  • 6 skinless boneless chicken breast halves, cut into large chunks
  • 1 to 2 red bell peppers sliced
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup prepared mustard
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Almonds & fresh parsley for garnish totally optional


  • Crockpot Directions:
  • Lightly butter, oil or spray the crockpot insert.
  • Place the chicken in a single layer in the crockpot.
  • Top the chicken with the bell pepper slices.
  • Mix the honey, mustard and paprika in a small bowl and pour over the chicken.
  • Cover and cook on low for 5 1/2 to 6 hours (time will vary depending on the size and thickness of your chicken breasts). Alternately, cook on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

Oven Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper as desired.
  • Place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • Mix the honey, mustard, and paprika in a small bowl.
  • Pour 1/2 of this mixture over the chicken, and brush to cover.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  • Turn chicken pieces over and top with the bell peppers.
  • Pour the remaining sauce over both chicken and the peppers.
  • Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
  • Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

Freezer Prep Directions:

  • Pour the honey and mustard directly into a pre-labeled 1-gallon freezer bag.
  • Add the paprika, zip the bag closed and squeeze and shake the bag to mix the ingredients.
  • Add the chicken and peppers and zip closed.
  • Turn and shake the bag several times to coat the chicken.
  • Slightly unzip the bag and remove as much air as possible.
  • Freeze flat and use within 2 months.
