Why I Love This Recipe

I've beeen trying to cook healthier and started trying out many Cooking Light recipes. This recipe was inspired by another Cooking Light recipe, which I altered based on the ingredients I had on hand.


Ingredients You'll Need

salt & pepper to season
2 chicken breasts, pounded thin
1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup, which I used instead)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cups finely crushed cornflakes (or bran flakes, which I used instead)
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Cooking spray


Directions

Preheat oven to 400


Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over pounded chicken breast; set aside.


Combine honey, mustard, paprika, and garlic powder in a small bowl; stir well.


Combine cornflakes and pecans in a shallow dish; stir well.


Brush both sides of chicken with honey mixture; dredge in cornflake mixture.


Place chicken pieces on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.


Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray


Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes or until done.


I served this with steamed broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes.
