Note: The original recipe used orange juice rather than apple juice.
Note 2: Sauce is to be room temperature.
–6 chicken tenderloins or breast strips
–minced garlic (in a jar, 1 tablespoon)
–parsley (flat-leaved, 1 handful, chopped, fresh)
–apple juice (bottled, one-half cup)
–honey (bottled, one-quarter cup)
–Dijon mustard (bottled, 1 teaspoon)
–chicken broth (non-fat, low sodium, one-eighth cup)
–salt and pepper
1 – Place the chicken in a covered baking dish with the chicken broth. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Sprinkle the minced garlic and parsley on top. Microwave on high for 8 minutes.
2 – Place the Dijon mustard in a small mixing bowl. Stir together the honey and apple juice, and very, very slowly add to the Dijon, stirring briskly. (Dijon should not be lumpy.)
3 – Serve the chicken hot, with the accompanying sauce on top, room temperature.
