We eat a lot of chicken in our house. It’s one of those lean meats that is not only delicious, but so healthy for you. It doesn’t hurt that the kiddos love it, either.

Problem with chicken, though, is that it can get kinda boring if you cook it the same way all the time. That’s what makes choosing new and fresh ways to flavor your chicken so important.

From roasted to cilantro lime to cumin to this delicious honey mustard chicken, you can really get through a whole week having just chicken and not get bored by the end.
