Ingredients

FOR THE CHICKEN:

  • 3 Large Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Stone Ground Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder

FOR THE PAN:

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

Instructions

  • Lay the chicken breasts out on a large cutting board.
  • Cut each breast in half horizontally, so that you have 2 cutlets from each breast (6 total).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, both mustards, honey, Cajun seasoning, and garlic powder.
  • Add the chicken to the bowl and stir to coat well.
  • Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the chicken to the skillet and sear each side for 5-7 minutes until golden.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and serve immediately. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Notes

NOTE ON MARINADE:  If desired, you can marinate this chicken longer.  Whisk the marinade ingredients together, pour into a large zip-top plastic bag, add the chicken.  Seal the bag and rub the marinade around the chicken to coat.  Refrigerate for up to 24 hours before cooking.
NOTE ON CHICKEN:  If desired you can use chicken thighs for this recipe.  I recommend using boneless/skinless to keep it a stovetop recipe.  If using bone on/skin on thighs, you will need to preheat your oven to 425 degrees.  Sear the chicken for 2-3 minutes per side, then transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked through (temp of 165 degrees).
