Here’s another quick chicken recipe, one that can be prepared ahead of time and broiled right before eating. Once again, I recommend pounding the boneless breasts to an even thickness to promote even cooking.
This recipe is also a low-calorie preparation and the taste belies the lack of lots of fat and calories.
BROILED CHICKEN BREASTS
2 Boneless chicken breast halves
2 t. light mayonnaise
1 T. dijon mustard
1/2 t. dried tarragon
1/2 t. dried thyme
dash cayenne or red pepper flakes.
1. Pound the chicken carefully until even.
2. Mix the rest of the ingredients and spread over the chicken. Refrigerate, covered until ready to cook.
3. Broil 5-6″ from heat, 8-10 minutes.
By the way, use this same mixture without the thyme as a dressing for steamed or sauteed asparagus spears.
