Honey-Baked Chicken

Here's a fast, easy, cheap, and yummy chicken recipe. It can be made two ways: quick, or a little bit longer.

Quick:

In a square glass pan, put one stick of butter, and oh, about a cup of honey. Put your chicken breasts in the pan, and cook until it's done (I usually flip the chicken halfway through). Here's what I do: I use the Tyson tenderloins that are individually frozen. There's about 15 pieces in a bag for around 8 dollars, and it lasts us a few weeks. I put about four or five pieces in the pan, and cook it from frozen for 30 minutes. I just make sure there's enough butter and honey to almost cover the chicken.
Average cost for the meal:
About 2.50 for the chicken, .50 for one stick of butter, and mere pennies for a cup of honey...so about 3 or 4 bucks, plus any sides.

A litte bit longer:

In a saucepan, combine one stick butter, one cup honey, one cup honey dijon mustand, and 1/2 cup finely chopped onion. Cook/saute' until onions start browning. Pour into glass pan, then add chicken. Cook until chicken is done! It's got a little bit more flavor, but you add more ingredients ($) and have to wash another pan (boooo!) However, you can get more than one batch of chicken (about 3) out of one thing of honey dijon mustard, and one onion doesn't cost much.

Enjoy!
