Honey-Baked Chicken for Two

Total Time

Prep: 5 min. Bake: 1 hour


2 servings

After our children left home, I had to learn to cook all over again, I began to economize on food purchases by buying some meats in quantity and freezing extras for future menus. My husband especially loves this chicken recipe, which I pared down to fit our life-style today. —Helen Whelan Jarrettsville, Maryland


  • 2 bone-in chicken breast halves (8 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place chicken in a greased or foil-lined 9-in. square baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine remaining ingredients; cook and stir over low heat until well blended and heated through. Pour over chicken.
  3. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reaches 170°, 30-35 minutes longer. Baste before serving.

    This was pretty good. I used boneless chicken and baked for 40 minutes. This sauce was fine as written, but I think a little cayenne pepper would give it a nice zip. This was so easy to make, I'll definitely make again, but probably with a little added spice.

    This is a very tasty sauce for chicken. I used chicken tenderloins instead of breasts, but the results were great.
