I spent my childhood on the waters of the Puget Sound, boating throughout Washington's San Juan Islands and Canada's Gulf Islands. Over the weekend we were at Roche Harbor and I stopped in for a
Honey Mustard Chicken and Potatoes
This is a great make ahead make it up through step 5, keep in the fridge for up to 6 hours. You will need to bake about 30 minutes longer.
If you don’t have stone ground or Dijon mustards you can use a basic yellow mustard it will just have a little less depth of flavor.
To make it a complete meal I will add in broccoli florets to the chicken right before I put in the oven.

- 3 Tablespoons stone ground mustard
- 3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard

- In a small pot over medium heat, stir together butter, mustards, soy sauce and honey. Bring to a simmer and stir until butter is melted. Remove from heat and set aside.
- In a large skillet over medium heat toss together potatoes, onions, 2 Tablespoons of olive oil, seasoning salt and thyme. Cook potatoes until slightly browned, stirring occasionally, about 12 minutes. Remove potatoes from the skillet and set aside.
- In the same skillet add 2 Tablespoons olive oil over medium/high heat. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper and place in hot oil. Brown chicken, about 3 minutes a side.

Chicken breasts come in a variety of sizes and thickness. Your cooking time will vary based on the thickness of your chicken breast.
