Holy Cow! This was good chicken!! Sweet & tangy and topped with bacon & cheese - what's not to like?!?! Simple to make. I let it marinate overnight in the honey mustard mixture and it makes for a quick and easy weeknight meal. All my favorite things!! I love to make this during the week, but it is worthy of company. I will be making this again!
