(Disclaimer:  I was given product to do this review.  The opinions and photos are 100% mine.)  This easy skillet chicken comes together in no time and is made with just a few ingredients.  I served mine with some oven roasted potatoes and mixed vegetables.  The sauce is really the star of this dish. We had no leftovers.

Maille knows their mustard.  They've been making high quality products in France since 1747. Honey Dijon Mustard with Balsamic Vinegar is the newest flavor to join their line available in the US. It's got the tang of a Dijon, with the sweetness of honey and the deep flavor of balsamic vinegar, making it a winning choice for this dish or any where you choose to use it.

I don't know why, but the combination of beer and mustard just reminds me of Fall.  
This sauce is so good, you guys.  A little tart and a little sweet at the same time.  It really kicked up boring old boneless, skinless chicken breasts to a new level of goodness in a record amount of time.

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are quickly sauted and complimented with a sweet/tart mustard beer sauce to make a quick, delicious meal anytime!


  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4-5 oz. each)
  • salt and pepper, as you like

  • 2 TBS low sodium soy sauce
  • 1-2 tsp. honey
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. In large heavy skillet, heat oil until hot on med./high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to hot skillet. Brown chicken on both sides (about 6 minutes per side) or until chicken is done (internal temp 165 degrees F) Remove chicken to platter and keep warm.
  2. Add onion to hot pan and saute until soft and translucent (about 6-7 minutes) and starts to brown.
  3. In small bowl, combine the beer, mustard, soy sauce, and honey. Pour into hot pan over the onion. Mixture will bubble up a little. Stir to loosen any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil and allow to cook until the mixture has reduced by half and is somewhat thickened.

When I received an email asking if I was interested in trying Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps and Lentil Snaps, I was excited.  I've seen them at the store, but to be honest, never purchased them myself.

To say that Cleveland goes a little nuts over sports might be the understatement of the century. With the football team snagging a certain "Johnny" and the return of a hometown hero/heartbreaker "King" and the addition of "Love"...well, the city is just buzzing with what the new seasons hold for us.  It is a fact that Cleveland LOVES it's sports teams and are some of the most loyal and tailgate-loving fans you will ever find!!   What do Clevelanders like to eat when they tailgate?  Well, it's pretty much anything goes, but hot wings are on the top of most fans lists! With the football pre-season games well under way, college football just around the corner, and basketball season coming up soon...there is going to be plenty of tailgating and home-gating parties to host and to attend in the upcoming months!
