Ingredients

4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking spray
1/4 cup apple butter
1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped green onions

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to a 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Place the chicken breasts in a baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Combine the apple butter, mustard, salt, red pepper, and black pepper, brush over chicken. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Cut the chicken into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

Spoon the Gorgonzola Cheese Grits into each of 4 shallow serving bowls. Top with chicken, and sprinkle with green onions.

Totals include Gorgonzola Cheese Grits.
