Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 8 chicken cutlets, about three pounds

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine mustard, brown sugar, honey, and ginger. Whisk until well blended.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Coat the paper with cooking spray. Place the cutlets on the prepared paper and brush both sides of the chicken with the mustard mixture. Bake for about 15 minutes on each side. Set oven temperature to broil and broil for about 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden and slightly blackened. Serve immediately.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
