It May Not LOOK Real Pretty, but....

it tasted pretty darn good!!
Tonight we tried Baked Chicken with Dijon and Lime, a recipe from Paula Deen's "The Deen Family Cookbook". It was relatively easy and quick to put together, and had a really nice tangy flavor!
Here's the recipe:
3-4 chicken breasts
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, minced (I used 2 cause we LOVE garlic in this house!!)
finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
3/4 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 400. Rinse chicken and pat dry; place in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, mayo, garlic, lime zest and juice, and pepper. Season the chicken generously with salt. Pour the mustard-mayo mixture over the chicken, tossing well to coat. In a large baking pan, arrange the chicken to fit in a single layer. Bake until cooked through, about 30 minutes.

This is definitely one I'll make again!!
Tomorrow's challenge - Camembert Pasta and homemade foccacia bread!

And though it has nothing to do with food, I just had to include this pic of my incredibly adorbale daughter in her Little Red Riding Hood Halloween costume!

And one playing in the leaves.

Can you tell I'm crazy about her??

Anyhow, be sure to stop by tomorrow for Friday's kitchen tip of the week, and for the results of tomorrow's new recipe!
