Weeknight Meals in a Minute ::: Mustard Chicken

This post is sponsored by French's yellow mustard.  Taste Summer. 

Last summer, I showed you how I grow mustard greens and save the seeds.  Remember?

Well, when French's said they would like to send me some of THEIR mustard seed, I was all over that.
Grow honest-to-goodness French's mustard in my garden?  Yes please!

They also sent along a crate of mustard (of course!) and some recipes.  I got caught up looking at all the goodies and realized I had 27 minutes until dinner was supposed to be served.  CRAP.  I grabbed the easiest looking recipe and went for it.  Start with basic chicken breast, give them a good hearty squeeze of mustard...

Sometimes I am ridiculous and like to match my meal to the flowers on the table.

Goldenrod is free and weedy and a great match for a mustard-centric meal.

 Next on the recipe list are these...

...or maybe these...

There are a host of other ideas on the Naturally Amazing French's pinboard as well.

I am honestly willing to try just about anything mustard thanks to the 0 calories.   #NaturallyAmazing
