Serves 4 (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 4 ounces beans)

Sweet honey and toasty sesame team up for a flavor combo everyone at the table is sure to love. Serve with precooked brown rice for a quick and easy side to soak up sauce from the chicken.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine chicken stock, honey, 1 tablespoon oil, and mustard in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring with a whisk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook 10 minutes or until syrupy, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done. Pour honey mixture over chicken, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Step 3

Prepare green beans according to package directions. Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, butter, and beans in a bowl; toss to coat. Sprinkle with almonds.

Minor substitution:  I used bone-in chicken breasts which I grilled on our Traeger thus saving the 2nd Tablespoon of oil. Slightly thickening the sauce with a little corn starch will make it a five star meal next time.

Very Tasty Dish!

This chicken was full of flavor-no marinating needed! I couldn't believe how flavorful it was. I made the rice & green beans too, very complimentary to the chicken. It was quick & easy as well, adding it to our weekly rotation!

Good and easy.

We didn't make the green beans (had broccoli instead). My 17-year-old chowed down on 3 pieces. It was not a great dish, but quite good and serviceable for a weeknight, especially.

Kid Approved!

This chicken was incredibly moist and the sauce was so flavorful!  My 10 year old picky eater didn't realize she was eating dijon mustard!! http://determinedwwmomma.blogspot.com
