Paleo Tangy Mustard Chicken

Sometimes naming recipes is hard. Sometimes I try to be cheeky. Sometimes I go for the more obvious. Who knew such a simple thing could be so difficult? This time I went for the more obvious name. What can I say? My creative juices seem to be running a little low. Or I am depleting them by cooking up a storm! This recipe is very easy. It would be great to prep in the morning and cook up that night! It is a small portion for two people but could easily be doubled. I served mine with a little homemade honey mustard!
In a completely different topic, I’ve seen three movies in the last week. I had some catching up to do. Not to mention there is about 15 movies I want to see before the end of the year! One movie really stuck out to me from the three, and I had to share. Captain Phillips! It wasn’t even on my radar until a friend of a friend raved about it. I decided to take her advice and check it out. I was so impressed by the acting, film making and story. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Have you seen any good movies lately? I love watching movies wether it is at the theater or curled up on my couch at home.

    Is it possible to roast the chicken or sautee it in a skillet? I might be the only American male without a grill.

      You can definitely cook this in a skillet! Follow the same instructions but if you have very thick chicken breasts, I would butterfly them first!
