Serves: 4
Total Calories: 100


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts halves (about 1 1/4 pounds)
1/4 cup Dijon style mustard
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
chopped fresh parsley, if desired
4 cups hot cooked rosamarina orzo pasta or rice


1. Heat oven to 375°. Spray rectangular baking dish, 11 x 7 x 1 1/2 inches, with cooking spray. Place chicken in baking dish.

2. Mix remaining ingredients except parsley and pasta. Spread mustard mixture over chicken to coat thoroughly.

3. Bake uncovered 25 to 30 minutes or until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. Garnish with parsley. Serve with pasta.

TO MAKE AHEAD: Mix all ingredients except chicken, parsley and pasta in heavy-duty plastic food-storage bag. Add chicken, turning to coat. Freeze no longer than 2 months. At least 12 hours before serving, place frozen chicken in refrigerator to thaw. Heat oven to 375°. Place chicken in rectangular baking dish and continue as directed in Step 3.

Catherine H. shares her Recipe "Using crushed dried tarragon instead of rosemary is also good in this mustardy chicken. Whenever I made this dish, I made two batches, and kept one on hand in the freezer for another meal."
