Honey Mustard Chicken with Almonds

***This was another one of those nights where I had to take stock of what was in the pantry and get creative. This dish turned out to be a new favorite! The flavors all blended wonderfully. I simply whipped up some homemade honey mustard sauce and sprinkled the chicken with sliced almonds.***

4 Chicken breasts
2-3 tbsp. E.V.O.O.
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
4 tbsp. honey
4 tbsp. dijon mustard
Sliced almonds (I used Italian Parmesan flavored almonds)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place chicken in an ovenproof dish. Drizzle with E.V.O.O. and season with salt & pepper. Bake for 35 - 45 minutes, or until juices run clear and chicken is cooked through.

Meanwhile, mix together honey, dijon mustard, and a dash more of salt & pepper.

Drizzle cooked chicken with honey mustard mixture. Top with sliced almonds. Serve immediately!
