This is a very tasty way to dress up chicken breasts. Instead of making the honey mustard sauce, I reserved some of the mayo and Italian dressing mixture to serve on the side. It was so very good!

My family loved this chicken. What I particularly enjoyed was the full flavor developed after only thirty minutes of marinating.
