S'mores Bake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

10-12 whole graham crackers (break up into quarters)
about 1/2 bag of mini marshmallows
1-1 1/2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Spray pan lightly. Layer the bottom with half of the graham crackers, chocolate chips & marshmallows. Repeat. Bake until marshmallows are slightly golden & the chocolate chips have started to melt - about 10 minutes or so.

Chicken with Mustard-Citrus Sauce

Found this in one of the magazines I get & we needed something new for a chicken dinner. It's approximately 1 hour of prep time & 30 minutes of cooking time.

boneless, skinless chicken of your choice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp minced garlic, divided
3 tbsp honey, divided
2 tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper
3 tbsp chopped shallot
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 cup orange juice
3/4 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp orange zest

1) Marinate meat - mix lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, 1 tbsp garlic & 2 tbsp honey in a plastic bag. Add chicken & put in the fridge for an hour.

2) Heat oil in large skillet. Remove chicken from bag & pat dry. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Brown chicken on all sides for about 10 minutes. Add shallots, remaining garlic, & crushed red pepper to the skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan. Add orange juice & chicken broth. Simmer & turn once until the chicken is cooked through (about 10 minutes).
3) Remove chicken. Add mustard, orange zest & remaining honey to skillet. Bring to a boil & whisk until sauce thickens - about 7 minutes. Spoon over chicken & serve!
