Lemon Mustard Chicken with Almonds Recipe

I love sweet-and-sour flavoring and came up with this version to capture that taste in chicken. The gelatin and mustard make an attractive golden sauce.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (3 ounces) lemon gelatin
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced almonds
  • Hot cooked rice, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine gelatin, butter, mustard, garlic salt and pepper. Brush over both sides of the chicken breasts and place in an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Spoon remaining mixture around chicken.
  • 2. Cover and bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes, basting once. Uncover; baste and sprinkle with almonds. Bake, uncovered, 15 minutes longer or until juices run clear. Serve over rice if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
