leaving the skin on, place the breast (skin side up) on the hot pan.

It is not necessary to turn the breast because it is cooking on both sides at once.

Depending on the size, it should be cooked in about 7 minutes. Begin preparing the sauce.

The breast is done when it is moist, yet its liquid runs clear when pierced.

The inside temperature needs to reach 165 degrees farenheit or 74 degrees celcius.

Remove the skin before serving; it is left on to keep it moist while broiling.

Honey-Mustard Sauce:

For honey-mustard sauce, combine broth, 1TBS lemon juice, honey, and mustard in a small saucepan.

Whisk together and bring to a boil on high heat.

Once it comes to a boil, simmer for about 20 minutes.

You want it to be reduced to a little less than half the volume you start with.

This will thicken and intensify the flavor.

Add apricots and cook on high for another 5 minutes.

When sauce is done add chopped walnuts, parsley, salt and pepper.

Serve over cooked spinach or other cooked greens.
