Tastes from Home with Frito-Lay recipe contest and giveaway (closed!)

As a mom I am always looking for new recipes to try. When my grandmother passed away a couple of years ago I ended up with all of her old cookbooks. Looking through them I saw that there were quite a few I could use and some of them that reminded me of her and home. One of these recipes was honey-mustard chicken. So when Frito-lay emailed me about a recipe contest that reminded me of home I had to submit this one.

Honey Mustard Glazed Chicken (makes 4 servings
1 Tablespoon honey
2 Tablespoon brown sugar
2 Tablespoon of Dijon Mustard
4 chicken breast halves (we use skinned and with bone about 4 oz a breast)

Preheat oven to 375
Combine honey, brown sugar and mustard in a small bowl and stir well. Place chicken in a 11 x 7 x 2 inch baking dish. Spray dish with cooking spray or coat with butter. Brush glaze over the chicken. Cover and bake for 20 Min's (15 for smaller breast). Uncover and then broil chicken for about 2 Min's until golden brown. Then serve (we usually do a mashed potato)

I love Frito-lay chips and they have some tasty ones. They have come out with Regional chips that were inspired by popular regional cuisine. Here are some of them

Northeastern U.S. – Lay’s Honey Mustard
Midwestern U.S. – Lay’s Creamy Garden Ranch
Northwestern U.S. – Lay’s Balsamic Sweet Onion
Southwestern U.S. – Lay’s Chipotle Ranch
Southeastern U.S. – Lay’s Cajun Herb & Spice

**All of the Lay's Regional Flavored potato chips are made with all natural ingredients and cooked in healthier oils, like corn and sunflower oils, which contain 80% or more of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat - the "good fats." They also contain 0 grams of trans fats per serving.

**There’s also less sodium in them than you might think – a 1-oz serving of our Lay’s Regional Flavored potato chips contains less salt than a plain bagel!

I can't wait to try the Cajun Herb & spice and the Balsamic Sweet onion.
