Allergy-Friendly Baked Honey Dijon Chicken

Baked Honey Dijon Chicken

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

**Allergy Alert**

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).**
