lemon mustard chicken

This sounded so good last night...I found the recipe in my Better Homes & Garden limited addition cook book. We ate it over lime & cilantro basmati rice.

~1 lb chicken breasts (I used 4 thin sliced)
~2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
~1 tbsp. dijon-style mustard
~1 tbsp. lemon juice
~1 1/2 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
~1 tsp. dried oregano or dried basil (I used 1/2 tsp. of each)
~1/8 tsp. ground red pepper

Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray & place chicken on unheated rack of the broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for about 20 minutes; or until light brown (mine only took about 5 minutes on high, because I used thi n sliced chicken breasts) make sure you keep checking chicken so it doesn't burn!

Meanwhile, in a bowl stir together oil, mustard, lemon juice, lemon-pepper seasoning, oregano or basil, & red pepper. Brush mustard mixture onto chicken. Turn chicken, brush with remaining mixture. Broil for another 5-15 minutes (again mine cooked in about 5 minutes on the high broiler setting), or until chicken is no longer pink.

Serve over rice or angel hair pasta.
