Baked Honey-Dijon Citrus Chicken Recipe: This Chicken Recipe Is Magic

What happens when chicken breasts, honey, Dijon and citrus juices combine in a baking pan? Magic. Seriously. The easy baked honey mustard and citrus baked chicken is a keeper chicken dinner recipe. 

This divine baked chicken dinner recipe is so simple, yet so delicious, we're pretty sure you'll want to eat it every week. To make this chicken you'll need boneless, skinless chicken breasts, honey, Dijon mustard, orange juice, fresh lemon juice and an orange and lemon. The chicken bakes in a casserole dish and creates a beautiful, citrusy sauce to drizzle over the finished chicken. Delish. 

You could use bone-in chicken for this recipe, but be sure to increase the cooking time. Serve this easy chicken recipe with potatoes or rice to soak up that bright sauce.
