Aimee's Quick Chicken
This recipe came about by accident when I only had a few minutes. My husband declared it, 'The best chicken ever!'

I am a man who rarely cooks - yet I was able to make this dish with ease and it turned out great. My wife and I love it and have it once a week. We've even made it for casual dinner parties with great results. I follow the recipe to the letter, except I substitute "Dijonaise" (dijon mustard with mayo) for the mustard. After trying it both ways, I find that the Dijonaise creates jucier results. As to the bacon, I start with fresh bacon and microwave it crispy and then crumble/chop to make the bits. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!Read More
I love all of these ingredients, so I was very excited about this recipe. I thought that 30 minutes at 400 was a little strange so I did the more standard 350 for one hour. The chicken turned out moist and perfectly cooked, but the whole thing was VERY salty. I even used real bacon as was suggested, and sweeter terriyaki sauce. I like strong flavors, but this was just too much.Read More

I used T.Marzetti's Dijon Honey Mustard dressing instead of the dijon/teriyaki. It tasted wonderful! The kids (5,5, and 3) loved it, too. Also, you guys who didn't like the bacon bits probably used those fake ones, right? Try Hormel Real Bacon Bits in the jar. They are like little bacon pieces instead of red ceramic (haha). You'll love it!
I cut down on the cheese and mustard a bit. It was very easy, but it was too salty for my taste.
Really delicious! I didn't know if the dijon/teriyaki pairing would work; but it really did. It might have helped that I didn't use processed bacon bits but instead fried up three strips of bacon for the three chicken breasts I was using, and chopped it up in the magic bullet. The processed bits are way more expensive and don't taste nearly as good as fresh bacon. This recipe is great because you don't need to measure, just slop it all on and it will taste great.
This was OK, however the chicken was somewhat dry and the amount of dijon mustard suggested seemed a little much for my boyfriend and I, so the second time I made it I used less mustard and it came out better. May also depend on the strength of the dijon mustard. Good recipie if you like a strong tasting spicy sauce.
I did it exactley like the recipe said, my husband and I did not like it at all. He ended up scraping the stuff off and pouring ketchup on the chicken!
Very easy and good! I chose a teriyaki sauce with the lowest sodium content I could find due to the reviews saying it was salty. I also mixed the dijon mustard and teriyaki sauce together with a small whisk before pouring over chicken. Delicous and added to my recipe box- will definitely be making again.
I was pretty excited about this but unfortunately it may just not be for me. I did not like this chicken at all, but my boyfriend did (although he might have been saying that 'cause I can be a wee bit sensitive about my cooking). Just because I didn't like that does not mean its bad, try away everyone, what's the harm.
I wanted a new recipe to take to a potluck dinner, and tried this one. I made it for my family and we really liked it. But when I made it for the dinner my husband was upset that it was gone before we got to it. I've shared it with friends and it was a hit there. I read the reviews and made these changes for my version: Honey Mustard, Honey Teriyaki Barbeque Sauce, real bacon pieces and shredded Italian cheeses (the version I used had 4 chesses blended). Thanks, it was fast and tastey.
This was great! My husband was a little skeptical of the Parmesan, but he really enjoyed it. My sister was skeptical of the bacon, but wouldn't have been the same w/o it. I did sub honey dijon salad dressing for dijon mustard (I used Kraft brand) and the results were outstanding! Thanks for sharing Aimee...your husband was right! TIP: The lefovers are amazing on a salad...perfect! // Addition: I made this again...left out the bacon and used soy/worcestershire combo instead of teriyaki...and used twice the amount. Still used salad dressing. It was even better! The sauce is great spooned over potatoes! I also used boneless, skinless thighs, which my husband likes better. His favorite chicken recipe, now.
I enjoyed this but my husband wasn't crazy about it. He said he does not like mustard on chicken. Oh well!
I made this recipe for my dad, and he thought it was great. I used a teriyaki bbq sauce instead of straight teriyaki. Served it with some rice, and he now requests it at least once a week.
My husband was a little suspicious of this when I put it in front of him, but the more he ate, the more he liked it. I've made it three times since and I would recommend highly. Doesn't get much easier than this recipe. OH- as the mixture had a tendency to stick to my dish, I'd spray a little non-stick spray beforehand!
I added about 3 oz of dijon mustard and 1 oz of honey mustard, mixed up well and then added 1/2 cup of Teriyaki sauce to the mustard mix. Once all mixed well, I poured it on 6 chicken breast halves. Then I put some grated parm cheese on it and 1/4 cup bacon bits and about 1/3 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese. I baked it for 30 minutes exactly at 400. IT WAS PERFECT!!!
I tried this even though i read so many bad reviews. I wish i hadn't! If anything, I'd suggest using low-sodium terriyake and less dijon...and marinate the chicken in that first. I used one of the suggestions to wrap in bacon instead of using bits...but use real bacon bits instead of wrapping in bacon slices...is easier to cut and eat.
Excellent. Tastes refined and sophisticated. You MUST use Dijon mustard to get the right taste (the white wine in dijon seems to be a big part of the flavor), and use low-salt terriyaki and low-salt bacon otherwise you are just asking for the "too salty" experience. I feel the parmesan is optional in this recipe.
I liked the taste quite well, but it was a bit too salty. I used bacon bits and will try regular bacon next time to see if that makes a difference.
5 Stars for such a quick and tasty dish! I also used real crumbled bacon, and since I had a lot of mushrooms, I sauteed them and threw them in on top of the bacon and sprinkled the Parmesan over all. Turned out great.
I didn't measure the quantities and just smeared the chicken with mustard, poured over some sweet teriyaki and then sprinkled bacon bits and cheese. It was very easy and tasted quit good will definitely make again. Though the cheese I used was not fresh and not sure it added much. Next time may skip it.
This is the best chicken I've ever had in my entire life. I think the recipe calls for a little more mustard than a lot of people would like, although I was fine with it and so was my family. I've been asked to make it again, and I will.
My husband and I enjoyed this recipe, although I found it to be very salty. I will make it again, but I will use low-sodium teriyaki, and I will add a little brown sugar.
I cooked this for a dinner party I had recently and everyone absolutely LOVED it. It's so easy and quick. Thanks for such a great recipe.
This is an excellent quick recipe. I followed it with the change of using honey mustard instead because that is what I had on hand. I also used an apricot terriyaki glaze i found at the store. It turned out very good. I only cooked it for 25 min and it may have only needed 20. Overall it was excellent and I will definetely be making it again. Prep time is so minimal and my husband even loved it which is sometimes hard to do! Thanks Aimee!
We've been making this for a while now and really enjoy it. As is, it's a little heavy on the mustard. I've found that 1 TBS of Dijon per breast is the perfect amount. I use a thick honey/teriyaki 30-minute marinade in place of regular teriyaki sauce. You can find it in the BBQ sauce section at the store. I add a little more teriyaki sauce to the dish as a personal preference. I combine the cheese and bacon before sprinkling on. Bake at 375, 45 mins. To keep the cheese from burning and the chicken moist, I cover the dish with foil and remove about halfway through. Then I use the juices to baste over the top a couple times before it's done. Comes out perfect.
So I used this recipe as a base for my own creation... instead of dijon, I used honey mustard instead of teriyaki sauce, I used BBQ sauce instead of parmesan cheese, I used cheddar cheese instead of the bacon bits, I used the Hidden Valley Ranch dressing with bacon and onion flavor (delish! but high in cals/ fat, so I didn't use too much) So easy though, just put the chicken in the baking dish, cover each piece with honey mustard and spread over the chicken with spoon or brush. Then zig-zag drizzle each of the BBQ sauce and Ranch over the pieces of chicken, then sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Cook at 400 degrees for about 30-50 min depending on the size and type of chicken breasts (we prefer on the bone/ with ribs because it keeps the meat juicy, about 45 min to cook) Made with rice and veggies and our family LOVED it! SOO YUMMY!
I use Jack Daniel's Honey Dijon for this, and thicker marinade style Teryiaki. My famiy loves it, and it's so easy to make! Tastes great w/some simple parmesan noodles.
I don't care what anyone says, this is a great recipe. It's the easiest thing in the world to throw together, especially since I only cook for two. I never have bacon bits at home so I wrap the breasts in bacon. I tried it with pork chops once and it did not taste very good, but it's perfect for chicken!
Very good and very easy/quick! I make this about once a week for my family and its become a favorite! I pound out the chicken first and take off 5 min. of baking. Makes them a little more juicy.
Fantastic recipe! I used Teriyaki Marinade which is a lot thicker and I coated the bottom of the chicken with the mustard and Parmesan also.
This chicken is fantastic! It is so easy, and so tasty. My husband loves this recipe. It has become a staple in our house. I have tried it using the cheap grated parm you get at the grocery store and also with real shredded parm, and have found that the grated parm works better.
My husband and I just finished this chicken for dinner. It was delicious. It came out very moist and had a great mix of flavors. I essentially wanted to lick the bottom of the baking dish, but it was too hot. I might go back to it now though since it has cooled down. One note, I usually salt and pepper chicken before cooking it, but this recipe definitely did not need that with the teriyaki sauce and the Parmesan cheese. Glad I didn't automatically do that like I usually do.
This was an easy and surpisingly tasty dish. I didn't think I'd like the combo, but I used other rating suggestions and used 1/4 cup teryaki BBQ and 1/4 cup honey mustard & real bacon bits. My boyfriend loved it too, and he's not one to rave about a dinner. Thanks, Aimee!
Loved it! Very easy and delicious!
Ok THIS MEAL was amazing! It was quick to pull together for a yummy comfort food night. I will definitely make it again.
Good and Easy!!
My kids loved this! I was out of Dijon so substituted honey mustard. It turned out great! It was moist, flavorful and had the right blend of flavors to please even the pickiest of eaters!
The family loved this recipe. My kids are bacon lovers, so this was perfect for them. The chicken was easily prepared and baked up moist and flavorful.
I figured I'd love this since I love mustard, and I did, although I didn't think there was enough mustard flavor--but I just barely coated the chicken, so that could be why. Bf even tried it (he hates mustard) and said the mustard taste was there but bearable. I'll add more mustard next time, and make him different chicken again (he got regular breaded chicken breasts instead). I used real bacon bits--the kind that come in a bag, not in the spice container--and real parmesan, so just sprinkled a bit. I really like this and the cooking method and time was spot on, even though I was a tad concerned. Worked really well and I served with roasted red potatoes and salad. Great meal! Thanks for the recipe!
My husband and I loved it! I cut back a tiny bit on the mustard and drizzled some honey over the top before putting it in the oven. Delicious! We will be making this one a lot.
This was very good and I would make it again. I used enough mustard to lightly cover both sides of the chicken. I omitted the bacon. It was delicious.
This dish was delicious! Fussy husband enjoyed it. What makes it the best is that it is so easy to make. I tried the 1/2 mayo & 1/2 mustard variation but thought it would have been better with all mustard and probably still would not have been too salty. Will try marinating the chicken next time. Thanks for a great recipe!
The kids liked it...amazing!
Did not like this; only three bites were taken from the whole dish. Reduced the mustard. Would never make again.
Fantastic! I didn't have parm on hand, but I felt safe skipping it after reading some of the reviews. This was really easy and delicious. I generally followed the recipe, using Dijon mustard, teriyaki sauce, and bacon bits (I nuked some bacon then crumbled it), but I only made eyeball measurements. My husband really liked this too, and he's not easily impressed. I'll definitely be making this again.
My boyfriend and I just loved this recipe. I am a terrible cook and it turned out great. It was even better the next day. But make sure you don't use hot dijon mustard I think I was too spicy with the teriyaki sauce. Oh and I really don't think the bacon bits helped but make it saltier and I don't care for that, but my boyfriend who doesn't like teriyaki or my cooking loved it. This Recipe passed the Test!
I am an on the go single mom and my son and I absolutely love this recipe. Quick and easy and great tasting. Love it.
So, made this last night and kids and I LOVED it, DF is NOT a fan of mustard, especially not dijon, so he ate it, but will not like it again. But I still have to give this 4 stars for ease, taste and its different and NEW! I served it with cheddar mashed potatoes and steamed veggies, even my SUPER pick 4yo ate it!
I've made this recipe several times. It is great exactly as is, but also with real bacon, or mozerrella cheese substituted. I'd suggest using a nice thick teriyaki sauce, and make sure to use a smallish pan to help prevent the sauce from burning as it cooks. Yummy! 4 1/2 stars!
Delicious recipe. I did what someone else did with the bacon. I wrapped the chicken with TURKEY bacon....it was great! I will fix this again for my family! :)
We tried this and loved it - we have since made it for family members when entertaining :) I find the mustard can be a bit strong (especially if using English mustard as we did) but my hubby loves that! We just changed the amount of mustard on each breast depending on personal taste. Great with potatoes and veg or on top of pasta :)
I tried this and loved it. As others have said, I chose to use honey mustard instead of dijon and covered both sides of the chicken with it. Also used real bacon bits. Use more teriyaki sauce than what is called for and it will give you enough sauce to put on top of the chicken and on the mashed potatoes I served it with. I'll definitely make this often.
A simple recipe to use when you are short on time and have left-over bacon! Chicken was very moist. I melted approx. 2 Tablespoons of butter in a glass baking dish (in the oven while it was preheating) and then added the chicken. I also put all of the liquid ingredients with the chicken into a ziplock bag to evenly mix everything together. Not bad!
The bacon burned a bit when cooking, but otherwise it was pretty good! Make sure not to use too much mustard.
This is OK but not my favorite. Teryaki sauce and cheese with bacon bits is a weird combo.
I love this recipe! It is easy and my family loves it! A great one when your running late and you want a quick meal!
I scaled this recipe down for two and found it wonderfully delicous and easy to make. I used the called amount of dijon, but used a honey dijon instead with a splash more of teriyaki sauce for a sweet flavor!
I was surprised at how good this turned out because it was so easy! Thanks Aimee!
It was pretty good but not great. I'd make it again if I were in a real hurry for a quick supper.
It was a wonderful meal everyone loved it, worth trying different mustard flavours on it though...Honey mustard would be great!
Awesome recipe for chicken!!
My husband and father both loved this dish and it's very easy to make. I thought the chicken turned out a little dry though. Maybe I will try covering it while it bakes next time.
This recipe was incredible. The combination of teriyaki and dijon doesn't particularly sound good, but it was amazing. My girlfriend and I were impressed, thanks...
Quick, Easy, Very good.
I was glad to find this recipe. I had an hour to think of something for dinner and be ready to serve it and this was it! It couldn't have been easier. I thought it sounded like it could be dry so I poured about 1/4 cup of melted butter over the top before baking and baked at 350/45 min. IT WAS DELICIOUS! Thank you, Aimee.
We liked this one. I think it'd be great in the cooler months of the year since it has a comfort food feeling to it with the dense cheese and bacon. The taste was good. I'd recommend putting the cheese down first and then the bacon bits on top because it sticks better. This recipe will certainly be on our regular rotation over the winter and fall.
Delicious, easy, and fast. Both my husband and I enjoyed it.
Very very easy to make and really quite tasty. Interesting combo. of flavors. Next time i would put less mustard-a little strong for me. Also, the chicken was still pink after only 30 min.-i baked it for 40.
If I make it again, I will use less mustard and will mix the teriyaki sauce with the mustard. Very moist chicken, though.
Really a very tasty, interesting dish. The only hassles were the fact that the time noted in the recipe at that temperature resulted in chicken breasts that were not done - add another 15 min. As well, the cheese came out hard as rock. Might suggest putting it (the cheese) on during last 5-10 min. Otherwise a great dish.
This is delicious--the chicken comes out so moist! I sprayed my dish with PAM, but the sauce still stuck to the bottom--next time I will line the bottom of my dish with foil.
My husband and I loved this recipe. The dijon gave it a wonderful flavor. Try low sodium teriyaki sauce to cut down on the salty flavor.
Normally, I do not cook. EVER. But I decided to surprise my girlfriend with dinner, and this appeared to be a simple way to test my cooking skills. I am so glad I found this recipe!!! Neither one of us likes mustard, so I left the mustard out of the recipe, but it still tasted delicious. I marinated the chicken for two hours in the teriyaki sauce before cooking it. My girlfriend was very surprised, and has raved about the chicken for three days now. To anyone looking for a fast, simple meal that tastes wonderful, this is it!!!
I thought it was pretty good! My fiance on the other hand... did not like it at all, but he doesn't like mustard apparently.
I made a few modifications by using honey mustard and 2 tsp of dijon mustard. I did not have teriyaki sauce so I used worchester. My kids love parmesan, so I served the chicken with extra cheese on the side and they liked it too. Great recipe.
I made these for my husband and myself and I think I used too much mustard because the flavor was overwhelming. The chicken was tender and I will try this again but I'll be careful about the amounts. All of these ingredients have strong flavor.
Husband loved it, quick and easy means I love it!
This was a fine recipe!!! The only thing i did different, since I love teriyaki sauce, was that i used 1/3 cup instead of 1/4 cup. But like i said it is only because thats my preference. Fine recipe Aimee!!!
This was super easy, fast and very tasty. I used real bacon and Kikkomen Garlic and Green Onion Teriyaki sauce.
Made exactly as stated. It was ok but I did find it a bit salty. Super easy though so I'm sad that it wasn't an instant new favorite as I probably wouldn't make it again.
Made it straight from the recipe without changes. It was fantastic! My roommate and I devoured them all. It has the tangy flavor you expect and the other toppings just compliments the chicken perfectly. This is certainly going to be making some repeat appearances, likely with some Italian seasoned rice .
The ingredients sounded a little odd, but this was delicious! I used the Teriyaki Sauce recipe by Kevin from this website instead of store bought. I just used a little cornstarch and water to thicken it. I think that maybe commercial teriyaki sauce may have been the problem for the people who said the dish was too salty. Mine was just right for me. Next time I am going to try using chicken thighs and cooking them in the crock pot! Thanks for sharing.
I marinated the chicken in the mustard and teriyaki for about 3 hours before baking. Used one of the best sauces on the market (Very Yeri Teriyaki), and it was, without a doubt, the SALTIEST tasting chicken I have ever had! The clean up was a pain, too. Next time I'm using foil, because that baking dish is going to have to sit overnight! I guess we'll see what my husband says about it when he tries it tonight, maybe it'll taste better as leftovers. I won't be making this again. Nice idea, though!
Thank you, Aimee! This was not only delicious, but super easy to make!!
This was a very quick and easy recipie, however it was very very salty. I could not finish my one chicken piece.
This is a delicous dish, i put it in the crock pot, then just at the last minuite put the cheese on.
This one is fantastic! My husband NEVER compliments a dish except to say "It's okay". This one he actually said "mmm,very good,babe"! I used Honey mustard instead of Dijon and increased by a 1/4 the teriyaki sauce which i mixed with a bit of teriyaki glaze. I LOVE it!
I thought that this chicken whas great. It is so easy. The only thing that I changed was real bacon bits and I added shredded Cheddar cheese with the parmesean cheese. I love to make at the end of the week then on the weekend for lunch I make sandwitches out of the chicken with hoggie bread. My family loves it!
Although this recipe was very easy to make, the dijon mustard was overpowering. My husband didn't even like it. It just wasn't a very good mix for our tastes. Sorry!
I loved this recipe! Everyone in my family loved it! I only used 6T of dijon mustard, and I used 5 strips of real bacon cooked in the microwave and then added it before baking. I also used a block of parmesan cheese, and grated it myself. YUMMY! I am making this again tonight!
This chicken is very tender and tasty. I was out of bacon bits, so I used low fat bacon that I had on hand, and was still great. The bacon actually tenderized the chicken and it was very moist. Besides that, I followed the recipe exactly. I will be making this again-very easy.
So. Tasty. I really didn't think something that simple would taste so good! Oh... and I used real bacon crumbled in it. May have been the game changer. Still.. amazing. Can't wait to eat the left overs.
The mustard flavor was really overpowering.
This was easy and quick. It got mixed reviews at the table...but I really liked it. I also added cheddar cheese to the top. The sauce kind of slid off the top...next time I will probably marinate the chicken ahead of time.
This was great!! My husband absolutely loved it. He said how great it was at least 3 times while he was eating it. I did us 2 ounces of Dijon mustard plus 2 ounces of Honey mustard. I blended the mustards and the teriyaki sauce before putting it over the chicken. Add the cheese only at the last 10 minutes of cooking. So moist and what a different but great taste. Thanks for a new way to fix chicken!!!
The coating on this chicken is fabulous! It can tast a little salty or overwhelming on a filet, however. I now use it on chicken breasts as they are thicker.
This was a hit at my house! The recipe itself wasn't very descriptive and I covered the entire chicken with Dijon mustard... Definitely will only coat the top next time. Also on my stove, 30 minutes made it a little drier (which was fine to me) and my fiancé requested I cook it a little less next time. That aside it was great!!! I even had leftovers for lunch today!
All of my very picky eaters loved this chicken! With so many chicken recipes out there, this one definitely stands out as flavorful and quick!
This chicken is sooo tender & juicy, I couldn't believe it!I will definitely make it again & again!!
