The Best (and easiest) Chicken Recipe Ever

I think everyone who is into fitness or eating healthy gets tired of eating chicken at one point or another. Let’s be honest – it can be bland and boring. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Never eat plain, flavor-less chicken again. This recipe is the answer. I make this recipe almost every single day and I never get tired of it. It’s just so simple, yet adds so much flavor, and doesn’t add any sugar or excess sodium. It’s sweet & savory and I crave it again and again.

What you’ll need:

-Chicken tenderloins or chicken breast (I usually use about 200 g raw for a serving)

-Good quality dijon mustard (I love the original Maille – Grey Poupon also works well)

-Good quality balsamic vinegar

-Stevia packet

How-to:

Preheat oven to 425 F. Put your chicken down on a foil lined baking sheet. In a small cup or bowl, mix about a tablespoon of mustard with about 1-2Β tablespoons of balsamic. Add about 1/2-1 stevia packet depending if you want it sweeter or not. I usually use about 1/2 and it enhances the flavor perfectly without being overly sweet. Generously cover the chicken with the sauce. Simply increase the amounts if you are making more servings – the measurements don’t have to be exact for it to come out good – another benefit of this recipe!

Maple Dijon variation: use 1 T mustard, 1 T red wine vinegar, and 2 tsp pure maple syrup – so good!
