Lemon Mustard Chicken

So if you are a regular reader to my blog, you may know that my family and I are pursuing healthier lifestyle. The biggest change in our life style is to eat all our meals(we have a tendency to forget breakfast and lunch) and to snake health throughout the day.

Here is a recipe that I have made once before, except it brings on a new helath ideal because it is low fat :)

Lemon-Mustard Chicken from BHG

Prep Time: 10 minutes Broil: 25 minutes Makes: 6 servings
2 ½ to 3 pounds meaty chicken pieces (breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks)
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
1 tablespoon Dijon style mustard
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 ½ teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning
1 teaspoon dried oregano or basil crushed
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper

1. Skin chicken. Place chicken pieces, bone side up, on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4-5 inches from the heat about 20 minutes or until light brown.
2. Meanwhile in a bowl stir together oil, mustard, lemon juice, lemon-pepper seasoning, oregano, and red pepper. Brush mustard mixture onto chicken. Turn chicken: Brush with remaining mixture. Broil 5 to 15 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink.
