Recipe of the week -- Super Yummy Honey Mustard Sauce
This mustard sauce should be called the Super Yummy Honey Mustard Sauce That Goes On Everything! The name says it all. We use this sauce as a baste, a glaze and a dipping sauce. It's very kid friendly.
This sauce came from a more complicated chicken recipe eons ago. That recipe was only so-so, but this sauce was a huge hit.
At our house this is commonly eaten one of three ways...on ham, on chicken or as a dipping sauce for the ever present chicken nuggets. I'm sure there are lots more ways to use it too. These just happen to be the most used in our house.
For ham I will usually take ham steaks, cook them under the broiler, basting with the sauce every couple minutes. Mmmm.
I do a little more work with the chicken. I dredge chicken breasts in flour and brown them in a skillet with olive oil or butter (depends on the mood). Then I brush the sauce on the chicken breast and broil them until they are cooked through. This makes a nice crispy outside and a juicy inside. Of course extra sauce must be served on the side for dipping! :o)
****Reminder -- Never, ever, ever use sauce for dipping that has been anywhere near raw or undercooked meat. If you want to baste and then use sauce for dipping, remove a portion of the sauce and set aside before you baste.****
I have made up this sauce and kept in the fridge for a week with no problems so you can enjoy many dippings this way.
