Honey Spice Chicken Breasts

This was a recipe given to my mom by one of her co-workers and quickly became a favorite at our house. The marinade is delicious and we typically boil it to spoon over the chicken for serving. It's a versatile chicken; great for salads, sandwiches, or as a stand alone dish.
1. You need 4T. olive oil, 1/2c. honey, 1/8t. rosemary, 2T. Dijon mustard, 2T. minced garlic, 1/4c. lime juice, and 3 chicken breasts (halved).

2. You need to first make the marinade. In a large skillet (large enough to hold the chicken breasts), combine all the ingredients except the chicken. Heat over medium-high heat and mix well. Remove skillet from heat. Place chicken in warm marinade for a half an hour. 

3. Prepare the grill. Remove chicken from marinade and cook 7-9 minutes (4-5 minutes per side) until cooked through. Baste with marinade while cooking. As I said before, you can boil the marinade (I'm paranoid and boil for about 5 minutes) to serve over cooked chicken. It's easy to make extra and freeze in strips for salads.
