Dijon Baked Chicken with Rice

If you like Asian food, you will like this recipe. My sister made this for us when we were in Edmonton and I thought it was so tasty! This was just a little spicy, not too HOT (so don't be worried if you look at the hot chili sauce and think your mouth with be one fire when you make this). Is it kid friendly? You decide. If your kids like Asian food, or Indian food or are used to trying different things, then I would give this recipe a whirl. My boys LOVE curry, especially butter chicken.

Sorry this blog hasn't been updated for a while. We decided to do the Southbeach Diet in June. So obviously I wasn't cooking much except salads and steaks on the BBQ. By the way, I really think the diet works because I still haven't gained the weight back that I lost. It is a good diet to change your eating habits and to start eating more healthy.

Here it is:

Dijon Baked Chicken with Rice

10-12 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 TBSP curry powder
1 TBSP onion flakes
1/2 tsp red crushed chilies
1/2 cup liquid honey
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1 TBSP soy sauce
1 tsp hot chili saauce, Asian style (can be chili-garlic sauce)

1-1/2 cups rice
3 cups water

1. Unravel thighs to flatten and scrunch together in a large shallow oven-safe pan. Combine ingredients and pour evenly over chicken. Flip the chicken around with a fork until each piece is well coated. End by making sure rough side of the thigh is down. Cover with plastic wrap and refridgerate overnight (you don't have to, but it tastes better).

2. Preheat over 350. Place rice in oven. Turn chicken with a fork and place in preheated oven.

3.Cook 50 min. About half way through cooking time flip chicken over.
