Versatile Protein

My boys are such picky eaters, but my safest bet is always chicken. Here is another chicken recipe I found that was a hit at my house.

Apple Honey Glazed Chicken


1/2 cup apple jelly
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

Mix apple jelly, honey, mustard, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Brush chicken breasts with glaze.

Place glazed chicken breasts on the preheated grill; cook, occasionally brushing chicken with more glaze, until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F.

Notes: I also seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper to my taste. I doubled all the sauce ingredients except the cinnamon. I used half of the sauce to brush the chicken and the other half as a dipping sauce for the finished product. I also broiled the chicken rather than grilling it. This was good. The chicken definitely needed extra sauce for dipping though. Heat the sauce for dipping until it is bubbling and then you're set and ready to go.
