Juicy, flavorful chicken seared and baked in a honey mustard pan sauce. Pair with green beans for a healthy, easy, one-skillet meal!

Ingredients

  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • a few turns freshly-ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil , divided
  • 12 ounces green beans
  • 3-4 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons smooth Dijon mustard

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Warm 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken. Sear for 2-3 minutes on each side, then transfer chicken to a clean plate, keeping the pan on the heat.
  • While the chicken cooks, place green beans in a bowl or on a cutting board. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, sprinkle with a bit more salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Set aside.
  • After removing the chicken, add garlic to the skillet. Saute for 30-60 seconds, just until fragrant. Whisk in the chicken broth, followed by the honey and both mustards. Stir until smooth and combined, and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet, spoon a bit of sauce over each piece, and tuck the green beans around the sides.
  • Transfer pan to the oven, and bake for 15-20 minutes. The chicken’s internal temperature should reach 165 degrees F, and the green beans will be tender and slightly wrinkled. Remove from the oven and let chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Notes

As written, this recipe works best with "regular" chicken breasts. If using thin-sliced breasts, they're likely to cook much more quickly, and may be cooked through before the green beans are done.
