Ingredients
Chicken:
4 chicken breasts
Sauce/Marinade:
¼ cup mustard (whole grain and/or yellow)
½ ripe avocado, mashed or ¼ cup mayonnaise (olive oil-based)
2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup
¾ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder or 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
¼ cup almond flour

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375 °F
2. In a medium bowl or 2-cup glass measuring cup, mix together ingredients for sauce/marinade.
3. In a glass baking dish (“casserole dish”), pour sauce/marinade over the chicken breasts. Turn chicken breasts in the sauce so entire chicken breasts are covered.
4. Bake immediately or marinate over night.
5. Bake for 30 minutes, turning half way (at 15 minutes); chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165°F.

Yield: Serves four.
