Honey Dijon Ranch Chicken

I am a pretty good cook, I will admit it. Over the past several months we have gotten so many delicious meals I haven't had to cook too much. I am getting back into the swing of things now that no one is knocking at my door anymore. hahaha
I am adding a new section on my blog that will include my favorite recipes.
Tonight I am grilling honey dijon ranch chicken breasts. This is my absolute favorite way to make chicken on the grill and is the most requested recipe from Natalie for chicken. I love this recipe because it contains items I always have on had and it is fast and easy. There are 2 ways to enjoy this chicken. Grill it and use on a sandwich, which we do most often, or slice it and put it over angel hair pasta. It is also great in a salad the day after. Enjoy!!!

Honey Dijon Ranch Chicken
4 boneless chicken breasts
1/3 c. orange juice
1/3 c. vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons of honey
1 envelope of ranch dressing (I only use 1/2 envelope)
Mix ingredients together and marinate chicken for several hours. Grill.
*I have already marinated the chicken for only 30 minutes and the flavor is still great!

Hey Gail,

I'm going to have my resident chef Gary try this one. We're always looking for new ways to cook chicken.

Hi Gail; We are trying this on the grill tonight, kind of a cook out party before the ice storm hits Nashville :-) Thanks for the recipe!
