Facebook has a lot of uses, but one of my favorite is recipes. Yesterday I was on Facebook and I saw this recipe and since I had chicken out and no plans for it I thought i would try it. It turned out delicious and is great paired with some roasted veggies or a salad.
Cheesy Mustard Chicken
-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used 2 large chicken breasts for the 2 of us)
-1.5 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese (I used a Colby Cheddar mixture that I had)
-1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
-3/4 cup whole milk (I didn't have milk so I used 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup water)
-3 Tbsp Butter
-2 Tbsp flour
-2 Tbsp whole grain mustard
-1 tsp garlic salt/powder or fresh garlic
-salt and pepper to taste (I used a ton of pepper and it fit with the dish perfectly)
-Preheat over to 375
-Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place in baking dish (I cut the chicken into smaller reasonably sized portions)
-cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 20-25 minutes. they can still be a bit pink as they get cooked more.
-In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and whisk in flour. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly until smooth and golden in color.
-remove from heat and gradually whisk in whole milk. return to heat and bring to a boil. reduce heat and let simmer for 5-7 minutes or until thickened.
-Stir in cheeses, mustard, garlic and more salt and pepper.
-Remove chicken from oven and drain a bit if it is really watery. Pour sauce over top.
-Return to the oven and bake for another 25-30 minutes. I baked for 25 and broiled for the last 2 or 3 to crisp up the top a bit.
-Remove from oven, serve hot and enjoy.
This is a super quick and easy dinner, thanks to 12tomatoes.com for the recipe!
