Baked Mustard-Lime Chicken from The Daily Meal

Pair with Keller Estate Oro de Plata Sonoma Chardonnay 2007

 


Recipe by Elena Amsterdam
 
This recipe for chicken breast is full of flavorful lime and cilantro, and when you bake it (rather than grilling) the flavors have a chance to entirely infuse the dish. Thanks for this excellent suggestion Ana!
 
I don't know if your children will like this easy chicken dish; I can tell you that mine gobble it up every time I make it. If you're looking for healthy recipes for dinner, look no further, this chicken is it.
 
 
 
INGREDIENTS
 
1/2 cup fresh lime juice 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped 1/4 cup Dijon mustard 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 
 
1 pound skinless boneless chicken breast
 
 
 
DIRECTIONS
 
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the lime juice, cilantro, mustard, olive oil, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a food processor and pulse until ingredients are well combined.
Rinse the chicken breasts, pat dry, and place in a 7-by-11-inch Pyrex baking dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, cover, and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to 6 hours.
Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes uncovered, or until an instant-read thermometer reaches 165 degrees. Serve with the extra sauce spooned on top.
