Baked Chicken Breast

With a great garlic sauce

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F | 200°C. Lightly grease a baking tray / sheet with oil and line with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Combine the oil, honey, mustards, garlic, lemon juice and paprika in a small bowl to combine well.
  3. Place the chicken onto the prepared baking sheet (tray). Season generously with salt and pepper. Spoon 3/4 of the honey mustard mixture evenly over the chicken and spread evenly all over each breast. Pour 1/4 cup water onto baking sheet to prevent burning, creating a sauce while baking.
  4. Bake until cooked through (about 20-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts). Spoon the remaining sauce over each breast and broil (or grill) for a further 3-4 minutes on medium-high heat to brown the chicken and caramelise the edges.
  5. Cover with foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes to allow the juices to settle before serving.
  6. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
