Recipe for family meals :

Solo Honey Mustard Chicken and Pasta

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. If you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "This solo dish, when served with a green side salad will make a nice lunch for one, but it can be expanded to be used as a main course. The recipe can also be garnished with black olives and served cold. Cooking is a Creative Sport".


1 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup dry pasta (I like the Bowtie shape)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (Grey Poupon is nice)
1 tablespoon lime juice (Lemon Juice will also work)
1 clove garlic, diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese (Grated)

  • Cover both sides of the chicken breast with the salt and pepper and cook in a hot pan for 4 minutes per side or bake in a 375°F / 190°C / Gas Mark 5 oven for 40 minutes or until the meat has an internal temperature of 170°F or 68°C
  • Set aside to cool.
  • cook the pasta in 2 quarts of boiling salted water until done, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Mix the olive oil, honey, mustard, garlic, and lime juice in the bottom of a shallow pasta dish.
  • Add the hot, but drained pasta and toss.
  • Dice the chicken breast into bite size pieces and toss.
  • Add the parmesan cheese, and serve with a green salad.
