H is for Honey Mustard Chicken for The Kids Cook Monday

With chicken being one of the proteins that Bear and Bee will eat (aside from bacon and sausages) many of our family dinners are chicken based.  Honey Mustard Chicken has long been a favourite of mine, and where I used to buy a ready made honey mustard marinade I now have my own home made version.

We had our Honey Mustard Chicken with rice, carrots and broccoli but it teams up equally well with mashed potato and green beans.  By the way, neither Bear nor Bee were interested in helping cook dinner tonight.  I won't force them to help as I don't want them to think cooking is a chore.  I did manage to coax Bear into helping me make the marinade but that was it.

5.  Place chicken on plates and top with remaining honey mustard sauce.  Serve with steamed vegetables and rice.  I didn't add any extra sauce to Bear and Bee's plate as I knew they would be put off by the wholegrain mustard.
