  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place chicken breasts in a baking dish; sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Mix honey and mustard in a small bowl and pour mixture over chicken. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 40 minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

This is more 3.5 than 4. Make sure you season the chicken with salt and black pepper first! Also, instead of just sprinkling the red pepper flakes on top of the chicken, I sprinkled them and then flipped the chicken over to get both sides. I didn't measure the flakes, I just shook them on. When done, the cooked sauce is watery and it would be nice to thicken it in a saucepan by adding a cornstarch slurry and then serving it over the chicken.

Unfortunately for us, the red pepper flakes covered up all of the honey mustard taste. Disappointing but will try again with less flakes. And we love spicy, but they were just too overpowering for us.

Too Spicy but great. Use half recommended red pepper flakes.

I love it hot! Used more than the recommended amount of pepper, plus dropped a little hot sauce in the mix. Fantastic!

This is such an easy and flavorful dish. My husband loved it. I served it with a salad and mashed carrots and turnips. The honey mustard sauce alongside the sweet carrots was delish!

This dish was AMAZING! I've been so tired of chicken, despite recently trying many different recipes. So easy to make-- can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow night!

I love the idea of this recipe. I love mustard in almost any form, and I love spice. I made it, and wasn't able to get much of a "sauce." I eyeballed the red pepper flakes and realize I'll have to add more next time. I'll make it again, maybe in a smaller dish, and see if a sauce like other reviewers have mentioned (as well as in the recipe photo) develops. We all really enjoyed the flavours of Dijon, honey, and red pepper flakes together. Overall, a keeper!

For the amount of effort, which is very little, this recipe is astonishingly delicious! The honey mustard sauce is good for so many other things as well. I don't know why I haven't been making my own honey mustard all along. I would however recommend red peppering to taste. I didn't use the suggested amount, I just sprinkled it on both sides and it was just right for me.
