  • 3/4 cups honey
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with lemon pepper, then place in the casserole dish.

  3. In a medium bowl combine honey, mustard, lemon juice, and paprika, and mix until well blended. Pour mixture over chicken, coating all pieces evenly.
