Easy Summer Supper

Our gardenias have been beautiful and fragrant this week.

With Joe's schedule of travel and weeknight classes, I have been all about quick and easy supper solutions this summer. Don't get me wrong. When it's just me and the children, we certainly have our share of fish sticks and party pizzas. But after a few nights of supper that came out of a box, all of us crave something a little more nutritious. We want a meal that packs a flavorful punch, but I don't want to spend all night in the kitchen when there is so much more to enjoy outside.

I am always looking for simple weeknight supper solutions, so I would love to know what's for dinner at your house if you have an easy recipe to share.

You'll find this easy Pecan Chicken on the menu often at our house. Simple yet flavorful, this recipe has become a weeknight staple. Dredge four chicken breasts in a mixture of 2 tablespoons Grey Poupon Country Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons honey and 1 tablespoon mayonnaise. Place chicken in a square baking dish and top with any remaining sauce. Sprinkle with chopped pecans, and bake at 375 for 35 minutes. We enjoy this dish often with green beans and rolls, but this week a simple salad rounded out our meal.

And before we knew it we were back outside enjoying the gardenias!

Simple yet flavorful Pecan Chicken is a go-to meal at our house.
