Baked Mustard Lime Chicken

Not too long ago while I was crusin’ the blogs I follow I saw a tasty recipe by Elana Amsterdam of Elana’s Pantry. She often has great recipes on her blog and while I don’t try many of them, they do sound delicious. One sounded particularly tempting and so I tried it out and it was as wonderful as I thought it would be. The Honey even commented on it and was happy to know that there were leftovers for the following evening.

This Baked Mustard Lime Chicken recipe is different than the one Elana had originally posted because a reader wrote to her and told her how she had adjusted it and loved it (the original was done on a BBQ). This chicken dish is full of flavours that complement one another and is so pleasant. I’m sure it would be hard not saying ‘Mmmm’ after that first bite.
