  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • ¾ cup flour

  • 1 tsp sea salt

  1. For the honey mustard aioli, mix the mayonnaise, lime juice, honey, and dijon mustard together in a small bowl. Then, add some salt and pepper to taste and mix again. Set aside.

  2. In another bowl, mix the flour, sea salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne, and garlic powder. Set aside.

  3. In a third bowl, mix the egg, milk, 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise, cornstarch and salt and pepper. Set aside.

  4. Slice your chicken breasts through the center to create two thin halves per breast. Sprinkle the sliced chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.

  5. Coat each chicken breast half in the breading mixture, then the marinade mixture, and then the breading mixture again before placing them on a baking sheet.

  6. Bake the chicken breasts at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
