All of my men including the Hubster loves dipping sauces of all kinds. We rarely, if ever, sit down to a meal where someone doesn’t request ketchup, honey mustard, barbecue sauce, etc. In fact, my youngest loves the honey mustard that the Hubster makes him that we make a batch almost weekly.
You probably already know this about me but I love to read cookbooks. That’s right, I generally have a pile of them on my nightstand. Constantly flagging recipes that are either 100% safe for my little men or recipes that I could easily recreate to be allergy-friendly. Not long ago, I stumbled across a recipe for Honey Mustard Chicken and knew that I had to find a way to recreate it as my youngest LOVES honey mustard.
After a few attempts, I nailed it and it’s been in my meal rotation ever since. This recipe is simple and can easily be doubled for a larger dinner party.
This recipe is free of the top 8 allergens: dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, wheat and eggs
- ⅓ Cup Dijion Mustard
- ⅓ Cup Honey
- 1½ TBS Dried Rosemary
- 3 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- ½ Small Yellow Onion, diced
- 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
- 3-4 Chicken Breasts
- Salt & Pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 F
- In a small bowl, combine the mustard, honey, 1½ tsp. olive oil and rosemary, set aside.
- In a small sauté pan, add 1½ tsp. olive oil.
- Once the olive oil becomes fragrant, add the onions and sauté over medium heat until golden and tender (about 5 minutes). Add the garlic and sauté for another 1-2 minutes.
- Pour the onion & garlic mixture into the bottom of your baking dish. Place the chicken breasts on top of the onion and garlic mixture. Salt and pepper the tops of the chicken.
- Pour the honey mustard mixture on top of the chicken.
- Bake the chicken covered for 20 minutes. Then remove the cover, baste with the sauce and continue to cook for another 20-30 minutes uncovered (or until the chicken is browned on top and cooked through).
Be sure to read all of your labels. I have found many spices and other products (i.e. garlic powder) that includes additional ingredients like soy.
Known Allergy Information (containing the major 8): None
If you are going gluten free, substitute a gluten free flour mix. Here is my favorite gluten-free substitute.
**Disclaimer: Please note that every child’s sensitivity to their given allergen(s) varies. Some of the items that I use do contain “natural flavoring” and “spices” which is hard to determine if it is 100% allergy free. You should always check with the manufacturer to confirm that your child can have their product(s). The products that I list are items that I’ve been using for awhile and have proven to be safe for my boys (their allergies are dairy, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish and sesame).**
