    To answer Scotland1 -- honey mustard is a sweet mustard sauce; you can make your own with 1/4 cup honey, 1/4-1/2 cup strong mustard, and approximately 2/3 cup mayonnaise or yogurt (if you will use it quickly).Thanks Janet...I liked this recipe a lot. A similar recipe that my family likes is to use yellow hot dog mustard straight out of the bottle with apricot or peach preserves at a 1:2 ratio...1 part mustard to 2 parts preserves. coat raw chicken (reserve some out for sauce at the table) with mixture and grill or bake until chicken juices run clear. To make it extra yummy, wrap boneless chicken with bacon before coating with sauce.

    This was definately quick and easy. I used chicken tenders instead of breasts so they cooked fast. The taste of mustard overshadowed the apricot a little more than I thought it would, but it was still good and my 6 year old loved it. Will add to my recipe box and make again!
